MILAN (AP) — A tale of two cities: The Milan Fashion Chamber is claiming a victory with Costume National's decision to preview its womenswear collection in Milan after two decades in Paris.
Milan fashion officials are seeking to reinvigorate Milan's four annual fashion weeks with collateral events and a bolstered calendar.
Beyond the return of the Italian fashion house Costume National, eight other fashion houses will hold women's shows in Milan for the first time during the womenswear previews set to run from Sept. 18-23. They include Tod's, German designer Philipp Plein and Italy's Fausto Puglisi.
Milan's top fashion official, Cristina Tajani, told reporters that the next Milan Fashion Week will be a tangible sign of "a new aggressiveness of our system."
