Welcome to the Milano Fashion Week

Welcome to the Milano fashion week!
This week at Milano 78 designers will show their spring/summer 2011 collections. This year the catwalks will take place in the centre of the city moving from Milano Fiera to Loggia dei Mercanti, Palazzo Clerici and il Circolo filologico.
It's a new edition that will not allow the magazine's directors rule the calendar. Last year Anna Wintour forced big designers to rearrange the show calendar to allow her be in the front row.
The director of Vogue would like The Milan Fashion Week be a long weekend.
The pictured you see above are from Gucci Spring 2011 collection.
Some gossip: Elena Mirò, designer of curvy women has been excluded from the official calendar.
The official reason is that her brand is not as famous as others and don't represent Italy in the World, but others say her curvy models are not welcome. Size over 44 don't represent prêt-à-porter. That's a really different opinion compared to last year where Elena Mirò opened the week making a statement against anorexia.
This year Elena Mirò collection is inspired by the fifthies when women's curves were en vogue.
