For Fall 2009 Gucci wonder woman Frida Gianni showed several fitted skinny leg suits in her ready-to-wear collection.
Gianni's line was heavy on the dark colors, but did feature many 80's style graphic pop pieces to add fashion flair.
Gucci's ready-to-wear collection for Fall 2009 was definitely aimed at a younger, more fashion forward and glamorous crowd.
Implications - The androgyny trend seen in many fashion shows signals towards a movement toward self-made women who put their careers first. While the majority of households in North America still have the man of the house as the breadwinner, women are now becoming more educated and more integrated into the world of business. Feminine suits are a sign of this huge gender role transition.
