Women's Fashion Week will take place in Milan from 18 to 23 September. The National Chamber of Italian Fashion has prepared a full and interesting calendar of fashion shows with a total of 74 events for 67 different fashion houses.
Over 170 runway shows will be presenting the Spring/Summer 2014 collections of such great houses as Prada, Gucci, Etro, Iceberg, Alberta Ferretti, Jil Sander, Trussardi, Blumarine and many others. Two new young talents, who are loved by the press and international buyers, will be showing in Milan for the first time: Fausto Puglisi and Massimiliano Giorgetti, the creators of the MSGM brand.
This year will see some exciting new event locations: the City has given permission to use such historical buildings as the "La Scala" theatre, the "Galleria" mall and the "Sforza" castle. As with previous events, an important element will be the Fashion Hub, a network of fashion show locations in the heart of the city, where most of the shows will take place. Thanks to this, the beautiful Piazza dei Mercanti will host giant screens for the week presenting the fashion shows of the day, as well as hair and makeup professionals offering their beauty tips to all.
