If there is one city in the world symbolizing fashion and design, that is certainly Milan. A unique city, which becomes a global capital when one of the most important weeks in the calendar of the Lombard metropolis approaches: the celebration of Salone del Mobile and Fuori Salone events, which will take place from April 12th to 17th and will host the choicest of the international scene in the interior design and industrial design sectors. Two events in 2016 that Inalco will enjoy not as spectators but for the first time as the main actors.
Milano is truly the land of fashion and trends, full of the spotlights and storefronts, a city always associated with great couturiers who succeed on the catwalks, from where they have conveyed to the city a design-oriented feel that is the main ingredient for the social growth of the town. Nowadays more than 3,600 clothing stores and about a thousand shoes and leather goods stores can be found today in Milan.
Giorgio Armani, Dolce Gabbana, Prada, Moschino and Versace are some of the fashion brands that have Milan as their outstanding headquarters, where trends coexist with a city full of history and art in every corner.
Walking by the Piazza del Duomo and see the world’s largest Gothic cathedral; explore its canals, recalling its navigable past with its system devised by Leonardo Da Vince; relax going shopping on the Quadrilatero d’Oro, the most exclusive shopping area of the city; or visit architect Cesar Pelli´s work, the Porta Nuova Garibaldi, the tallest building in Italy with 231 meters high; these are some of the unique plans offered by the capital of Lombardy.
For all this and much more, as April comes, Milan is always a destination that we associate with a week full of passion, art and professional discovery in the sectors of decoration and interior design. A city that inspires and recharge our batteries, a main turning point in the year thanks to its fashion and design. In the capital par excellence: Milano.
