Everything Alessandro Michele touches has turned to gold since the talented designer took the helm as creative director at Gucci back in January of 2015. In the 20 months have passed since he came out from the shadows - he had worked behind the scenes for the brand since 2002 and was the head of accessories when he was promoted to the top job replacing Frida Giannini - Gucci has gone from simply being a luxury heritage brand to one of the most in-demand labels every season.
Michele's eye for detail and his female-celebrating forms, plus his penchant for the unexpected has won him legions of fans across the fashion world. His ability to create collections that speak to the masses has brought the brand into the new era, and his influence shows no signs of slowing down just yet.
With hit show after hit show, we're on the edge of our seats to see what Mr Michele will bring us this evening with the brand's S/S17 presentation.
You can watch it live from Milan on the video below from 430pm local time (GST +4).
