Eye on Fashion
Milan Fashion Week September 18th – 24th September 2017
We are happy our music heroes are recruting teens within our fan base, which is made also of older people, to advertise their t-shirts and items of clothings off their ctaalogue of their own merchandise.
Valentino is owned by the Arabian Emirates; Krizia is owned by non – Italian hands: the famous “Made in Italy” logo was born here to be sold away.
Another fashion-related trademark is owned by non-Italian guys: Bulgari.
Top models in music? In the 80s few top models made amazing albums, although they were not 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!
“Punk Masters” by American designer Patty Palazzo: Patty is an awesome woman-designer, very much 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. The gracious and talented Patty is hosted in this space as “special guest” in the behind the scenes of the Milan Fashion Weeks.
June 20th – Italian designer Carla Fendi passes away. Design in peace, your legacy is awesome.
11th July 2017 – The Vogue Fashion Night out is scheduled on 14th September. Although the pioneer of this event is gone (Lady Carla Sozzani passed away last December), our City Council decided to carry on setting the same event in memoriam.
15th /16th July 2017 – Sad day as it was the 20th anivrersary of Gianni Versace’s death, the Italian designer. Many people and many popstars remembered him on their social pages. He was missed and he will be missed. Design in peace. The day after we cried to the memory of Elio Fiorucci.
Mid-July: in September, the Italian National Chamber of Fashion will present designs of clothes and of cars for the so-called “Green fashion”, that is: prototypes of clothing and of design products conceived by using sustainable sources of energy and fabrics, materials. Can’t wait to see the projects!
21st July: the export of the “Made in Italy” design in the world has grown fast in the past few months: fashion, food and tourism are the newly re-generated fields of our economy. + 2% of income. Awesome!
Late July: Tiffany launched a party for the opening of a new store in piazza del Duomo, Milan and few awesome famous designers were guests at the meeting: Missoni, Versace. Glamour as ever!
August 1st: The Milan Council already announced the four traditional Fashion Weeks of next year and the “Art Week” in April. Wow, our Mayor didn’t want to waste time by anticipating things of 6 months … .
Late August: Italian designer Roberto Cavalli is back to do fashion shows out, open air, no longer inside private venues. The Milan City Council offered him the place that once was usually occupied to British designer John Richmond and after a long dealing, Cavalli on September 6th, accepted!! Awesome.
7th September: LMHV and Bulgari, two of the leading world fashion companies announced to not “welcome” in their casting too thin girls: this to discourage very young women to fall into depression and food diseases. Finally, it is a step forward to fight the stereotype that “only thin looks beautiful” (so wrong…)
