“Let the best one win.” So says Mario Boselli head of the Italian Chamber of Fashion in response to news that Milan will keep their original fashion week dates next fall. This creates an overlap between New York and London, meaning like a child of a broken home, editors will have to pick which city they love more and which city they’ll see only on holidays and the occasional drunken weekend.

Fashion Week Just Got Ugly

New York Fashion Week will take place Sept. 13th-20th, followed directly by London from Sept. 21st-25th with Milan squeezed in between from Sept. 19th-25th.  “Italian designers unanimously agreed on the schedule,” continued Boselli, “from the smallest brand to the biggest. They showed great solidarity and Italian pride.”

To me that sounds like one big “Suck it.” The four fashion capitals have been at each others’ heavily bejeweled throats over their respective fashion week dates — well, three of them have. HBIC Paris is too busy shutting. It. Down to care. [WWD]
