Firstly huge apologies for the delay in posting. During London Fashion Week I had the opportunity of attending lots of shows and parties / launches that I am desperate to tell you all about but first I wanted to get something online about Milan Fashion Week.
Launching last Wednesday – the same day as London Fashion Week showed its menswear collections – a large list of both international and Italian fashion designers were all set to show. First up was Gucci who sent social networking site Twitter into a storm as editors alike tweeted about the fabulous plum carpet that was set up for models to walk down. The colourful flooring however did take reference from the collection with a nod to military style coats with brass buttons and a selection of velvet that was used throughout on skirts, dresses, trousers and all-in-ones.
Evening wear was the pinnacle of the range where designer Frida Giannini worked her theme of modern day romanticism. Dresses flowed eloquently as models store down the catwalk in Oscar worthy gowns leaving sheer fabrics flowing behind them and ruffles and floral appliqués swathed across.
With a black, berry, purple and green palette there was something for everyone and not forgetting the winter theme Giannini also threw in a few oversized (expensive looking) fur coats just for good measure.
