Two weeks ago I gave you a sneak peak of some of my favorites looks in my Highlights from Milan Fashion Week but the Laura Biagiotti show was arguably the best one I went to. Not only was it on the official schedule (denoting a big brand) but it was a designer with decades of history. And if that was not enough, the venue was absolutely stunning. When you Google the Piccolo Teatro Studio Melato the venue space is described as a studio in the performing arts complex hosting a range of events from experimental dance & flamenco to classic drama. And in this case, the Laura Biagiotti Milan Fashion Week show.
A few days before the show I had known from my RSVP I was “”balcony” seating as as that was not a fixed location I arrived nearly 30 minutes early to the venue. This is extra early in the world of fashion as shows do not start on time (you may recall my post on that here). So even though it was only half an hour before the posted start time, it was nearly an hour before the show began. However, I made the most of my time taking pictures of the outside, the step and repeat, the runway setup, and more. Then I snagged a prime seat on the first balcony (there were three) but also take some photos pre-show. The collection was bright, bouncy, and quite feminine – nearly all of the models walked down with a big bow in their hair! As the designer and the founder of the House of Biagiotti passed away in May 2017 this collection kept the same theme as the February 2019 show where the current designer, Lavinia Biagiotti, used the logo her mother trademarked in may different ways. Take a look:
As you will see in the last photo above the Laura Biagiotti Milan Fashion Week ended with model Anna Cleveland (who wore the first and last looks), escorting designer Lavinia Biagiotti down the runway for her bow to thunderous and standing applause. To say it was an incredible show is an understatement and I can not wait for next season!
