Milano Unica is an international textile exhibition held twice a year in the setting of Rho fairground; which conjures up the latest trends in textile and innovative fabrics born from a mix of experience, fine quality and tradition. This event exhibits products like prestigious menswear fabrics to exclusive women’s collections, from avant-garde fabrics and accessories to modern and classic shirting fabrics in the lifestyle & fashion industry.
The February 2020 fair marking its 30th edition, introduced the latest trends in fabrics for the Spring/Summer 2021 season, displaying top-quality products from both Italian and European textile manufacturers. It took place from February 4 – 6, 2020.
The CEO of Glitz Africa and founder of the annual Glitz Africa Fashion Week, Claudia Lumor participated in this year’s February fair along with two of Ghana’s finest designers Nelly Hagan-Aboagye (creative director of Duaba Serwa brand) and Aisha Ayensu (label creator of Christie Brown brand). Designers from Nigeria with the likes of Mai Atafo and Bubu Ogisi were also present at the event.
Featuring the participation of over 6,000 factories and manufacturers, Milano Unica reconfirmed itself as one of the worldwide leading fairs in textile and fashion, also thanks to important innovations such as the MU Sustainable Innovation project, analysing the relationship between style and sustainability.
Glitz Africa has partnered with The Italian Foreign Trade Agency (ICE) headed by the West Africa Director Alessandro Gerbino, so as to provide local designers the opportunity to experience the exhibition and network with fabric manufacturers in the global fashion industry.
The second fair for this year will take place from Tuesday, July 7, 2020 to Thursday, July 9, 2020.
