Eye on Fashion
Milan Fashion Week 21st – 27th February 2018
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.
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 one 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.
25th September 2017: Gucci and Prada are the soldest Italian logos in the world. Certified by an US agency
25th September 2017: The former “Vogue Italia” Director, Franca Sozzani, who passed away this past year, had a tribute movie, shot by her son and who was projected only for three days in late September in the Italian cinema. Design in peace, Franca
18th November 2017: the famous and awesome French designer Azzedine Alaia passes away. He was the one who dressed top models in the 80’s, Grace Jones and Michelle Obama within the rest. He was one of those rare designers who understood the connection between rock music and fashion and kept it alive. Design in peace.
18th December 2017: Borsalino, the famous Italian brand of hats declared bankruptcy: lots of workers and employees risk to be fired. We hope no more foreign industry would buy this brand and that the Italian Governors would do whatever possible to save and to defend the “Made in Italy”
20th December 2017: the brand of Italian lingerie “La Perla” was sold to a Chinese company. Now we understand and support it when foreigner managers find our territory an amazing place where to spend money and where to make business, but we are losing too many brands.
9th January 2018: the Versace family is not appreciating very much the dedicated US TV series featuring Penelope Cruz, Ricky Martin, on life and murder of Gianni Versace. So sad…
15th – 21st January 2018: Milan Fashion week Menswear: Fendi, Armani and Versace applied to rent public areas for their fashion sets at the open air, the rest held their shows inside private venues.
8th – 14th February 2018: Breaking news from the Fashion Week Womenswear: Pitti, Chanel raised controversy over the treatment reserved on their shows. Moncler wanted to set up an open air dinner in piazza della Scala, Milan, but the event got a staggering price and they gave up. The crew of the National Chamber of Fashion have once again stressed us, all the time: those guys will never learn we don’t work just for them!
