Highlights from Milan Fashion Week SS19

Two weeks into the fashion month, and every fashion lover already has their jaws dropped. Milan fashion week was full of special and memorable moments that you shouldn’t miss, and we’ve got you covered anyway!

  • Diversity at its finest!

We can’t deny that the fashion industry has been changing a lot regarding diversity and equality in the past few years. Only 27% of the cast models were non-white last season, however, the number has had a noticeable increase.

In the Philipp Plein SS19 show at Milan, not only half of his cast were models of color, he also included hijab-wearing model Halima Aden, which isn’t her very first runway debut.

Also, the High-Fashion brand Prada which has been accused for their lack of diversity of models in both shows and campaigns, slammed back the accusations with the opening by Sudanese model Anok Yai. She is the first black model to have opened a Prada show since Naomi Campbell almost 20 years ago.

  • Versace embraces powerful women.

When wasn’t Donatella empowering women through her collections and shows? The collection was made of modern glamour, perfectly fitting the current moment of a strong unashamed woman. To add to the perfection, 90s supermodel closed Versace’s SS19 show after not hitting the runway for almost six years. Epic!

  • Moschino doing its thing again.

Jeremy Scott choosing his unfamiliar designs on every Moschino runway is no surprise to anyone. This time he chose an “unfinished” collection, with colored markers on all dresses and tights. Where else would we watch Gigi Hadid closing the show in a wedding dress surrounded by floating butterflies on tights with pen strokes? Only in Scott’s sketchbook!

Milan is over, but the fashion month hasn’t been to an end yet. We still got lots of couture to figure out in Paris! So what’s next, fashion lovers?
