MILAN — While staying firm on the September 2012 dates, Italy’s Camera Nazionale della Moda has come up with its own plan for show dates after that.
Following a board meeting on Wednesday, Italy’s chamber said it accepted the proposal put forward in October by Diane von Furstenberg, president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, to begin New York Fashion Week on the second Thursday in September, starting in 2013. But the chamber made two conditions: First, New York would have to shed its last day, so that London can have an extra day to present its men’s wear collections, and, second, Paris would have to agree with the schedule. It would mean that Paris, as always, would have to go after Milan and its shows wouldn’t start until Oct. 2 in 2013 and Oct. 1 in 2014, slightly later than currently.
