Welcome to Runway Matters, where we're delivering notes straight from the runway so you can quickly digest the most important trends and noteworthy moments from the F/W 18 shows.
On day two of an already exciting New York Fashion Week, I had the pleasure of attending Milly’s runway-style F/W 18 presentation. Despite relatively gloomy weather, designer Michelle Smith achieved the radiant and colorful vibe she set out for. With her rainbow color palette and a slew of vibrantly dressed influencers, the room was transformed from a blank canvas to an aesthetic wonderland. Simply keep reading for our breakdown of the four biggest must-know moments from the show.
The Color Scheme: Rainbow
From the signage to the looks to the set itself, the "chromatic" theme was omnipresent and impossible to ignore.
The Trend: Vibrant Monochromatic Dressing
If there's one styling tip to take away from the presentation, it's to choose a color and layer away.
The “Awww” Moment: Family First
For her brief appearance following the finale, designer Michelle Smith was accompanied by her adorable (an aptly dressed) daughter.
The Showstopper: Pink, Please
There's always a moment in a show or presentation when the whole room lets out a collective "ooh," and this was definitely it.
