Milan Fashion week kicked off on Wednesday. Tops design houses like Gucci, Fay and Roberto Cavalli are among the luxury brands featured in the six-day catwalk shows. 

While Gucci  presented a vibrant and colorful autumn/winter 2016/2017 collection, at Fay, creative directors Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi looked to the U.S. Western coast for their daywear.

At Roberto Cavalli, creative director Peter Dundas showed a richly-embroidered array of outfits.

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi inaugurated the Milan Fashion Week.

Models wore sequined skirts, tailored trouser suits, Chinese-style silk dresses, shiny brocade coats, capes, brightly colored tights and a range of hats, Reuters reported.
