SHANGHAI — European fashion houses are getting ready to put a stylish spin on the World Expo, which kicks off here this weekend.
Fashion will figure prominently within the Italian pavilion, which features a replica of the dome of Florence’s Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore. Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and Ermenegildo Zegna each crafted an exclusive supersize look for the Expo, which will be displayed on mannequins towering at more than 11 feet. Zegna contributed a classic men’s suit, while Dolce & Gabbana made a black tulle number with a voluminous skirt. A wall of the designers’ fashions in real-life proportions will round out the display.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
