dolce3MOTHER’S Day came early for the fashion-conscious mothers as the Italian designer, Dolce and Gabanna has showcased its autumn\winter 2015 collection. The show titled “Viva la Mamma,” was a tribute and celebration of all mothers everywhere.

Stereotypes were shattered in this showcase, as unconventional models were used on the runway. Pregnant models are not usually seen on runways, but at the showcase, that was a major attraction. Pregnant models, mothers with their babies as well as toddlers stole the show as they walked the runway in clothes printed with drawings by the designer’s employees, in the brand’s tribute to ‘Mamma’.

The aesthetics, which tied into the theme of celebrating real mothers and women from all over the world, revolved around a rose-printed extravaganza with almost every piece covered with embroidered, elaborate rose designs. Playing with varying symbols of femininity, the brand’s classics were all present: wiggle dresses with elbow-length sleeves and rose prints, pencil-skirt suits, embellished doctor bags, lingerie-inspired lace and the influence of the early-60s silhouette. The mix of the wholesomeness of family with a healthy dollop of sexy makes the collections stand out.

The curtain drew to reveal 11 model mothers with their own children on a stage at the end of the catwalk; after which notable D&G muse – Bianca Balti who is pregnant, walked down the runway to applause from the crowd. Songs that played included ‘Mama’ by the Spice Girls and ‘Viva la Mama’ by Italian pop singer Edoardo Bennato.

Makeup also played a huge role in the theme-it included matte skin, rosy cheeks, soft eyes and a plump lip.
