ARTSY WARDROBE: Anna Piaggi’s enormous fashion collection will find a new home in Milan. The city’s municipality has decided in collaboration with Piaggi’s family to create a permanent exhibition of the late Vogue Italia fashion editor’s clothing and accessories collection at Fabbrica Del Vapore, a postindustrial building used for cultural activities. The exhibition, which according to Milan’s culture councilor Stefano Boeri will represent the first step in the creation of a fashion museum, is expected to be open to the public during Milan Fashion Week later this month.

Experts from the London College of Fashion will organize the archives and will curate the exhibition alongside fashion students from Milano Fashion Institute in a partnership with the Italian Fashion Chamber. In addition, an organization will be established to communicate Piaggi’s legacy.

“It’s really fundamental to keep the collection in Milan and exalt it, because it represents a real gem of Italian cultural heritage,” said Boeri, who made a plea for financial support to develop the project.
