Milan Fashion Week started with the bright Fall-Winter 2011 collection of Gucci

on Friday, February 25, 2011

Gucci designer Frida Giannini cited flame-haired songstress Florence Welch as the inspiration for her sexy fall collection, which opened fashion week in Milan on Wednesday.
The fashion show began with a bold palette of emerald green, fuchsia, purple, teal and rust, colors that only a strong, and confident woman would wear.

For those who do not like new, "color" trend, the designer offers outfits in classic black and white, seasoned with muted, autumnal colors. Of course, the trendy polka dots are here to stay with us through the fall.

The evening dresses at Gucci are skin-baring, with slits up to the hem on long, fluid gowns or sexily sheer looks. The fabrics are light, catching every movement of the body, showing the legs.

Milan Fashion Week will continue until 1 March with the collections of D&G, Roberto Cavalli and Versus.
