HOMI Fashion&Jewels, which runs until September 20 at the Milan fair, is a leading European showcase for the latest fashion jewellery designs.

Author and professor Alba Cappellieri said the exhibition covers three themes – rites, materials and symbols – and is perfectly timed as in-person trade shows kick off again, with consumer tastes clearly pointing to talismans and amulets due to a greater desire for meaningful gifts owing to the pandemic.
