For me, this Milan was about dealing with the past and bringing the best of it into the present day. Everywhere you looked there was something 70s going on, but I didn't so much care about that. Prada was magnificent because it was all about what we can learn from the past: celebrating and nurturing old craftsmanship. Everything doesn't have to be new all the time. Versace was honest in its no-fuss approach to its own heritage, stripped down in a kind of take-it-or-leave it way. And Fendi was incredibly gutsy. Karl Lagerfeld's courage in basing a collection on fascist architecture (and uniforms), and recognising the beauty in it, was a real moment. Anders Christian Madsen, Fashion Features Editor

It has to be Prada! Miuccia mourning the disappearance of slow fashion was the most intelligent idea I've heard all week. Bertie Brandes, Features Editor

The plastic-fantastic roller-skating Barbie dream girls at Moschino. Felicity Kinsella, Assistant Editor

Marni's karate belts and floral bombers, Trussardi's blues (especially that suede jumpsuit) and Versace's... errr... ringholes. Stuart Brumfitt, Digital News Editor

My highlight, along with the rest of the fashion world, was obviously Gemma Ward opening Prada. It reminded me of just why fashion is fun and exciting and about celebrating personality. I also loved Versace, the zig-zags, the glitter and the skirts emulating hold-ups. Though Milan Fashion Week received its criticisms, there were still some gems that were fun and sexy and loud and that we can celebrate without being too caught up in the realities of contemporary life. Bojana Kozarevic, Fashion Assistant 

For a season lacking in real moments, Gemma Ward's catwalk comeback will live long in the memory. Out of nowhere, one of the most super of supermodels had returned. How had this march for Miuccia remained a secret? The collective heart of the industry's elite skipped the moment their smartphones focussed on the swaggering sexiness of this sorely missed i-D cover star. Gemma, don't be a stranger. Steve Salter, Head of Social Media

Moschino for all its low-brow goofiness in a world of high-brow restraint. Felix Petty, Content Manager
