MILAN FASHION PHOTOS: Feben, Rave Review promote looks for women of all shapes, ages and sizes

London-based designer Feben opened the last day of Milan Fashion Week with a refreshingly diverse runway in every way, both in size and race. “I think why you are not seeing that around is because you are not seeing a lot of Black women in creative roles,” said the designer, who is originally from Ethiopia and grew up in Sweden. Her latest collection was sponsored by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana as part of their ongoing program to support young talent. “Obviously because I want to feel seen, and I think everyone should feel seen no matter what body type or what skin color they have. And I think it is really important to have more people on board who are from different parts of the world. And I think that makes a huge difference," Feben said, adding that the fashion world shouldn't shy away from conversations around such issues. “There is nothing wrong with issues. We just have to find a solution.” Highlights from the last day Sunday of Milan Fashion Week of mostly...

MILAN FASHION PHOTOS: Ferragamo, Dolce&Gabbana conceal and reveal, balance transparency with cover

While the fashion industry discusses size diversity from time to time, there was little evidence of real evolution on the Milan runway this season. On Saturday, Paloma Elsesser walked Ferragamo in a satin plunge-neck cocktail dress, and Dolce&Gabbana included models of normal size. But the thinness of some models was a topic of pre-show chatter. Ashley Graham, who sat in the front row of Dolce&Gabbana, as recently as the September shows, lamented how often she is the only larger model on runways. Some highlights from the fourth day of Milan Fashion Week, mostly womenswear previews for fall-winter 2024-25. FERRAGAMO’S FREE SPIRIT Maximilian Davis’ Ferragamo collection both conceals and reveals, with oversized masculine woolen overcoats covering wispy, transparent embroidered dresses. It is the freedom to choose who sees what. The designer, in his third winter seasons at the Florence-based family-run fashion house, took inspiration from the 1920s Prohibition era, when a U.S....

MILAN FASHION PHOTOS: Gucci sparkles as De Sarno hits stride

The fashion crowd traversed Milan countless times on the third day of fashion week Friday, defying rain, traffic tie-ups and a local transport strike all in the name of the next big trend. By late afternoon, shows were running a full hour late as the fleet of black sedans, shuttles and taxis couldn’t keep up the runway pace. Donatella Versace put the world back to rights, starting her evening show right on time. Here are some highlights from Friday’s shows of mostly womenswear previews for Fall-Winter 2024-25. GUCCI SPARKLES Sabato De Sarno added just a little sparkle to his second Gucci womenswear collection as he continued to build fashion house’s new codes. Apparently simple silhouettes like a belted coat, an apron romper and plunging neck-line tunic project sexiness and power, showing off a bit of leg and the season’s new equestrian boot that rises just above the knee. Long outerwear, worn over short-shorts and simple corsets, are decorated with sequins and crystal beading...

MILAN FASHION PHOTOS: From Emporio Armani to Max Mara, designers are cocooning for next winter

If there is one theme emerging at Milan Fashion Week, it is cocooning, hunkering down, enveloping one’s self in comfort clothing. No one is mentioning the wars and political divisions cleaving the globe, but it's clear that if they aren't in the forefront of designers’ minds, the drive for self-protection is a subliminal part of the Zeitgeist. Here are some highlights from mostly womenswear previews for fall-winter 2024-25 on Thursday, the second day of Milan Fashion Week: STARRY NIGHTS AT EMPORIO ARMANI Outside it poured rain. Inside the Emporio Armani showroom, models delighted in a dusting of (fake) snow, some twirling down the runway with umbrellas aloft. Giorgio Armani said he instructed models to smile. “And it worked!” he told reporters after the runway show. The Emporio Armani collection for youthful dressers projected a sense of fun-loving frivolity, easy-to-wear day-to-day looks for women of all ages. Jackets were soft, sometimes layered. A shearling coat opened...

MILAN FASHION WEEK PHOTOS: Fendi, Del Core, Marras envelop women in protective garb for next winter

An anti-fur protester crashed the Fendi runway show Wednesday during the first day of Milan Fashion Week of mostly womenswear previews for Fall-Winter 2024-25. The PETA activist jumped into the models’ finale holding up a sign that read “Animals are not clothing,” before being whisked away by security. The animal rights group is pressuring Fendi to join other global fashion brands that have agreed to use synthetic alternatives to real fur. Fendi was born nearly a century ago as a fur and leather shop in Rome, and fur remains a core part of the brand’s DNA, even if featured a bit less on their runway shows in recent years. Some highlights from Wednesday’s shows: FENDI’S UTILITARIAN LOOKS Kim Jones created utilitarian looks in a somber palette for Fendi's next cold-weather season, with a twist.
