Fashion Week in Milan
For all you fashion lovers out there, the Italian Concierge brings you a report on the recent Fashion Week in Milan, Italy. Milan Fashion Week, presenting the Spring 2016 collections, took place from Feb 24 to March 2.
Fashion bloggers and critics are reporting a season full of contradictions. From the dreamy fairy tale fashion presented by Dolce & Gabbana to the grunge romanticism at No.21, designers presented a variety of stylistic genres. Moschino stuck to its usual ostentatious style with show-stopping smoking dresses, while Jil Sander presented a line of minimalistic looks.
The eventful 2016 season underlined what many in the industry consider to be Milan's fashion renaissance. Italian born fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni, who has built an internationally recognized lifestyle platform, with nearly 6 million Instagram followers and a personal staff of 20, attended the show in her home country.
Describing what it was like to be back in Milan for fashion week, Ferragni told CNN, "I'm very proud to be here right now. It used to feel more like a small town but now it's getting way more international. [...] It's a time of change for Milano and it's for the better." The social media star's shoe line is now so popular that she will be opening a Chiara Ferragni Collection flagship store in Milan next year.
