ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Milan kicked off its leg of the spring/summer 2016 catwalk shows on Wednesday (September 23) with designers presenting rich, embellished collections amid expectations of growing sales. After New York and London, Italy's fashion capital picks up the baton with six days of shows and presentations that will showcase the latest offerings from global brands such as Giorgio Armani, Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci and Versace. Among the first to show their creations were Italian fashion brands Genny and Fay. Genny creative director Sara Cavazza Facchini mixed art deco shapes with 1980s metallics for her line of dresses, wide-leg trouser suits and jumpsuits. Models wore fluid silk dresses and tunics with slit sleeves which revealed shoulders and arms falling into embroidered wrists. Cavazza Facchini said she was inspired by artist Sonia Delaunay, known for her use of vibrant colors and geometric shapes, for her patterned evening dresses. The shows are set against an upbeat mood among Italy's fashion sector. The national chamber of fashion has forecast a five percent rise in fashion industry sales this year to 64.5 billion euros ($72.06 billion).
