Marni will show at New York Fashion Week this September, as part of a multi-season odyssey that will see the Milan house at different fashion weeks across the world.

Creative director Francesco Risso today revealed the surprise move is “about getting closer to our audience” in an exclusive interview with Vogue Business. “We have a very international crowd who come to us in Milan, and we can’t complain about that at all. But still there are a lot of people — people I am very focused on, Marni lovers who are deeply engaged with what we do — who miss out. So, we are going on tour.”

Its first stop will see Risso’s Spring Summer 2023 collection revealed at 9pm on 10 September, at a New York location — the designer declined to divulge the exact whereabouts for now: “We want to keep the surprise for a while longer.” Risso added that the show would be accompanied by a series of events and amplifications held in Marni’s three boutiques across the city. He said: “Friends of the house who might not necessarily be involved in the show, artists, will inhabit the spaces to represent the Italian-ness. I think it’s going to be very interesting to be there.”

Following news of Fendi’s one-off show to take place the previous day, Marni’s announcement strengthens what will be a refreshingly Italian-accented edition of the US’s leading fashion showcase. In an emailed comment, the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s CEO Steven Kolb said the organisation “is delighted to welcome Marni to New

BBNaija S7: Beauty reveals sexual encounters with Groovy following another heated argument with fellow housemate over Groovy

Big Brother Naija housemate, Beauty on Saturday engaged in another heated argument with fellow housemates over her displeasure with Groovy for dancing with Chomzy.

The aforesaid brawl raised concerns that Biggie may issue the ex-beauty queen a second strike, recall she got the first strike last week for physically attacking Ilebaye.

Beauty, who appeared to be intoxicated, body shamed and tongue lashed her love interest, Groovy.

She said Groovy’s dick is very small, and yelled at Phyna and other housemates who attempted to caution her.

This recent outburst if unchecked may earn Beauty another strike from Big Brother and eventually her eviction from the ‘Level up’ edition as it is against the rules of the reality house to engage in physical fight or use violence in the house.

Beauty who rained insults on Groovy after the Saturday party,  had earlier warned him to stay away from Chomzy.

“I told you to dance with every other girl except that girl, but even when I dragged her away from you, you gave her a high-five and she started laughing at me.

“Who are you? You want to embarrass me. I saw you wrapping your hands around her waist,” she said.

In defence, Groovy explained that he wasn’t dancing with her.

“She was the one that came to me. I didn’t go to her. She came to me and I didn’t dance with her,” he said.

Beauty, who was already thought to be intoxicated after the party, told her fellow housemates about her sexual relationship with Groovy.

She said, “He has sucked my breasts, fingered my vagina.”
