MILAN — The fashion and luxury goods industry may not be immune to the financial crisis but that’s no reason to panic, according to Gianni Versace SpA chief executive officer Giancarlo Di Risio.
Instead, “You need to be careful not to make moves which could invalidate the positioning of your brand. Above all, you need to be consistent with your strategy and consistent with yourself…because you have to be a precise reference point for your client,” Di Risio said Tuesday in an interview at the Italian fashion group’s headquarters here.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
