CERNOBBIO, Italy — Exhibitors at the 56th edition of the Ideacomo silk fair said they were working hard to keep their businesses solid despite weak economies in many of Italy’s key export markets.
"The ongoing economic downturn has changed the way the silk industry does business," said Beppe Pisani, president of Ideacomo, at the three-day fair, which closed here on Oct. 5. "It has widened the distance between companies with a good client base and good products and companies that are perhaps in a less fortunate position. There is no longer a common standard that allows all of us to get by."
"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)
