MILAN -- The long-awaited schedule for presentations of this month's designer collections here was finally issued late last week after a traumatic series of scheduling conflicts, unproductive meetings, and a lot of frustration on the part of the fashion houses and organizers at the Camera della Moda.

With less than two weeks to go until showtime, the Milan fashion community breathed a sigh of relief and could finally get around to the business of printing invitations and organizing seat arrangements.

Giuseppe della Schiava, president of the Camera della Moda, apologized to the press and buyers for the delay. "If the designers were all soldiers and we could just line them all up in a row it would be easy, but they're not," he said.
