MILAN — Italian mills tried to lift the dark mood at Milano Unica last week with fabric collections enriched with edgy trends.
At the eighth edition of the textile show, which ran Feb. 3 to 6 at the Milan fairgrounds, talk centered on the recession, which was underscored by an 18 percent drop in exhibitors to 543. Visitor numbers were also down 20 percent to 24,000.
