Top Italian designers to stay away from Milan Fashion Week
May '13
Head of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion, Mario Boselli, has declared that the top Italian designers, including Giorgio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana, will not showcase as part of the official programme during the Milan Fashion Week starting next month.
Armani and Dolce & Gabbana are not associated with the Italian fashion chamber and continue to hold out from participation. As a result, they will no longer be presenting their men’s collection during the Fashion Week, Mr. Boselli said.
He added that the association aims to represent the entire Italian fashion fraternity, but the two designer labels are non due-paying members of the national fashion chamber and hence will not be included in the Milan Fashion Week, AFP reported.
Earlier in a statement, Mr. Giorgio Armani said that he would be a part of the association only if other fashion houses, including Prada, Valentino and Moschino, stop showing their collections in other countries and return to Italy.
However, Mr. Boselli expressed optimism that the country’s top designers like Armani will join the Italian fashion chamber as they will add value to it.
The Milan Fashion Week is owned by the National Chamber for Italian Fashion, a non-profit association which co-ordinates and promotes the development of Italian Fashion and is responsible for hosting fashion events and shows in Milan.
