Paris fashion week will soon open in style, with an exhibit that puts impressionist art down the runway _ literally.
Italian Premier Mario Monti took a short culture break from promoting his package of austerity and growth measures to attend La Scala's gala season premiere of "Don Giovanni" on Wednesday _ a presence that La Scala's general manger hopes bodes well for the future of culture in the country that invented opera.
"It's over a century now," said Carsen. "But some things don't change. We're still as obsessed with fashion now as we were then."
"We wanted to show how lifelike and modern all the Impressionist fashions were," said Robert Carsen, the famed Canadian set designer who designed the exhibit.
