The "Made in Italy" authorities, led by the President of the Camera della Moda, Carlo Capasa, have sounded the alarm and appealed to public authorities to confirm their support for the country’s fashion industry.
The Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana has re-elected Carlo Capasa as its president for a two-year term. This is the third time that Capasa has been elected as president of the Camera, Italian fashion's governing body.
With big industry names, celebrities, and grand runway events from Moncler and Tommy Hilfiger, not to mention Versace's double anniversary, Milan Fashion Week, which starts this Tuesday, promises to be action-packed.
The Italian fashion chamber has announced a provisional Milan Fashion Week calendar for women's, to be held from February 20 to 26, with Moncler making its debut, Pucci returning and a show-event from Tommy Hilfiger.
Art, happenings, exhibitions and novel parties are on the schedule in Milan this coming season – and of course a whole lot of menswear when the action starts on Friday evening, Jan 12 in the Italian fashion capital.
