Fashion Week Woman 20th – 26th February 2013
Levy – Skaist and Nash-Taylor, a couple of brilliant American women designers, who are, also affectedly, close to the moderator of this column have founded and launched in February 2012 a new clothing label and line, in Los Angeles, named “Nowness”: sending them all of the rest of the DD TV’s crew support and waiting for their first fashion show in Milan in the future.
John Richmond (one of our favourite designers who, within the rest, created the merchandise for the 2004 DD Reunion tour and who in 2009 during a Milan show put a DD dedicated music set). He didn’t take part this time and we miss his style… but when it’s due he has to pay the fee for the rent of public areas, as the other designers did and do.
PUNK MASTERS BY PATTY PALAZZO (it’s a sort of Juicy Couture’s branch office, all over the world; she is the designer of some cool drum logos, played by you know who): she’s been doing new designs for new tees.
Patty is hosted in this space as “special guest” in the behind the scenes of the Milan Fashion Weeks.
The Fashion National Chamber has booked for the usual areas near the Cathedral to place stages and big ledwall screens for the fashion shows. Nervous dealings for the location of their activities and on the amount of the total due. There was a Mercedes Benz car to show, as Mercedes is their main sponsor, but the City Council Administration rejected the car appearance: this resulted into another nervous “give and take” that resulted in favour of the Fashion Chamber.
Versace, Armani, Roberto Cavalli, Krizia, Chanel applied.
Roberto Cavalli and the Council Administration were on animated deals for the payment of the final amount due.
Sending our huge support to the Missoni’s family, ‘coz the Master designer Ottavio Misson’s eldest son, Vittorio Missoni, mysteriously disappeared while boarding on his comeback flight to Italy from Los Roques, Venezuela, this past 4th January.
Despite the tragic mysterious fact, their Maison carried on with their plans for the Fashion Weeks: we admire their decision to carry on.
