atmosfera-white-man-womanWHITE, the contemporary fashion tradeshow of the Milan City Council, has always been a reference point for menswear and previews of women’s collections. Visitor figures reflect the good direction taken by the tradeshow which, in January 2017, reached almost 10-thousand visitors (+18% overseas buyers), while Italian footfall remained relatively unvaried. In the spotlight: 270 brands, with 197 women’s collections, of which 63 were in the ONLY WOMAN area.

“The notable results achieved by this year’s tradeshow demonstrate that we are heading in the right direction and drive us to do more and increasingly better things. The significant increase in overseas buyers is the result of a strategy, in collaboration with ICE – Agency, to promote the event through a successful international roadshow”

declared Massimiliano Bizzi, Founder and President of WHITE.
