According to reports, Capasa, president of the Italian National Fashion Association, said that Modnes has devoted his life to promoting the development of the Italian fashion industry, making it truly at the forefront of world fashion. Modnes built the Italian fashion brand system with wisdom, establishing the international status of Milan Fashion Capital and Milan Fashion Week. Modenis is well-deservedly praised by the industry as the “godfather of fashion” of Italy.
Modnes began to cooperate with Giorghini in Florence in the 1950s to develop the Italian fashion brand industry, and held its first Italian fashion show in Florence in the early 1950s. At that time, fashion products such as Italian fashion brands Emiliao Puqi and Roberto Capucci began to make their debut in the international fashion industry.
Modenis played an important role in the relocation of the focus of Italian fashion brands from Florence Beatty Palace to Milan. He persuaded and won the strong support of many fashion brand founders such as Missoni.
Modenis was one of the founders of the Italian National Fashion Association, which has been led by him for many years. During Modenis’s tenure at the association, Italian fashion shows were mainly concentrated in the Milan Convention Center.
On February 23, 2018, local time, at the Versace autumn and winter new products exhibition venue of Milan Fashion Week, Italy, models wore high-saturation, colorful clothes on the runway.
After Modenis founded Milan Fashion Week, he has made special contributions to supporting many Italian brands to go global. His life has been praised and praised by the fashion industry and politicians and business circles.
After Modenis’ death, Italian political and business circles and internationally renowned businessmen and fashion circles, as well as their friends during his lifetime, called or expressed condolences on Modenis’ death in different forms and expressed condolences to his family.
Former Italian Prime Minister Renzi expressed his condolences and highest respect for the death of Modenis through social media platforms, and praised Modenis as a gentleman who led and promoted Italian fashion goods to the world
