FASHION’S NIGHT IN MILAN: The next edition of Milan Fashion’s Night Out will take place on Sept. 17, inaugurating Milan Women’s Fashion Week, slated for Sept. 18 to 23, according to Vogue Italia editor in chief Franca Sozzani.

“The Fashion’s Night Out will take place the day before the opening of the fashion week because we wanted to give access to the event to a larger number of people,” Sozzani said.

Sozzani added that during FNO the public will be able to get in touch with the upcoming designers who Vogue Italia selected to showcase their collections at the “Vogue Talents” exhibition, opening that night at Palazzo Morando.

Among the initiatives supporting new talents, a temporary store sponsored by Visa will allow the three winners of a talent contest organized by vogue.it to sell their collections during the FNO.

“On Sept. 18 we will start with a tight schedule of events especially dedicated to young designers, to make them feel part of the fashion industry,” said Sozzani, highlighting the “common effort of everybody [the different players of the Italian fashion industry, as well as Milan’s municipality] to team up not only to realize great events, but also to communicate them in a proper way.”

As part of the efforts to revamp Milan Fashion Week, on Sept. 18 the city’s municipality, along with the Italian Chamber of Fashion and Vogue Italia, will host a gala event at the La Scala theater, where the guests will be entertained with an opera concert.
