Just Cavalli Spring ’08 RTW

If you remember, last September Milan tried a four-day Fashion Week which nearly killed many in the industry. It seemed every fashion editor had some choice words for the organizers. The four-day affair created
havoc and traffic congestion around the city. Retailers were frustrated because the truncated week did not allow them to make
showroom appointments between shows. Good news! The organizers have heeded. The Italian
Chamber of Fashion has slated the Fall Milan Fashion Week schedule to run February 16 to 23.

According to WWD, it began with Giorgio Armani’s
decision weeks ago to schedule his Emporio show on Sunday, February 17,
spurred other houses to show that day. Jil Sander and Missoni are now
also set for Sunday, with two shows each. Since less international
brands are set to show February 16 and the following Saturday, Mario
Boselli, head of the Chamber, said he was pleased with the calendar.
"We have so many companies that want to show on those days that we can
barely accommodate them," he said.

Giorgio Armani, Just
Cavalli, Pringle, Burberry, Alberta Ferretti and Gianfranco Ferré
slated for February 18, with Armani and Ferré holding two shows each.
Prada, also with two shows, Bottega Veneta, Salvatore Ferragamo, 6267,
Blumarine, Marni and Etro
are scheduled for February 19.

Cavalli, Gucci, with two shows, and Krizia
will show on February 20,
followed the next day (February 21) by DSquared2, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Luisa
Beccaria, MaxMara and Versace
. Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and Versace
will each hold two shows.

    Shoppers! Let the word go forth: Suarez’ new generation has moved their fine selections of handbags, shoes, and accessories to a new location.
    As always, you will find all the favorites from Kelly bags to “Hobos”, in the widest and “wildest” range of colors and sizes, as well as the latest “gotta have” styles in exotic skins. And of course all at the great values you have come to expect.!
    Suarez is now located at 5 West 56th Street, NY 10019, Just off Fifth Avenue.
