Fashion Week Milan

Friday, September 23, 2011


It only took 2.2 seconds for Fashion Week to travel from New York all the way to Milan! With that said, those two weeks couldn't be more different. New York shows often showcase the wearable fashions of the season, while Milan busts out the Couture! Designers included Acne, Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane, Matthew Williamson, Mulberry, and my personal favorite, Sass and Bide. Brights were paired with pastels, ombre hair was everywhere, and polka dots were a huge hit! Most of the pieces were extremely feminine; comprised of skirts and gowns made with beautiful flowy materials. Sass and Bide stole the show with their vibrant use of color and clean geometric shapes. Any of our international fans hit up fashion week in Milan this year? Let us know!

I wish there was a plus size fashion week, or maybe a casual fashion week because although the outfits delight the eye they generally would look very out of place everywhere I go.

I love the colors but honestly the things that those fashion designers arent things that a regular working woman or mom would be able to wear.

Definitely loving the bright colors! However, not so fond of the designs,they should be more practical.

i absolutely loved the bright colors and bold prints for fashion week!! although some trends are a little crazy for every day i saw some really cute pieces i wanted to wear! i am really sporty but i still like clothes that are feminine and flowy to show off my girly side so i was very impressed and happy with most of what i saw

I would love to go to fashion week!!! I've been to Italy and it's gorgeous! Maybe one day I'll kill two birds with one stone and go back to Italy and see fashion week at Milan.

I haven't ever been to one of these shows, but would love to go see the one in New York! I love seeing the new fashions of the season, but don't know how I feel about all the haute couture designs showcased in Milan..wouldn't be against goin to Milan too though!

The colors and the creativity of the outfits are amazing. I love watching the models but the shows are not realistic. No woman is that size and no one would really wear those clothes. At least no middle class woman would wear the clothes. They aren't practical. I wish they would have more practical fashion shows.

Seeing as how normal people wouldn't be able to wear this, I could totally see nicki minaj or lady gaga rocking those outfits some sort of way.

Love the colors but like another people said, maybe it would be nicer to see more casual outfits that people would wear from a day to day bases.
