Salvatore Ferragamo showed a textured collection of furry coats, metallic dresses and leopard-print skirt suits for autumn and winter, in a startlingly bright white room. As Italy installs a new government and struggles to emerge from recession, the national chamber of fashion (CNMI) is strongly promoting a sector it forecasts will earn 62.5 billion http://www.chicemma.com euros ($85.63 million) in revenue in 2014. Billboards at Milan's airports read "Welcome to Milan Fashion Week" and screens in the city's streets are streaming footage of the catwalks, which finish on February 24. Ferragamo Chief Executive Michele Norsa said before the brand's show he hoped the new government could make changes that would directly benefit the luxury industry. "For our sector what is really important is the capacity to attract attention, traffic, tourism and invest in infrastructure. I think (the new government) can do some of these things, and I hope they do them quite quickly." Beppe Angiolini, head of the Italian Chamber of Fashion Buyers, said he found the mood during the fashion week, which ends on February 24, "quite positive".

A FAMILY AFFAIR Rosita Missoni watched her daughter Angela's creations from a seat near the runway entrance accompanied by her grandchildren. She said she felt "the pride of having created a business, a job, which my children enjoy to continue. I think this is a privilege." The presence of three Missoni generations was a touching show of familial strength, following the death of CEO Vittorio Missoni, Angela's brother, in a plane crash in January 2013 followed four months later by the death of family patriarch and company co-founder Ottavio Missoni at age of 92.

Turns out industry insiders have known for months about the deal, which was thanks in some part to de Vincenzo's relationship with Silvia Venturini Fendi, whose fashion house already falls under LVMH.
Some people are lucky enough to treat themselves occasionally to a bit of high fashion, but that really is not the point of featuring fashion in a newspaper. You see, the difference between fashion coverage in a newspaper and a catalogue is that a newspaper is not telling you to buy the clothes. It is simply showing them. It is no more telling you to buy them than it is telling you to buy the latest iPhone when it covers various Apple launches. It often seems to me that when readers express outrage at high-end clothes being featured in a newspaper (or supplement magazine) what they actually feel is attacked.
