A new chapter in Fast Fashion
Fashion Editors threaten to skip Milan Fashion Week
Oh-oh. The SS12 collections have just been presented and we are already thinking about next year’s schedule. But that’s the Fashion Industry, right?
The CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) and la Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (in English: the National Chamber for Italian Fashion) present… Americans vs Italians: Battle of the Catwalks. Four Fashion capitals involved.
After three years of having agreed that NY Fashion Week would start the second Thursday of each September, revolution is on its way. Milan says that the agreement would last for only 3 years as temporary agreement whilst New York keeps their schedule strong. The whole discussion is about Milan having a week delay on their production if they are forced to adapt their Fashion Shows’ schedules to follow up with NY’s. The National Chamber for Italian Fashion made the decision to re-arrange their schedules leaving the whole Fashion industry astonished, as it overlaps with both NY and London’s Fashion Week. The schedule for the Spring 2013 collections would remain as follows:
- New York: September 13 to 20
- London: September 21 to 25
- Milan: September 19 to 25
- Paris: October 2 to 10
