The judges are Alexander Wang; Colleen Sherin, senior fashion director of Saks Fifth Avenue; Malcolm Carfrae, executive vice president, global communications of Calvin Klein Inc.; Stefano Tonchi, editor in chief of W; Steven Kolb, chief executive officer of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and Vanessa Friedman, fashion editor of the Financial Times.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
