 Milan Fashion Week kicked off today starting a six-day event and hosting 73 runway shows and a total of 184 collections.
 
Many labels will be on the runway for the first time, including Diesel Black Gold, Atsushi Nakashima, Ujoh (hosted by Giorgio Armani), Lucio Vanotti, Piccione.Piccione, Arthur Arbesser, Vivetta, and San Andres. The newest twist this year comes in the realm of social media, however, with some labels like MSGM requesting invitees to refrain from posting runway photos online.
 
Day one started with a new collection from Alessandro Michele for Gucci, the accessories designer know as the man with the Midas touch for his role in a turnaround of fortunes for the Italian luxury powerhouse owned by Kering.
