Milano Moda Donna Fall 2011
Dates: Feb 23 – Mar 1, 2011
MILAN, Feb 22, 2011 / FW/ — In more ways than one, this feels like our return season to Milan. Though we have never actually left and there is always a correspondent covering for us, Fall 2011 marked the return of our team in the Italian fashion and design capital.
For three years, we only saw glimpses; a bird’s eye view… Now, we are once again taking the city in – it’s sight and sound, including the smell of expensive Italian leather.
Milan is a very old city; founded by the Celtic and captured by Romans in 222 BC, becoming the capital of the Western Roman Empire from 286 BC to 402 AD.
