Alessandro Michele, the creative director of luxury fashion designer Gucci has announced his creative decision to unify his menswear and womenswear collections into one catwalk show. The first appearance of a merged-sexes fashion show will take place at Gucci’s Milan headquarters next year.
Michele explained the reasons for his idea and told the WWD, “It seems only natural to me to present my men’s and women’s collections together.” He then went on to describe his perception of the world and how he is looking forward to the challenges and opportunities of his new and refreshing fashion plans.
Fashion is also a way to express storytelling and the personality of the designer. So, Michele believes combining his collections will allow him to develop and illustrate a modern vision for the future of the fashion world and industry.
Last week at the New York Times International Luxury Conference the move was released by Marco Bizzarri, president and CEO of Gucci. Bizzarri announced, “moving to one show each season will significantly help to simplify many aspects of our business. Maintaining two separate, disconnected calendars has been a result of tradition rather than practicality.“
So, for now we will continue to enjoy what Gucci’s further collections have to offer this Summer, Fall and Winter. But Modelmanagement.com can’t wait to see the results of Michele’s new fashion designs that will unify the sexes in 2017!
