Designers like David Grillo, Alberto Zambelli, Leitmotiv and Bav Tailor, under the aegis of Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (the National Chamber of Italian Fashion), will also be showcasing their designs on the opening day of the event.
This association proves, yet again that the universal language of fashion, whose evolution has braced construction and deconstruction of various identities, diverse narratives over the years, indeed has the power of bringing two different cultures together that speak the same common language of design and style, on one platform.
