While Asia and the U.S. are leading revenue growth, “in Europe, fortunately, we continue to have a very positive trend in terms of visitors,” Norsa said in an interview before the Florence, Italy-based company’s women’s fashion show in Milan today. “The performance is positive, even in Europe. China continues to grow strongly.”

“The year started very well,” Norsa said.
