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.
