Pitti Immagine Uomo: Dates of Winter's edition
27 Mar. 2013
Pitti Immagine fixes next Winter's editionsThe Board of directors of Pitti Immagine has decided the upcoming Winter edition dates of Pitti Immagine Uomo for the years 2015-17. All three editions will begin 8th January.
The previous 2013 edition took place between 8th and 11th January, while the 2014 edition will take place between 7th and 10th January.
“The international calendar of menswear fashion has started facing huge changes due to the arrival of new subjects, and because of organizing mechanisms that have gone out of order. Once this has been fixed, the dates should run stably." commented Gaetano Marzotto, president, Pitti Immagine. “Already, from 2014, it has been a constant issue: that all events have been moved ahead by one week (Florence, Milan, Paris), in order that Pitti Uomo does not open directly after the end of Christmas holidays, avoiding the predictable inconvenience for exhibitors, set-up companies and buyers. As everyone knows, regarding 2014, this could not be managed, and we will open on 7th January. We therefore decided to organize dates three years in advance, in order to guarantee that the event be managed with serenity for all insiders participating in it. For the summer editions, instead, we will keep the same dates for June."
“During the last weeks - continues Marzotto - Pitti Immagine's management had confidentially informed the organizers of the London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks about the possibility of such a change."
