Milan Fashion Week opens with Plus
Sept. 20th - Instead of the usual stick insect
thin models normally seen in top venues, women in Milan got a
treat yesterday by having real sized women open the Milan Fashion
The must-attend Milan event for spring/summer 2009 fashion opened
with the plus-size collection by Elena Miro, specifically designed
for women of average size and larger.
Miro's theme was garden party, with floral prints of camellia,
forget-me-not and peony.
Silk dresses fluttered gracefully below the knees; chiffon blouses,
which slipped down to reveal bared shoulders, were teamed with
bell-bottom trousers; and short-jackets and bustiers added finishing
touches to many outfits.
Accessories included gold clutch bags and jewellery, much of which
was bigger and 'clunky'.
