VICENZA — “This can be considered a record edition,” proudly said Matteo Marzotto, executive vice president of Italian Exhibition Group, the organizer of jewelry trade show VicenzaOro, which closed here on Jan. 24. “The fair is sold out since October and in the first three days we registered an 11 percent increase in the number of buyers.”
Highlighting Italian Exhibition Group’s efforts to make the trade show more international, Marzotto also added that the 54 percent of the buyers attending the trade show were coming from out of Italy. According to Marzotto, the most appealing countries for jewelry manufacturing are China, Indonesia, the U.S. and northern Europe.
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
