08.37am: The Italian Moschino powerhouse kicked off day three in classic style, showing its signature gold emblems across each outfit. The show opened with red tartan outfits before moving into a monochrome showcase. To ensure the Moschino gold touches were highlighted, models walked the runway in shoes with gold-plated fronts bearing the Moschino emblem – a reminder to the fashion pack that the boss is in town.

9:40am: Luxe, grown-up sportswear is what Sportmax does best, so we expected nothing less from the catwalk show this morning. It did not disappoint. Fur coats, waffle knits and pleated skirts were highlights of the collection. The sexy split skirt looks set to be a key piece for autumn/winter 2013/14 – as does blue, a hue we’ve seen at almost every show this season in various shades.
Elle Canada tweeted: Oversized coats, chunky knits, quilted leather at Sportmax. Super cozy, especially a propos bc of winter Wonderland on streets of Milan. #MFW

Jane Bibby tweeted: The cushions are back at #Etro, snatch & grab tactics at the ready!! #mfw
11.05am: As the front-row guests settled down on their personalised cushions, Etro took its signature paisley prints on a desert safari. Rustic red, brown and stone took the trip with an alternative twist. Gold geometric prints were the opening highlight alongside cropped, bellbottomed trousers and rugged leather biker jackets. Softer touches came from sparkling sequins as a reminder that Etro hasn’t forgotten its roots.

2:35pm: From backstage sneak peeks at Blumarine we knew this autumn/winter 2013/14 was going to be a little different, as the mood boards showed a collection full of predominantly light-coloured looks. And different it was. Apart from the few black leather looks, at first glance this collection could easily have passed as a spring/summer show, as it was full of sugar-sweet pastel hues and fedora-style hats. A closer inspection, however, revealed an expertly skilled use of wool and sheepskin on many pieces, as well as wool dresses and skirts made feminine with pleats and splits. The show-stopping look was without a doubt the dress and trouser combo heavily embellished with crystal – a unique silhouette designers are beginning to experiment with again this season.
Petra tweeted: #Blumarine was epic! It was enchantingly elegant and feminine.
