MILAN — Julie Hoomans closed the Diesel Black Gold Fall / Winter 2016 runway show Friday morning and was preceded on the catwalk by a half dozen models from across the Next network including Vera Van Erp, Selena Forrest, Caroline Reagan, Lineisy Montero, Wangy, and Sandra Schmidt. This was a return to the brand’s roots following years of showing in New York and from all appearances it looked well at home in the raw industrial space on the outskirts of the Italian fashion capital. Julie for her part brought the runway show to a fitting conclusion wearing a sequined motorcycle jacket, mini skirt, and black leather boots. Diesel Black Gold, welcome home!
