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.

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.
