MILAN — There is a familiar talent back on Milan’s Fashion Week calendar — one that can be found in fashion textbooks. Romeo Gigli has designed a collection for the Italian brand Eggs, to be presented on Feb. 22 at the home of architect Stefano Giovannoni, old palazzo with an industrial look that will be strewn with carpets also designed by Gigli.
“There is no theme, but 13 evening dresses for 13 different women — the girl who becomes a woman and the woman who becomes a girl,” Gigli told WWD. The dresses are worn with coats, capes and other styles that can be assembled and mixed together.
Cosmetics entrepreneur Charlotte Tilbury came face to face with one of her inspirations when Queen Elizabeth handed her an MBE, or Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, at Buckingham Palace earlier today. #wwdbeauty
Stella McCartney has been designing wedding looks for years for customers, friends, family — and herself for years.
And now, leveraging the success of the dress she designed for the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding reception in May, McCartney is launching, Made with Love, a bridal line including eight dresses and an ivory tuxedo, reports @natalietheodosi . “I feel very protective over the bride, because I know what it was like when I got married, and for me to do my own wedding dress. There are moments that are so personal and private, so emotional and loaded with many different issues,” McCartney told WWD in an interview in June. “I think we are really blessed to have the emotional trust with a woman. She’ll come in and feel the love that we put into everything. What she chooses can be conventional or unconventional. It’s a personal experience.” #wwdnews
