galleria vittorio emaunelle milan, interiorFrom September 21rst to the 27th the well known Italian designers showed us in Milan their ideas and creations for the SS2017. Milan is the heart of the Italian fashion industry, the famous Made in Italy and many legendary names have there their headquarters. Helena’s Boudoir was also there with a non stop feed on our facebook page.

The runways

We watched the shows of Gucci, Max Mara, Fendi, Prada, Versace, Blugirl, Tod’s, Emporio Armani, Giorgio Armani, Moschino, Roberto Cavalli, Emilio Pucci, Les Copains, Etro, Bottega Veneta, Dsquared2, Marni, Trussardi, Dolce & Gabbana, Missoni, Ferragamo and many others.

What made Milan fashion week special, except the spectacular clothes, was the fact that many supermodels made a powerful comeback.

Designers like Prada, Bottega Veneta and Versace went all out featuring appearances of some of the biggest names in the modelling industry including Naomi Campbell, Adriana Lima, Dutzen Kroes and Lauren Hutton, turning this fashion week into a celebration of women of all ages.

Elle and Harper’s Bazaar show us the best runway looks and Vogue selects the 8 best shows. We are not surprised seeing the big names of Versace, Prada, Gucci, Fendi and Dolce&Gabbana among them!

Street Style

Street style in Milan is always at its best. Many young models make their debut appearances in MFW’s runways and they also want to impress everyone with their off duty style.

Vogue’s famous photographer Phil Oh’ captures every aspect of Milan’s street style!

The Accessories

Italians are also pioneers in accessories, that is bags, shoes, belts, sunglasses and jewellery. Italians make and all the others copy. In Milan they established the accessories we are going to wear in SS2017.

Helena’s Boudoir reports from New York Fashion Week September 2016

new york city photoA fashion week is a fashion industry event, which lasts for a week and allows fashion designers, brands or “houses” to display their latest collections in runway shows and buyers and the media to take a look at the latest trends. Most importantly, these events let the industry know what’s “in” and what’s “out” for the season.

September is a fashion week full month. New York fashion week is the first one and started on September 7th and lasted until September 14th 2016. During NYFW we saw all the new collections and fashion trends for SS2017! For those of you who follow my facebook page, there was a day by day, designer by designer and city by city report!

The Runways

Although many brands experimented with a “see-now-buy-now” format this season – Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Thakoon and Tommy Hilfiger being among them – the vast majority still did thing the old fashioned way, presenting their SS 2017 collections.

We watched the runway shows form Victoria Beckham, Vera Wang, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Alexander Wang, Coach, Tom Ford, Zac Posen, Narciso Rodriguez, Tory Burch, Desigual, Lacoste, DKNY, Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein, Escada, Custo Barcelona, Kate Spade, Jenny Packham (the favourite designers of the Duchess of Cambridge), Diane von Fustenberg, Marc Jacobs and many others.

Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue show us the best runway looks.

Street style

When it comes to fashion week, designers might be showing off the latest looks for spring 2017 on the runways, but there are plenty of notable fashion moments happening on the streets where the buyers, the bloggers and the celebrities attending the shows present all the must see styles themselves. This is what we call “street style” and it is as important as the runway shows.

Vogue’s photographer Phil Oh’ is a master on capturing all the street styles, so why don’t you have a look at his photos and be inspired for your next look?

The street style of the celebrities attending the shows is also worth looking. Victoria Beckham’s looks are among the best!
