White, the Italian contemporary woman’s fashion show held between February 20th and February 23rd, 2020, in Milan at Superstudio Più and Tortona Area, has closed its last edition registering stable figures despite the coronavirus emergency that saw the cancellation of many events of 23 February and the low attendance of Chinese visitors.

The show registered among its visitors important buyers, both a return of Italian and a confirmation of foreign ones. They placed orders especially looking for small- and medium-size top-quality companies.



Among brands that recalled attention there were many international ones, like, for instance, Maison ARTC, the show’s special guest Moroccan designer who creates single-piece items by recycling unique handcrafted pieces from different cultures, countries and lifestyles.
