First Black Made in Italy live fashion show in the history of MFW.
Exactly two years ago in 2020, Stella Jean took a firm stance and stated she would not return to Milan Fashion Week until she was no longer the only Black Made in Italy designer on the official MFW schedule.
Since then, one has become WAMI -We Are Made in Italy.
Today WAMI is the largest and sole national collective and incubator comprised of multicultural Made in Italy, with all designers hailing from migratory backgrounds, representing and working toward the substantial multicultural transition of the Italian fashion sector with an acute focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
For the very first time during Milan Fashion Week, a LIVE fashion show featuring the largest number ever of representatives from Black Made in Italy on the same catwalk will take place.
A story of active social awareness that has now elevated to a system.
The show will be opened and closed by Stella Jean and Edward Buchanan, as the first pioneers of Black Made in Italy, proudly serve as mentors to the Talent of WAMI, who have been scouted by Michelle Ngonmo.
