On the opening day of the Pitti Bimbo childrenswear show in Florence, the Italian fashion industry's employers association published the sector's 2018 results: revenue was €2.98 billion, up 4.2% thanks to exports.
French children’s fashion group Children Worldwide Fashion has brought in funds from Arkéa, its new majority shareholder, and Raise to its capital. The move is supported by Dzeta and its management team.
The Florentine childrenswear show will introduce a new section, ‘The Kid's Lab!’, presenting all the latest experimental approaches in childrenswear, while the Armani group will make its maiden appearance at the show.
The French childrenswear group has confirmed the departure of Pablo Badia, who served as the director of its Spanish and Portuguese division since 2013. He has been replaced by Manuel Ildefonso, who leaves Kidiliz Group.
