Show Conflict

Diane Von Furstenberg, the president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, has proposed to Mario Boselli - president of Milan's governing fashion body, the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana - that New York "bite the bullet" next year and move its dates earlier, in exchange for a formal agreement about 2013 and beyond.
"We have to protect the industry," Von Furstenberg said, the New York Times reports. "To give jobs is the number one responsibility for anyone today, and that's what we have to realise."
Whilst Boselli is reportedly considering the offer, such a move wouldn't benefit London Fashion Week - the dates of which overlap with Milan in its entirety.
