Milan Fashion Week is officially over and the fashion girlies have made their way to Paris for the last international leg of fashion month. Despite all eyes now on the French capital, the events in Milan, Italy are worthy of a recap — both the decidedly chic and the absolutely bonkers.

The set designs for the Spring 2024 season were positively oozing with personality — and I mean that literally. Prada’s runway saw slime that dripped in gooey chunks from the ceiling and puddled on the floor.

Meanwhile, at Boss, attendees time-warped to the future to enter a “techtopia.” They were greeted by Sophia the Robot, AKA one of the world’s most advanced humanoid robots, and watched futuristic ensembles sashay down the runway.

If the runways themselves were buzzy, they were nothing compared to the clothing that topped them. Moschino showed pieces printed with NSFW body parts, while at Bottega Veneta, Matthieu Blazy’s leather-laden collection flaunted his construction prowess.

Gucci, meanwhile, made a splash on multiple fronts, including Sabato De Sarno’s successful debut as creative director. The label’s recently-revived Horsebit Chain handbag was also a major success, hanging from the arm of virtually every influencer and editor this season.

The world’s biggest fashion models returned to the catwalk this season like clockwork. Gigi Hadid blessed fans with not one, but two runway appearances in Milan. Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner walked for Versace, but made even more buzz when she sat in the front row with boyfriend Bad Bunny.

Ahead, peruse all of the most memorable fashion moments from Milan’s September 2023 Fashion Week — both on and off the runway.

Models paraded down the stage in a riveting show, but something else drew guests’ attention. Slime oozed from the ceiling, forming gooey puddles in the middle of the Prada runway. Needless to say, the display was splashed across Fashion TikTok before the evening wrapped.

& Kylie Jenner Stole The Show

It’s always a treat when Kylie Jenner emerges from her billionaire compound to attend fashion week shows. This season, Jenner pulled up to Prada Spring/Summer 2024 in a skirt made entirely out of crystals. A scene-stealer, as always.

Even without Moschino’s beloved creative director Jeremy Scott, their latest collection was packed with viral-worthy moments. The most notable were the swimsuits, jumpsuits, and undies that featured painted-on breasts and vaginas.

Making a statement on AI and today’s tech-driven world, Boss took guests to the future with a cyber-focused set. The show featured Sophia the Robot, which is one of the most advanced humanoid robots on earth. Creepy? A bit.

Gigi Hadid finally made an appearance this Spring 2024 fashion season, walking in two Milan shows. At Boss, she wore modern workwear, debuting a skirt suit and bra. For Versace, however, she looked every bit the 1960s dream in a yellow cowl-neck number.

& Natalia Bryant Made Her Modeling Debut

Elsewhere on the Versace runway, another star was born. Natalia Bryant, Kobe Bryant’s daughter, made her runway debut in a structured LBD and metallic ballet flats.

Kendall Jenner also made an appearance on the Versace runway, but it was her front-row appearance that truly sent the internet into a tizzy. She attended Gucci’s highly-anticipated show with boyfriend Bad Bunny, officially making their fashion week debut.

Also at Gucci, Sabato de Sarno made his official debut as the label’s new Creative Director. His first season as the brand’s lead was met with a warm welcome. This shimmery green number, in particular, was a hit on social media.

Another hit at the Gucci show? The label’s Horsebit Chain handbag. Designed by Tom Ford in 2003, the accessory made its official comeback 20 years later on the Fall 2023 runway. Naturally, just a season later, everyone was carrying the shoulder bag at the Spring 2024 shows, flaunting its oversized horsebit emblem.

Protesters Crashed The Runway... Again


Following protests during New York Fashion Week, animal rights activists from PETA also managed to infiltrate the Gucci runway. One woman flashed a sign calling for the label to ban exotic skins.

Bottega Veneta Centered Leather On The Runway

Meanwhile, the fashion set was all praises for Matthieu Blazy’s latest Bottega Veneta collection. The entire show fully flaunted the designer’s technical expertise in leather manipulation (a known talent of the brand, which is famous for its intrecciato weave). The line proved, yet again, that Blazy and Bottega are a match made in fashion heaven.
