MILAN — Where to sell? For some Italian children’s wear companies, the answer is: not in Italy. Here, the local children’s fashion industry has suffered more than the adult fashion industry, because the domestic economy remains stagnant and only about 30 percent of the country’s kids’ wear is exported.
This figure has remained relatively stable over the past six years, according to Sistema Moda Italia and ISTAT, the Italian statistics institute, which reported in June 2013 the sector’s turnover in 2012 at 2.6 billion euros, or about $3.6 billion at current exchange, a 0.6 percent drop from the previous year.

"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.
