Leather, silk, and wool were a major part of Italy’s fashion making. Silk was first produced in Italy in the twelfth century. In the past, leather was used for only a few things, horses’ harnesses and scabbards for swords; today it is not only used for shoes, bags, belts, but also coats, luggage, briefcases, desks, accessories, and even hats. Since the middle ages, leather has been used by Italy’s

craftsmen to create objects of rare excellence. Workers weave, dye, card, design, and knit wool in all its forms and mix it with other fibers.


Fashion shows and things are great for business for Italian fashion. Journalists and buyers from all over the world travel to Milan many different times a year to go to specialized fashion shows. Fashion is a big business in Italy where famous designers such as Valentino and Armani thrive. The basis of the fashion world is made up of many small businesses that make clothing and accessories and can acclimate quickly to fashions latest trends.

everyday wear falls within a narrow range of conventional styles, unusual garments are usually sought for special occasions such as evening wear or party dresses. Some of the top fashion designers are Domenico Dolce, Stefano Gabbana, Gorgio Armani, Miyccia Prada, Valentino, Gianni, and Donatella Versace. Italy’s top designer brands are looking to China for salvation this year with revenues falling due to dept crisis that has cast an air of gloom as Milan fashion week kicks off. Valentino

They also have another festival all based on tomatoes where they eat tomatoes and really honor tomatoes because tomatoes are so big in Italy,


but they only do this in the summer because that’s the only time tomatoes grow.
