We highlight five new faces to grace the calendar for Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018.
Jil Sander has recently acquired two new creative directors Lucie and Luke Meier.
She, Swiss born, studied fashion and marketing in Florence before occupying key positions at Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga and Dior. He, Canadian born, initially studied economics in the US before moving to New York to study fashion design at FIT.
What Jil Sander aims for is a modern new look. The duo are expected to interpret emerging trends on the catwalk. They will debut their first men’s and women’s wear collection on Saturday the 23rd at 6pm.
Well known France-based designer Peet Dullaert will appear in Vogue Italia x Swarovski’s “Who Is On Next?” event at Palazzo Morando. (On display for the public September 23rd – 25th)
The freshest face at Milan Fashion Week belongs to Zeynep Guntas who landed a feature at Milan’s CNMI Fashion Hub.
The young designer moved to Milan for her Masters in Fashion Design at Domus Academy. After graduating, she put her own name to her brand, drawing inspiration from the experiences of the younger generation.
Also new to CNMI’s Fashion Hub is Manfredi Conti Manara. Born in Munich he graduated from the London College of Fashion and launched his first shoe collection in 2016. The new collection is a homage to femininity, inspired by the icing used in elegant patisseries and the latticework on the Hawa Mahal in Jaipur.
