Milan Fashion Week 21st – 27th September 2016
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 hope John could be back with his old huge shows in town very soon, we hope the newly elected Mayor would do better things with fashion.

15th September – Safety is the biggest deal of the 2016 September Milan Fashion week. Everyone is excited, but behind the scenes, we were all seriously concerned on the steps and measures to take, in order to help to make it a serene, welcoming, quiet Fashion week. In view of the latest terrorist attacks, it was the first time we could really test the level of our alliance, the chemistry, the coordination between us and the various authorities involved. It was challenging, but luckily there is nothing to fear.
