Sumary of Milan Fashion Week hears calls for more designer diversity:
- Jean noted that the new designers for major fashion brands did not come up through the Italian system but from abroad.
- Conde Nast and European fashion magazine nss are helping to fund their production.
- The three WAMI founders are covering the rest from their own pockets after the fashion council offered a location for the show but limited funding compared with previous seasons.
- Buchanan said he holds on to his optimism but acknowledged that the post-pandemic market is arduous as stores are not investing in collections by new designers.
