ORDRE curates a cheat sheet of the multi-label showrooms that shouldn’t be missed this season.

Dominated by long-established fashion houses, Milan Fashion Week is often counted as the business rendezvous for some of the world’s largest power buyers. But like every season, navigating a full schedule of big brand shows, along with a handful of presentations and showrooms scattered across the city, it is no easy feat.

To help shrink the woes of fashion week-goers this season, ORDRE provides a comprehensive list of the very best multi-brand showrooms in the city and where to find them.
