Fashion's Night Out has swelled to a week-long event, starting September 7 and running through September 16. It sounds exhausting, but the trick is that festivities will be held all over the globe: "France will open the 10-day event on Sept. 7, with Britain and Korea on the 8th; Australia, Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal on the 9th; India, Russia and the U.S. on the 10th; China, Japan and Taiwan on the 11th, and Greece and Turkey wrapping things up on the 16th." So really it's just going to be the event's planners who need a nap when things wrap up. [WWD, subscription req'd]
