MILAN — As part of its ongoing rejuvenation and internationalization, Milan Fashion Week in September will be bookended by the first Fashion Film Festival Milano, a new talent search, the brainchild of Constanza Cavalli Etro.
The festival, running Sept. 14 and 15, will also hold an exhibition of fashion short videos by established designer brands. Partnering with the Italian Chamber of Fashion, the films will be visible throughout fashion week in Milan, running Sept. 17 to 22. The festival’s closing event will take place on Sept. 22 at the Triennale museum with a cocktail party for about 300 guests with screenings paying tribute to visionaries in fashion filmmaking.
