As far as autumns go, it’s been a major fortnight for runway star-in-the-making Lila Grace Moss. Just days after celebrating her 18th birthday, the daughter of Kate Moss and Dazed magazine co-founder Jefferson Hack made a blockbuster runway debut on Miu Miu’s SS21 catwalk. The show, which was broadcast from Milan on 6 October, is the exclamation point to end an extraordinary fashion month that’s seen the virtual FROW become something of a new normal.
