Fashion Week Menswear 22nd – 29th June 2013
Maria “Nefer” Suvio. We welcome on board a new promising talented young Italian designer and stylist. Her designs are just awesome and she seems to really have good taste. Heartfelt congrats on all you do and all support! Hope to see your clothing line being showed in the future Milan Fashion Weeks!
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. He has not applied this time, too. His fierce enemy is the newly elected Mayor, so he’s doing his fashion shows inside private clubs and private venues, where our permission is not required.
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.
Versace, Armani applied.
Krizia went and got their February authorization issued for the past February week. Although they paid on time, we can’t figure out why Krizia wanted now an out-of-dated document, which is not valid for use in this Fashion week.
This Fashion week is never very “crowded” of events: due to period of the year, June is a month for vacation; due to the current economic crisis.
The National Fashion Chamber provided us with their detailed schedule of exhibitions, fashion shows and other events due to take place during the “September Woman Fashion Week”: were they afraid of not arriving on time?
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.
RIP Ottavio Misson.
Despite the tragic mysterious fact, their Maison carried on with their plans for the Fashion Weeks: we admire their decision to carry on.
