MILAN — The Italian children’s wear industry is prepared for 2013 with a positive attitude, despite euro zone woes and the slowdown of the fashion business in general, which, according to the Fashion Economic Trends study published by the nation’s Chamber of Fashion, was expected to close 5.6 percent down in 2012 against 2011.
“The children’s business at our flagship store on Piazza del Duomo in Milan is performing very well and this year, thanks to the new layout and areas, we are more than satisfied with the results,” said Cinzia Baldelli, head of children’s wear at La Rinascente department store, revealing that the division closed 2012 up 7 percent compared with 2011. “With these premises, we have very ambitious goals for 2013.”

"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.
