It's turning into a fashion week fight to the death between New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Last week, Milan's Camera Nazionale della Moda scheduled its September 2012 shows to overlap New York's and London's fashion weeks, and Paris followed suit. Yesterday, New York's CFDA released at statement accusing Milan of breaching a 2008 international agreement. Today, Milan throws it back in their faces: “Let the best one win,” Camera Moda head Mario Boselli told WWD. “Italian designers unanimously agreed on the schedule, from the smallest brand to the biggest. They showed great solidarity and Italian pride.” [WWD]
