A very happening fashion week held in Milan 19th – 25th September 2018. There was pomp of showmanship and performances as well as a walk down memory lane as some of the 90’s supermodels walked the runway.

From Robbie William’s full concert at the Linate Airport to Fila’s debut walk of sportswear designs and all the designers’ showcase of splendid collections, the fashion week went full on astonishing everyone. A lot of old-school glamour was explored and experimented with and brought forward with reinventions.

Prada played its bold game with two opposites, Freedom and Conservation at the same time. There was a prominent show of tye-dye, as there is always when Muccia Prada is involved.

Dolce & Gabanna

Dolce & Gabanna played a family affair as they celebrated the brand’s DNA by walking their models, influencers, friends, clients, and many more in all shapes and sizes. A very power move with a brand as big as this.

It was a break from stereotypical baby faces walking the runway as many older faces were seen on the catwalk.

Versace closed the show with Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Carla Bruni who is also the former first lady of France. They paid tribute to the late Gianni Versace who was murdered 20 years ago. Lastly, Versace recorded her own spoken word tribute for her brother.

Max Mara

Max Mara revived a very 80’s style into their collection and managed to become the most popular brand for luxury coats and designer suiting. They now own one of the two most famous coats, the other being with Burberry.

The show had much more, Fendi being the leader in utility and sportswear, Sportmax being very vibrant,  Alberta Ferretti being soft coastal, Etro and Missoni being non-confrontational. The show had very accessible designs this time that can be worn every day easily.

New York Fashion Week:

The most diverse in terms of race, size, gender and age, fashion show this season was held in New York.

About half the women walking the runway were women of color, there were many of age above 50, and some were transgender as well. This is something that other Fashion weeks should look up to, making their fashion shows inclusive of all.

Rihanna Fenty

Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty featured not only women of all sizes and races but also two pregnant women walked down the runway which is a huge step in the fashion industry.

The theme very prominent amongst most designers including Tom Burch, Anna Sui, Michael Kors, Escada, and Oscar de la Renta was Wanderlust and escapism.

Many designers celebrated their American origin; by manufacturing every piece in either New York or California. It was an All-American affair and there were some hints to the on-going politics as well however nobody named their Leader in it.

Alexander Wang ditched the seasonal shows as he believes that their customers are all around the world and the seasonal collection is very limiting, which I agree with.

Tom Ford’s collection was very much inspired by animal prints having alligator fabric, leopard prints and silk dresses with blazers.

New York Fashion Week was very diverse in every sense and that is why I loved it.

Christian Dior’s collection revolved around the idea ‘fashion and dance define the body’ which took place at a racecourse on the outskirts of Paris. A Choreographer was invited who created an avant-garde dance performance around which the models would walk the runway. With that, the collection represented light and freedom. Tanks, light jumpsuits, long skirts, and silk dresses with floral and tie-dye prints were presented.
