Elie Tahari Fetes New Bag... Fashion's Night Out's Global Push...

Emmy Rossum had a surprise visitor when she feted the Emmy Bag she created with Elie Tahari at his West Broadway boutique on Thursday: her mother.

FASHION’S NIGHT OUT’S GLOBAL PUSH: It won’t just be the U.S. that gets a slice of the Fashion’s Night Out action. As in previous years, the event will take place globally. There will be 17 countries participating in this fall’s event, starting on Sept. 6, when Russia’s Fashion’s Night Out will take place. That will be followed by Spain on Sept. 7, with Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Portugal, the U.K. and São Paulo, Brazil, all holding their events on Sept. 8, along with the U.S. Come Sept. 9, Brazil will hold another event, in Rio de Janeiro, followed by Taiwan and India on the 10th, China on the 11th and Turkey on Sept. 15.

Alexandra Shulman, editor of British Vogue, said of the London event: “We’re delighted to draw people’s attention to the fact that fashion and retail are a hugely important and enjoyable part of [the U.K.’s] economy. Last year, we had 270 stores in central London participating, while shoppers embraced the mood in what felt like one large party,” she said. “We’re looking forward to an even bigger and brighter night later this year.”
