CLOSE-KNIT FAMILY: The Missonis have another budding designer in their midst. Theresa, the 14-year-old daughter of creative director Angela Missoni, is a whiz with recycled T-shirts, cutting, shredding and decorating them into sexy shapes. During fittings for the Missoni show Monday, Theresa actually made a sale: to model Gisele Bündchen, who insisted on paying. "I’m a supporter of young designers," Bündchen told the Missoni clan.That being the case, young Theresa should raise her prices: Even though Bündchen is only doing a few shows this week — Missoni, Dolce & Gabbana and Prada — sources estimate she’s pulling down between $25,000 and $40,000 per show. Not that that’s her record. Word has it a Brazilian firm recently paid her $200,000 for an exclusive appearance. ABOUT FACE: Marc Jacobs will soon have a supermodel to watch over him — and all his employees. The Jacobs company just purchased a massive painting of Christy Turlington by New York artist Richard Phillips to add to its collections of snapshots of the supermodel. Phillips’ photo-realistic image of Turlington’s face adorns the cover of the current issue of V and is destined for several exhibitsbefore landing at Jacobs’ headquarters.IF YOU BUILD IT…: It wasn’t quite built in a day, but it was still an Italian engineering feat. The massive venue for Roberto Cavalli’s show Monday practically rivaled the Fiera in scale and resembled a lavish set from "Turandot." The structure was built from scratch in under two weeks with a crew of some 300. The designer has a six-month exclusive on the site.FASHION 101: Tourists walking through the Galleria in Milan’s center Monday stumbled upon a fashion roundtable outside the Prada flagship. But it wasn’t Miuccia expounding on her vision of sexiness. Instead, Beatrice and Francesco Trussardi were giving their views on the connection between fashion and sport.Luisa Beccari, Marta Marzotto and Mario Boselli, president of Italy’s Camera della Moda, are among fashion figures giving lectures this week on such topics as "Who Is More Vain: Men or Women?"
