As the tradeshow wrapped up day one, we headed to the most anticipated shows of the season. First stop, SS 2020 collection by Il Gufo. With our key to the secret garden, we headed in and we were blown away. A fully interactive show, filled with children playing with dirt, planting flowers, having picnics, and jumping in puddles. This collection has endless possibilities while offering an array of different styles, and keeping the essence of allowing children to be children.
Our night ended with the whimsical SS 2020 collection from Monnalisa. The concept ‘A Fairy Tale’ met expectations with the location of a beautiful English garden in full bloom, and an open-air catwalk. Monnalisa continues to showcase show-stopping collections that are both chic and couture.
