Molinari, known for her feminine and romantic clothes, used plenty of pastel colors and bold pinks for the Spring/Summer 2020 womenswear line consisting of floaty dresses and floral printed or embroidered tops, skirts, shorts and trousers. She opened the show with gold looks - a sequined top, dress and skirt - before introducing colorful crop tops and dresses in various lengths and styles, often decorated with cut-out floral patterns. Molinari put roses, her favorite flower, on organza tops, chiffon dresses, hot pants and pencil skirts, and as shimmering sparkles on long crystal embroidered evening gowns. A long trench coat and jeans were also embroidered with sparkles, while short satin slip dresses were trimmed with lace. Long silky gowns were draped at the front and cut out at the back. Molinari also put shimmering nets over some frocks. “Kindness towards others without the need of raising the tone of voice; being kind at heart, gracious in manners and behavior,” Molinari said in show notes.
