The programme for the Milan Fashion Week, scheduled from February 18 to 24, features a wealth of new talent, notably from China, Hungary and Africa, plus Emilio Pucci’s catwalk come-back and a host of other events.
In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, Italian fashion's governing body has undertaken several projects dedicated to China for this fashion week, while also announcing a 1.8% drop in sales for the beginning of 2020.
The fashion tradeshow, which came to a close in Milan, strengthened this edition with more than 300 exhibitors on show and a host of special projects targeted at international guests. However, Italian numbers were down.
The catwalk bandwagon has rolled on so what do we make of LFW now labels big and small are back in their studios (hopefully) writing firm orders? There was plenty to love as well as some challenging looks in a busy week.
The London shows start on February 17 at an unprecedented time of uncertainty for the fashion industry. Unsurprisingly, change is on the agenda but there's also continuity and the return of some old faces to the event.
