Wrapped skirts with above-the-knee hems

Rather than what Milanoo calls "the consistent sexy style" typical of previous fashion events, this year featured wrapped skirts that ended above the knee. 

"Skirts have been very popular these years. But things are changing. This year, they may have to give way to long dresses in the fashion world," noted the company.

Classic white

White dominated at New York Fashion Week. "This year, Reed Krakoff's unique design displayed more charm of the colour by mixing it with soft and graceful textures, resulting in unconventional and elegant looks," noted Milanoo.

Sheer fabrics and over-clothing

"Semi-transparent styles are also a fashion element," commented Milanoo. "Both Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta applied bold embroidery to their clothes. Coincidentally, they both adopted a two-layer design with semi-transparent printing overlaying the pure-colored inner layer. Dresses in this style appear luxury, exquisite and elegant."
Contrasting colors

"Thanks to his genius, colourful clothes in geometric shapes make ordinary clothes look extraordinarily eye-catching," Milanoo said of Suno. "He's a great master in applying contrasting colours which have been popular over these years and will still be well pursued this year."

Milanoo offers over 100,000 items of fashion apparel and other products, including wedding dresses, evening gowns, cosplay costumes, corsets, women's bags and shoes, and accessories.
