La Dolce Mamma

On Dolce & Gabbana's runway, a celebration of motherhood that took in a rose-themed collection and a few of the cutest cameos

With the words "I love you Mamma" embroidered on elegant dresses, and a backstage moodboard wallpapered with iconic muses cradling their little ones, it was clear to all that Stefano Gabbana was feeling nostalgic this season. For winter, the house celebrated motherhood in all its glory with a symphony of roses, lipstick and lace – new mother Ashleigh Good walked with baby Emily, while the house's longtime favourite, Bianca Balti, showed off her glorious bump. Also on show, charming prints taken from the drawings rendered by Domenico Dolce's own familia, his beloved nieces and nephews.
