Milan Fashion Week’s reputation for hosting designers who celebrate their labels heritage while constantly reinventing and evolving has seen the event become an iconic part of the fashion calendar. This years’ event was no exception as Jil Sander, Emilio Pucci and MSGM experimented with electrifying colour schemes and runways were dominated by proportional play, voluminous silhouettes and redefined tailoring. The emergence of some fresh faces added to the excitement with showings from newcomers Angel Chen and Annakiki, and model Halima Aden walking for Alberta Ferretti and Max Mara.
The event concluded with a memorial Mass honouring the life and works of Italian Vogue Editor in Chief, Franca Sozzani who died in December. Held at Milan’s famous cathedral, designers, friends and colleagues gathered to pay tribute to one of fashion’s great icons.
