The almost fully virtual fashion week runs until Tuesday, with only Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Etro hosting physical shows. Highlights include the first collection by Glenn Martens for Diesel and eight new labels.
Milan's women's ready-to-wear fashion week will once again be taking place via a phygital format. The event runs from 23 February to 1 March and will feature 61 shows, including big-name brands and new arrivals.
White, the uniquely located fashion-forward Milanese tradeshow, this month plans to celebrate Made in Italy and support sustainability, while it showcases several exciting new talents in its upcoming 300-brand salon.
Finally, after 15 weeks of runway confinement, Etro staged fashion’s first, proper, live fashion show in Milan on Wednesday before a real – and not virtual – masked audience practising social distancing.
The Camera della Moda has unveiled the schedule for July's Milan Digital Fashion Week, with 39 video displays, presentations and live events – a season including mega labels like Prada, Gucci, Zegna and Dolce & Gabbana.
Designers are clamoring for a radical change in the fashion system; for less seasons and shows and later fashion week dates. But Carlo Capasa, president of the Camera, still expects to have four Fashion Weeks per year.
One day after Alessandro Michele, creative director of Gucci, revealed on Instagram that the brand would in future stage only two shows per year, the designer called for a reformulation of the fashion calendar.
