While MRket, Project and Agenda were all happening down the hall, upstairs in the Javits’ sunlight-drenched pavilion, the debut U.S. edition of Italian textiles-accessories show Milano Unica was bustling, and rustling with the sounds of suit and shirting fabrics.
Accomplished with the support of the Ministry of Economic Development and a partnership with the Italian Trade Agency, the show drew such notable designers as Michael Bastian, Todd Snyder, Patrik Ervell and Mickey Drexler of J. Crew.
Among the 87 exhibitors were major Italian stalwarts including Loro Piana and Ermenegildo Zegna. The show’s next appointment in New York is scheduled for January 2016.
