Fashion Week 23rd – 28th September 2015
Some of the new models are now kids of the most famous models of the 80s and they often do their job during our Fashion Week; another famous 80s star daughter is a make-up artist and she is busy behind the scenes: to these growing stars our support! We are glad to have you here more than one time during the year.
Valentino is owned by the Arabian Emirate, Krizia is owned by non – Italian hands: the famous “Made in Italy” logo was born here to be sold away.
Missoni’s brand is crossing a hard moment: the loss of two family members was just too much. All support guys!
Top models in music? In the 80s few top models made amazing albums, although they were properly professional singers: We pay homage to Sade, Brenda Russell, the late Whitney Houston started as a top model and ended up as a vocalist. Later Naomi Campbell did an album. The most successful was the lovely Sade. Rock on girls with your style.
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). We think John might be back next year, if he finds a better agreement with the 2016 newly elected Mayor.
PUNK MASTERS BY PATTY PALAZZO: Patty is an awesome woman-designer on demand. She can create some cool drum logos (played by some awesome drummers): she’s been doing designs for new tees, she designed artworks for records and books.
Patty is hosted in this space as “special guest” in the behind the scenes of the Milan Fashion Weeks.
RIP to Italian designer Elio Fiorucci, (remember the flowers on the jeans? And the angels?) who passed away on 20th July. He was an amazing designer… what a legacy. We’ll miss you.
By the way of the above amazing prematurely gone Italian designer, there should have been in late October a big event on the international campaign against violence on women to which he gave artistic, visual contribution. The event is slated to November because of the MTV Europe Music Awards and the other more or less relevant Expo closing events. Phew!
Again only the mega screens to project the fashion shows were booked by the National Chamber of Fashion: their Management changed and it could be a move of austerity. The National Chamber of Fashion pavilion is at the Milan Expo area.
On 8th September, in Monte Napoleone street a funny fashion show took place: on the catwalk the guests could see top models doing their job, not so far from them, some 5 sheep on a real meadow carpet were parked. All to promote woollen items of clothings.
The Vogue Fashion Night out is opening the Fashion Week, on 22/9 with a lot of events around in the town: overwhelming response of public.
