CHANEL JOAN ELKAYAM A/W18 COLLECTION AT MILAN FASHION WEEK

My dear fashionistas!

 Last month, at the fashion week in Milan I had the chance to see Chanel Joan Elkayam A/W 2018 collection “Nonna”.

Chanel Joan Elkayam is the youngest fashion designer in fashion history who completed the big four fashion weeks by the age of 20 years old.

Her collection “Nonna” which she presented in Milan this year, was apparently inspired by her Jewish-Italian grandmother, who passed away a few months ago. The designer’s grandmother was forced to flee Tripoli in the 1940s due to the fear of fascism and the antisemitism imposed by Mussolini and Hitler during the Second World War. This collection was dedicated to her and her touching life story.

The designer used sensual fabrics, hand embellished with Swarovsky crystals and pearls in her pieces for the next cold weather season.

But the show wasn’t all glitz and glam: there were also casual pieces, designs with unusual, over-sized and asymmetrical cuts. The predominant colors were black, white, grey and beige.

My favorite pieces from the show were definitely the shining tulle dresses made of fine embroidery with pearls and precious stones.

The ethnic hebrew music has not gone unnoticed during the fashion show held in Milan. As it started I realized that the show was going to be impressive.

The collection was well-received by the public, with the audience bursting into loud applause as the fashion designer reached the runway at the end of the show.
