Missoni have confirmed that their forthcoming autumn/winter 2013 menswear show will go ahead this Sunday in Milan, despite the continuing search for missing family member and marketing director Vittorio Missoni.
The company made the decision to press ahead with the show despite the family's circumstances "in order to give continuity", reports WWD . It is assumed that none of the Missoni family, including Vittorio's creative director sister Angela and his founder parents Ottavio and Rosita, will be present.
The 58 year-old was returning from a holiday on the Venezuelan island of Los Roques with his partner, Maurizia Castiglioni, two friends and two crew members when the plane they were travelling on disappeared. Searches by the Venezuelan authorities continue, but as yet no trace of the aircraft or its passengers has been found.
