Milan Fashion Week starts on Tuesday 17 with an exciting calendar featuring new names like Boss and Peter Pilotto; a host of Chinese designers and emerging talent; and Italy’s leading labels, except for Roberto Cavalli.
The south China-based trade show wrapped up its 2016 edition with a 15% increase in visitor attendance, according to organisers. Some 37 countries participated with a 10% increase in international exhibitors.
The British offshoot of the Chinese ready-to-wear giant seems to be backpedalling. The brand, focused on men’s tailoring, is to move its sales and design teams home from China, according to Chinese and English media.
