NINETIES REDUX: In the youth-obsessed fashion industry, it’s rare to see a 90-year-old on the runway. But at the climax of the Missoni show on Sunday, Ottavio Missoni came out for a rousing victory lap with his designing daughter Angela. The knitwear guru, known as Tai, celebrated his big birthday earlier this month by publishing an autobiography with Rizzoli about his exploits in athletics and knitwear.
