MILAN — Italy’s fashion industry is thawing at last, according to the country’s Chamber of Fashion, following the “frost” that numbed the industry in 2008.
“While 2009 started off in the worst possible way, the past two months revealed better-than-expected retail sales, boosted by early summer weather and a newfound shopping drive,” said Mario Boselli, head of the chamber, during a presentation Monday of Milan’s four-day Men’s Fashion Week, which kicks off Saturday.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
