MONZA, Italy — A 45-minute drive away from Milan Fashion Week, in another traffic-clogged Italian city, fashion was also a hot topic as Alber Elbaz addressed a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization conference in his inimitable, candid style.
“I’m here to tell the story of fashion,” he told a packed room at the 18th-century Villa Reale on the opening day of UNESCO’s World Forum on Culture and Cultural Industries, which runs through Saturday. “In front of us, we designers have a blank page, and we have to fill it up with dreams and stories.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
