The Milan Fashion Week made headlines this season and for all the right reasons. From Gucci and Moschino to Versace, each and every show had its own set of memorable moments. The designers whom we love not only showcased some of the best designs but also left us with so many iconic moments. Continue reading to know all about these iconic, unforgettable, runway moments.
JLO AND THE JUNGLE DRESS
The Versace show was graced by a special appearance from none other than Jennifer Lopez. Back in 2000, JLo wore the infamous Versace jungle dress for an award’s show as a last minute resort. The dress being too revealing was talk of the town for months after. It was also the triggering factor behind the invention of Google Images. At the Milan runway, Donatella Versace designed an all the more revealing version of the Jungle Dress that broke the internet once again.
MOSCHINO’S WEARABLE ART
For this season, conceptualisation for Jeremy Scott involved a lot more obsession and admiration for another artist – Picasso. Picasso’s illustrations were turned into beautifully-Moschino garments. The identity of the brand was very well reflected in the garments. Proving yet again that fun and quirky fashion can be intelligent too, Jeremy Scott for Moschino is here to stay.
GUCCI’S NEW BEAUTY STANDARDS
Gucci’s aesthetics always make headline and this fashion season was no exception. This time, more than the clothes, the accessories were the eye of the storm. Sunglasses with bulkier chains, is a trend that we can already see dominating the streets. Another iconic moment was when Alessandro Michele decided to replace eyebrows for eye-lashes. Yes, you heard right, who needs eyebrows when we got our eyelashes.
NEW REALMS OF ETHICS
Casadei, a brand known for its wonderful designs in footwear, collaborated with Ethical Fashion Initiative (EFI) to come up with a collection. The collection featured brilliant new designs that were colourful and full of texture. The collection includes four styles, using fabrics that were woven by the women of Burkina Faso – leading producers of African cotton.
