Frida Giannini once started crying during her show at Milan Fashion Week.
The Gucci creative director is a veteran at showing off her latest collections at the prestigious event but admits she's not immune from the odd disaster.
She said: ''A few years ago, in the most exciting moment of the show, all the evening gowns were on the catwalk but the music was completely off. There was a technical problem, so the models were all out and I was crying backstage.''
However, it clearly didn't put her off and Frida once gain impressed with her Gucci show yesterday (22.02.12) with a palette of purple, burgundy, navy, forest green, dark olive and brown alongside the trademark black.
Ahead of the show she told Italian newspaper La Repubblica: ''I was thinking about a certain type of romanticism. It's quite nocturnal in a way, quite dark, but still very sensual and feminine. It's about the dual of the Gucci woman - she can be very feminine and sensual, but as the same time very tough and powerful. There are some military references from the 19th Century, so I have explored equestrian boots.''
Alberta Ferretti and Alessandro Dell'Acqua's No.21 also showed yesterday.
