Armani presents Eastern promise as Milan Fashion Week begins

Models sashayed down the catwalk in strong feminine designs which followed an East meets West theme with embroidered butterflies and other exotic insect motifs strewn across pastel hues.

Floaty chiffon sarong-style dresses were shown alongside low-slung skirts and beaded vests, while chic city separates, distinguished by trademark Armani simple cuts, were also on display.

For Italy's other godfather of fashion, Roberto Cavalli, bright and bold colours were the order of the day. Beading, animal prints, ruffles and statement neck pieces made up a vibrant collection for the youth-focused Just Cavalli label.

Also showing in Milan was Moschino's Cheap & Chic label, where silky oversized flower print smocks and shorts dominated the runway, combining femininity with a splash of colour.
