Milan Fashion Week SS13

Fashion ecstasy continues on to Milan, Italy as we see designers transform their passion into works of art and trendsetting fashion. Here is a look at the trends forecast this city’s designers had to offer in their wares.

Fuchsia. While Pastels whispered on the runways of London Fashion Week, Fuchsia let out a glorious roar on the catwalks of Gucci, Ports 1961 and Versace.

Mini Hemlines. Models with legs for miles slunk down the runways of Emporio Armani, Moschino and Prada in the most deliciously short skirted dresses, lace and leather shorts and micro minis.

Flower Power. Flowers are very much in bloom and not in London. Flower power ruled the runways of Bottega Veneta, Trussardi and Antonio Marras  showing its staying power as a trend.
