Milan Fashion Club
During one of the world’s most prestigious fashion events, another young and – a bit – rebellious event takes place: Milan Fashion Club. The club focuses on emerging designers and young, creative talent. Milan Fashion Club is organized by Blank, a Milan-based agency with several years of experience in organizing fashion events in Milan.
Everyone who cares about provocative, sustainable and independent fashion should either be there, or be square.
Blank aims to create unforgettable experiences for every fashion lover, while giving young talent the opportunity to express themselves. How will the new generation of fashion designers shape the fashion industry? What will this industry look like within 10 years? While not providing definite answers, the selected designers do provide a peek into the future of fashion. Everyone who cares about provocative, sustainable and independent fashion should either be there, or be square.

The great deal about Milan Fashion Club is twofold. On the one hand, the event paves the way for worldwide upcoming designers. On the other hand, the Club creates an atmosphere for true fashion junkies to discover new brands, making Milan Fashion Week more accessible for many. Elif Resitoglu – creative director of the Club – adds: “You are living in one of the most important fashion capitals and not enjoying the fashion week? As Milan Fashion Club we are thrilled by the idea of creating a community of fashion lovers with the same vision, who likes to experiment together and celebrate fashion in all its forms.” Overall, MFC democratizes the Milanese fashion industry.

MFC hosts some pretty cool emerging fashion brands. Like Ambra Castello, who reproduces each piece chosen from the catalog according to customer needs. With this way of working, she goes against mass- and overproduction.
Fatima Ropero, on the other hand, highlights versatility with her collections. With her motto “No doors, no limits”, she conquers the world.
Next, we have Urban Rains, ATBEIRUT, Elisa Parpinelli and Lobos, who all base their work on arts and crafts. The brand WeDú somehow merges modernity with traditionalism. African heritage plays an important role in his non-binary creations. On top of this, a part of the profits are donated to support LGBTQ+ charities.
At last, AASSTTIINN is a young designers collective, located in Tehran and born from the need of unifying Iranian designers and fashion lovers from all over the world.
As you might notice, MFC has created a program full of talent of all sorts and kinds. Therefore, it’s a must go if you’re a true fashion lover visiting Milan Fashion Week.
