MILAN — The Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, Italy’s Chamber of Fashion, said Monday the women’s runway shows will no longer be held at the Fashion Milano Center location, beginning in September.
“We are working with Milan’s administration to stage fashion shows around historic locations in the city,” said Mario Boselli, head of the Chamber. Boselli said the number of fashion brands showing at FMC halved in February, making the change a logical consequence. “The mood there was just not right anymore,” said Boselli, also pointing to high costs connected to that location.
