Archiproducts Milano among the four locations of the fashion trade show: from Fiorucci, A.F. Vandevorst and Modefabriek pop-up stores, The Belgian Focus selection and a special consultancy service for retailers, here’s how via Tortona 31 is gearing up for the event

 

As the WHITE Show fast approaches, the Tortona design district is gearing up to host the fair’s upcoming edition. From September 21 to 24, Milan will be once again the perfect background for one of the unmissable events in fashion, and buyers are ready to attend and discover the latest in womenswear. Archiproducts Milano will be – for the first time – among the 4 official locations of the event, that this year counts 564 brands, establishing itself as a launching pad for niche brands, emerging talents and labels interested in the easy-to-buy market. For the occasion, Tortona 31 will wear its best dress to offer a unique Archiproducts Experience, a sensorial path including the Fiorucci and A.F. Vandevorst pop-up stores and The Belgian Focus and Modefabriek emerging designers.

Fiorucci is more than a fashion brand. It’s an Italian story, that began in Milan in 1967, when Elio Fiorucci was defined the “champion of democratic fashion”. 31 years later, Fiorucci is back: the label was named Special Guest of this fair’s September edition and is ready to steal the show with an exclusive pop-up store at the Archiproducts Milano ground floor. Here buyers and press will have the chance to purchase items from the brand’s Autumn/Winter 2018 collection, played on brilliant holographic fabrics, jersey, vinyl, denim t-shirts and oversize sweatshirts. The iconic fashion brand and the phygital innovative experience provided by Archiproducts are two all-Italian realities that meet for the first time, offering an insight on art, fashion and design.
