Fashion month September is giving us the long-awaited Milan Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2023. Maisons of great repute alongside other labels are unveiling their SS23 collections in the fashion mecca that is Milan. Let us give you a quick overview of what to expect this week
What is Milan Fashion Week?
Twice a year in February and September, fashion brands descend upon Milan to showcase their Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer collections for the season ahead. From fashionistas and reporters to couturiers and models, the city comes alive in the most stylish way.
The weeklong event is partially organised by The National Chamber for Italian Fashion. It coordinates and promotes the development of Italian fashion.
Each fashion week delivers around 70 fashion shows and 90 presentations of designers to an international audience in standard arrangements, including catwalk shows, designer showrooms and static presentations. In addition to its womenswear shows, Milan also hosts events such as Milan Fashion Week Men’s in January and June, which are dedicated to menswear but considerably smaller in size and reach.
This year, Milan Fashion Week will take place from September 20 to 26, 2022.
Where does it take place?
Milan Fashion Week dedicates various venues to showcasing the most elegant and influential palaces to become the design stage. It recently relocated to three main venues in Milan: Spazio Cavallerizze, Palazzo Reale’s Sala delle Cariatidi, and the Padiglione Visconti.
