Gigi Hadid was close to tears as she walked in her final TommyxGigi show during Milan Fashion Week on Sunday (25Feb18).
The in-demand model has been working with style stalwart Tommy Hilfiger since 2016, and on Sunday the design duo showcased their fourth and final collection.
Inspired by Tommy’s love for motorsports, the models, including Gigi, rocked sporty ensembles as they strutted their stuff.
“I walked into Tommy’s dressing room this morning, and we both had to kind of not talk about it, because you’d start tearing up,” Gigi said before the show, reports Cosmopolitan.
Titled Drive, the show was a homage to Tommy’s passion for racing cars, and also a nod to his partnership with Formula One team Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport.
Gigi, who opened and closed the show, was joined on the runway by her sister Bella, Winnie Harlow, Hailey Baldwin and Joan Smalls.
And it wasn’t just girls that were involved, but menswear was also displayed too, with Jeremy Meeks and Lucky Blue Smith among the male models.
The front row was just as starry as the model line-up, and included Ruby Rose, Olivia Palermo and real-life F1 star Lewis Hamilton, who all took in the fall 2018 collection, which was filled with sporty crop tops, colour-block leather garments and chequered prints, reminiscent of racing flags.
Dolce & Gabbana also showed in Milan on Sunday, where designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana stuck to the opulent feminine glamour they’re known for.
Intent on chasing the millennial market, the Dolce & Gabbana show opened using drones, with a procession of eight aerial vehicles appearing, each carrying a handbag.
Baroque, velvet and sumptuous embroidery were the order of the day, with each model wearing heavily patterned outfits, teamed with over the top accessories.
