From the 18th to the 24th of September 2018, the capital of Lombardy will host Milan Women’s Fashion Week, one of the most prestigious events curated by the National Chamber of Italian Fashion, featuring two appointments per year, whose organisation is managed by a network of thousands of fashion experts.

Milan Women’s Fashion Week: creativity and organisation!

The fashion shows for the women’s collection have always been the most awaited moment for the international fashion scene, and confirm Milan as an indispensable reference in the industry worldwide.

Milan gathers more than 1000 showrooms and, during the Milan Women’s Fashion week, the city will host more than 170 fashion shows and presentations. An ideal showcase for the big fashion houses, who made the “Made in Italy” famous around the world, and for new talents, who represent the future of an industry that oozes creativity.

The fashion shows in September will attract fashion experts from around the world to present the best female fashion collections for next spring-summer 2019.

The impressive event, as in the edition of last February, will gravitate around the new Fashion Hub of the Spazio Cavallerizze, a large area with 1600 square meters within the Science and Technology Museum, which, after a long renovation process, will contain the new press room, a large room for fashion shows and two presentation rooms. But there is more.

  • As in previous editions, the City of Milan will open the Sala delle Cariatidi of Palazzo Reale (famous for the 40 sculptures of the 18th century that adorn its walls).
  • The Scalone dell’Arengario will be the protagonist of the catwalks of the most famous fashion brands. It is found in Piazza Duomo, the all-time favourite location for the Fashion Week.
  • A great emphasis will be also given to the new catwalk room in the Visconti Pavilion: 1,200 square meters in the heart of the Teatro alla Scala.
