The menswear fashion industry is barely half as big as that of the women’s. Though steadily growing, women’s wear designers still dominate the fashion industry both in Africa and overseas.

I even spotted some celebrities too. The runway was dominated by formal looks fused with both dark and bold colours. The designs included prints, chunky knits, hoodies, leather and fur collared jackets.
Here are some of our favourite looks from the Milan Autumn/Winter 2012 season:
