Milan fashion week saw a shift in style preferences, as Italy went through change in the prime ministerial office and it's policy on taxation. The new government's policy of fighting tax evasion has shown its effects in the form of the slowing demand for high end cars, clothes and jewelry, as rich Italian families curtail expenses to avoid detection for tax evasion.
As such, this first fashion week after the change in government, is reflecting in the designers' collections, the shift in national outlook.
