Blumarine brought sheer romance to the runway with its Milan Fashion Week show.

The fashion house, established by Anna Molinari and her late husband, Gianpaolo Tarabini, in 1977, showcased a range of stunning gowns for its Spring/Summer 15 collection. Everything was intricately put together and a majority of the designs were adorned with beautiful floral patterns, while others were completely coated in delicate petals.

One number, an emerald green minidress with stunning colourful metallic open flowers, shimmered as the model walked the runway.

Others were more revealing, such as a sheer figure-hugging frock with blue and yellow plants covering the wearer's modesty, followed by a top of a similar design paired with an off-white skirt with a matching print.

Silk seemed to be the main fabric used in the range and all the pieces had a floaty, dreamy feel to them.

3D dresses like a low-cut number with white lining and sheer black-rimmed flowers only added to the extremely feminine finish of Blumarine's latest line.

There were more simplistic offerings too, such as a white pleated skirt paired with a sequined ivory top with three-quarter length sleeves.

Models let the clothes do the talking and had simple make-up and wore their tresses down and wavy.

Ermanno Scervino also went in a flower power direction with its Spring/Summer 15 range in the Italian city today. Designer Ermanno Daelli and entrepreneur Toni Scervino founded the brand in 2000 and the latest collection showed how far it's come with the striking garments on the catwalk.

The colour palette was mainly made up of neutral tones such as ivory and grey, and florals came in the form of pieces like a light-blue overcoat with white sleeves and stand-out flowers. These 3D touches also appeared on skirts and clutch bags worn by models.

Snakeskin was another touch added to the collection, with a cropped bralette and high-waisted skirt complete with two belts and a slit at the front boasting the wild finish.

One of the brighter colours included in Ermanno Scervino's collection was green, standing out with a skirt, dress and light jumper.

Milan Fashion Week continues today with the likes of Missoni and Versace showcasing their new items.
