MILANO - Fashion Week
Back in Milan for the Spring/Summer 2007 fashion shows. The billboard above, I Lav Milan! (lav is short for lavare, to wash), is an invitation for volunteers to help wash away the graffiti from three hundred buildings. Giorgio Armani told the Corriere della Sera "The graffiti artists that dirty the walls should be arrested. In Milan there is too much neglect, we have to re-establish an international dimension." Whilst, Elio Fiorucci is on Armani's side, veteran international superstar designer, Ettore Sottsass said "The graffitis' are a reaction of the young. They don't care about culture today and they probably can't even afford to buy themselves an Armani suit."
