MILAN — Silky trains and Swarovski-studded bodices marched front and center as an array of domestic and international exhibitors showcased 171 bridal collections at bridal fair Si Sposaitalia Collezioni last month.
Despite a downswing in the overall Italian economy and consumer spending, the number of collections on the Fieramilanocity fairgrounds was up 11 percent compared with last year. Buyers and exhibitors here maintain Italy is still an important market, in terms of both revenue and quality.
