MILAN — Italy’s fashion brands are joining forces to revamp Milan Fashion Week — and the industry’s heavyweights are contributing by personally getting involved and pledging increased financial support.
“We are all guilty, designers and entrepreneurs alike. We’ve been selfish and did not catch the opportunities offered in the Nineties. We simply believed Milan would continue to be successful,” said Prada chief Patrizio Bertelli, the Chamber of Fashion’s newly appointed vice president. “The composition of markets has made the position of Milan more critical. The whole system should recite the mea culpa, but now that we’ve realized this, we are working on revitalizing Milan.”
"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)
