Fashion Week Diaries: Milly -- Not Life Changing, But Kind Of Fun

September 17, 2008 by Bryn

Milly was not your usual packed to the gills hullabaloo scene that many shows have turned out to be this week. Still flustered after my whirlwind Tam experience (standing? sitting? even getting in?), I was expecting another madhouse. But much to my surprise, the show was not overbooked, and check-in ran smoothly. While waiting for the golden gates to open, I spotted a lot of women in, well, Milly. You can't miss these vintage-inspired black and white patterned frocks that the designer is known for. I saw four girls (I'm not kidding you) wearing the Geo Floral dress below. At first I thought it was the PR uniform until I saw one girl give her style twin a look of death as she passed her by.

The models were dressed as 70's boho glamazons, decked out in oversized shades, crocheted scarves, ikat prints, and caftans. And the soundtrack was fantastic– Rolling Stones, The Doors,—all tunes appropriate for the attire. I even caught some front rowsters nodding their heads along to the beat in spite of themselves. Oh, and I got to watch the show next to an 11 year-old girl who thought this was the greatest thing in the whole wide world. Next to Hannah Montana, of course.

Some say the collection wasn't fresh or fashion-forward enough for the season. I say thanks, Milly, for letting us have some fun in the tents.
