Elisabetta Esposito: A must on the catwalk: skirt above the knee, elegance, femininity, high heels, sometimes dizzy, floating fabrics that give movement, but also geometric lines that recall and revisit the 70's! Military jackets that are perfectly suited to women; fashion that is strong and determined in the 21st century!
Inevitable accessories: Luxurious, given by the jewelry designer or found at the shop of a craftsman or in any study of antiques.
The woman at the center of everything! Classic colors, ethnic patterns, furs, but also tartan — Scottish, for a woman who dares to wear red in all shades.
Fashion is a way of being; a way of speaking.
The sector has suffered from the global financial crisis in recent years. Let's see what we can expect in 2011. The forecast for next year presented by the OECD and European Commission refers to a 2011 heavily influenced by two factors: On the one hand the timing and the size of macro-economic slowdown is highly dependent on government policies in a context of consumer demand which is very uncertain. On the other hand is the development of exchange rates.
At this point, it is expected that the further weakening of the dollar in the last period will continue at least until mid-2011. In this framework, and with no further external shocks, growth in turnover for the fashion industry will continue in the first half of 2011 at a sustained rate close to 10 percent This will be particularly evident in the first quarter, with a more substantial slowdown in the second half within the clothing and accessories departments.
