Anna Wintour Caused a Scheduling Ruckus for Milan Fashion Week

>> Milan Fashion Week, which was officially scheduled to run Feb. 24 to March 1 this year, was almost compressed into three days after Italian fashion houses scrambled to coincide with Anna Wintour's schedule. "Anna Wintour, the woman who holds Italian fashion in the palm of her hand," read the headline of Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

Wintour will only be in Milan from Feb. 26 through 28 (reportedly because she's going to France for Paris Fashion Week and then flying to Los Angeles for the Oscars on March 7). "She wants designers to schedule their shows during these three days," Mario Boselli, president of the Italian Fashion Chamber, told the Telegraph UK. "She's welcome in Milan but if she only comes for a fleeting visit, perhaps it would be better is she stayed at home."

Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Fendi, and Giorgio Armani, who were all schedule to show at the end of Fashion Week wanted to changed dates, according to Boselli.  But this morning, WWD reported that Prada, which was originally scheduled for Feb. 26, and Fendi, which was originally showing on Feb. 27, each opted to show on Feb. 25 instead.
