'Following the successful fair start-up that attracted the most renowned New York fashion brands, we are now focusing on top-end American brands from other geographic areas: California, Texas, Massachusetts/ Around sixty Italian exhibitors will present S/S 2017 collections at this edition, while maintaining the original format of entrance by invitation. The reduced number of exhibitors is due only to the different season. The main objective of the Tradeshow is to approach this market from every angle, aiming not only at traditional clients like big retailers or designers, but also new types of clients that show great potential in North America', explains Ercole Botto Poala, newly elected president of Milano Unica.

The New York edition will be enhanced by two novelties, the Trend Area and Synthesis Area.

The first, protagonist of an important part of the Fair experience, will present season trends according to conceptual and architectural planning elaborated by art director Stefano Fadda and his international team for the presentation held in Milan. These trends have guided the collections of participating exhibitors and will be useful to better understand and manage professional choices.
