Milan collections kick off with Gucci and Alberta Ferretti

With New York and London collections behind us, we now look forward to the polished glamour of Milan. A decidedly different aesthetic prevails with Gucci, Alberta Ferretti and Francesco Scognamiglio beginning the Milan season today.

Our live coverage of Milan kicks off with the Gucci live panel, chaired by fashion journalist, Caryn Franklin. Some live panel discussions scheduled for the next few days include Fendi, Prada, Versace and Bottega Veneta. 

Our new illustrator Fiona Gourlay also takes up residence at SHOWstudio to interpret the best of Milan’s offerings which will include Dolce and Gabbana, Moschino and Trussardi. 

To coincide with the anticipation of each show, our collections pages convey the backstage and front row activity via Instagrams and tweets from those attending. It's all rounded off with catwalk photos from our partners NOWFASHION, and Lou Stoppard's instructive show reports. 

Make sure to tune in at 13:00 GMT for the Gucci live panel. Visit the collections page for our comprehensive collections coverage.
