It’s no secret that the fashion world is desperately seeking new talent. So Alta Roma and Italian Vogue tackled the issue with “Who Is on Next?” — a show aimed at putting new names on the radar held in July in Rome. As part of the deal, the three finalist firms — Albino D’Amato, Carlo Alberto Pregnolato and Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi for 6267 — were promised a spot during Milan show week. Here’s what they came up with on Wednesday morning.
Albino D’Amato made good use of his degree in architecture by playing with shapes and volume, at times in an artsy manner. The Roman designer snubbed pants in favor of boxy dresses or flare-‘n’-flounce skirts, which he paired with structured blouses with a Victorian edge or others with collars that fanned out over the shoulders.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
“The name of the show is GP — giant pockets,” said Karl Lagerfeld pre-show, in his backstage meeting room at @Fendi to Bridget Foley. @Bellahadid was one of the many famous faces who graced the catwalk including @Gigihadid, @Adwoaaboah, and yes, even @Kendalljenner. #wwdfashion

“We are obsessed with Fendi and we want to share this obsession,” said CEO Serge Brunschwig to WWD. @Fendi will be releasing a new capsule collection Oct. 16 centered around the Fendi/Fila logo created by Instagram artist @Hey_reilly. Further proving the logo trend isn’t going anywhere. Link in our bio for more details. #wwdfashion
