Editor's Diary: What happened in Milan Fashion Week

Our fashion editor Jeffrey shares his Milan Fashion Week adventures in photos right here.

After our managing editor's New York Fashion Week diary, we now jet off to Italy with our fashion editor Jeffrey Yan who ventured out to catch all the Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017 shows.

From the colourful invites and kaleidoscope-esque Gucci show to meeting Hari Nef and chilling out at Prada's teenage room inspired set, Jeffrey will now transport you behind the scenes to his favourite moments of the week.

"It's always a thrill unwrapping the invites. This season's standouts include Prada's handwritten note in a personalized box and Gucci's vinyl record."
"The first show of the season was the newly co-ed Gucci show with almost 120 stunning looks."

"My camera roll after the Gucci show. It was a gorgeous kaleidoscope of colour and print."
"A photo-op with the beautiful Hari Nef outside the Gucci show."
"Excited to see Halima Aden in the Max Mara lineup - a progressive step towards inclusivity in fashion."
"Lots of wearable, womanly clothes at Fendi - and a gorgeous petrol blue fur coat!"
"Prada was set up like a teenage girl's bedroom from times gone by, complete with hot pink beds and posters and Polaroids on the wall."
"The clothes were a beautiful mash-up of different eras ('20s flappers, '60s movie queens, '70s student radicals) as Miuccia Prada pondered the place of feminine seduction in today's world."
"A pit stop at the White Milano trade show to check out fellow Malaysian designer Jonathan Liang's flower power wares."
"The other big co-ed show of the season was Bottega Veneta, where Tomas Maier showed noirish '40s glamour on both the girls and boys."

"To unwind, coffee and tiramisu at 10 Corso Como is always a must when in Milan."
"The visionary 10 Corso Como also had an Araki exhibition going on in its gallery space while we were there."
"And finally, one last party to close out Fashion Week! Dolce & Gabbana threw a Dancing Queen bash to celebrate their inclusive, feel-good collection which was shown on a large group of real people, including Malaysia's own Rachel & Michelle Yeoh."
