MILAN — This is not your mother’s Alberta Ferretti, that much was certain early Wednesday evening for designer’s Spring / Summer 2019 runway show. Ferretti has been designing for longer than every model in the lineup and in the time has long stamped her authority on dresses. This collection for spring had plenty of dresses, yes, but it also traded in denim and the odd miniskirt. Having killed everything from the mayonnaise to motor oil, Millennials can now be blamed for killing, erm, wait, no…Alberta Ferretti is in quite rude health as a matter of fact. The collection was youthful, yes, but also confident and willing get with the times. Bringing this collection to life, then were a half dozen models from across the Next global network including Cara Taylor, Wangy, Sara Eirud, Grace Elizabeth, Maria Miguel, and Lineisy Montero.
