In a recent interview to a leading magazine, the president of the Camera Della Moda, Carlo Capasa, said that idea behind conducting digital Fashion Week is to do something different from usual Fashion Week. According to a statement released by The Giorgio Armani Group, Milan Fashion week’s men’s collection will be displayed in September.
Talking about the September edition, Capasa said that it will a regular Fashion Week and not digital. The number of people may be less than usual and the show may not be as grand as before. But hopefully will be a physical event. Anyway, everything depends on what the situation would be during that time and if travelling will be allowed.
