WHILE Lucire has typically covered New York and London fashion weeks in more depth, Milano has been a different kettle of fish, usually dependent on contacts and budgets.

Thomaz, one of the very talented photographers we have come into contact with over the years, has been attending the collections, shooting, for starters, Frankie Morello’s autumn–winter 2009–10 collection.

After all, history has shown that no matter how hard times get, there’ll always be people who want to look great and are willing to fork out for the latest collections. It came as Roberto Cavalli cancelled his presentation and Armani went jittery over retail sales—but it’s times like this when less known designers can capitalize on their flatter management structures and forge ahead.
