Milan, The Fashion Capital of Italy

As you probably know, Milan is one of the greatest cities in the world when it comes to design and fashion. Every year millions of Euros are spent preparing the new lines for the upcoming seasons.

As I write this, Milan is already hard at work on NEXT year's summer fashion lines.

What you may not know however is that Milan will regularly send fashion models out into the streets of cities like Catania to see how their experimental ideas for the season down the road will be received by the buying public.

Here are two examples of Milan's experimental designs for Summer 2009 that Laurie and I saw yesterday in the fish market and Duomo areas.

For Men

Traditional but still trendy! How do the fashion houses of Milan keep improving on sartorial splendor year after year?

Of course, you should have heard the reports the people in Milan received on the guy who introduced the flame-pattern board shorts to Sicily.

In the Italian fashion world it is ALL about thinking outside the box, pushing the envelope AND being on the cutting edge combined!
