Pitti Immagine’s women’s trade show organizers have changed their show dates to Mar. 1-3, 2009, thus shortening their fall editions by a day. All three fairs Touch!, neoZone and cloudnine will be located in Zona Tortona, the creative hub of Milan: Touch! and neoZone will take place in NHOW Hotel at Via Tortona 35, while cloudnine will be held in the neighborhood of Padiglione Visconti. “Displaying in the sophisticated, contemporary space of the NHOW Hotel helps to underline the style of the exhibited brands,” said Pitti’s CEO Agostino Poletto. Scouting internationally, the Pitti team chose 140 collections and expects to draw 6,000 top buyers. As a highlight, Boglioli’s brand new women’s line will make its debut with a special event installation by Nicola Quadri. The young Milanese brand Pierre Ancy will also be presenting its first collection called “State of Mind.” Parisian photographer Martine Fougeron, winner of the Pitti Immagine Photo Award, will also exhibit her work this season.
