It’s Milan Fashion Week, February 22-28, 2012. Many major designers’ show are being performed during the week. As you go around the city, there will be several locations hosting the shows. We were at Piazza Oberdan (Milan, Italy) on Wednesday, Feb.22, where Gucci was. Here they were… fashion magazine editors, bloggers, models, etc. Let’s have a look at these photos… Enjoy!

Milan Fashion Week has ended already. I got a few snaps from Monday, September 26, 2011. It was at Arco della Pace … the crowd were gathering to go inside… (Roberto Cavalli’s show).

 

Let’s see some pictures.

 

 

 

 

A girl who a little like Whitney Port (don’t think it was her, though)

 

 

 

 

More smiles!

 

 

 

 

Good looking guests…

 

 

 

 

I love her shoes!!!

 

 

 

 

He must be a male model!

 

 

 

 

Another guest… uhmmm, don’t know where she’s from! … her dress is very Cavalli!

 

 

 

 

Nude pumps seem to be the greatest hits!

 

 

 

 

No heels… just tennis shoes would work too!

 

 

 

 

Nice wedges (with a bandage… beauty comes with pain?)

 

 

 

 

Green sheer stocking with sh-booties… hmmm… (don’t know what to say!)

 

 

 

 

Securities were packed!!!

 

 

 

 

Press people were also packed!

 

 

 

 

Men can have a clutch too! Can’t they? hehe

 

 

 

 

That’s it for this year… see you at Milan Fashion Week again in 2012!

I was at Piazza del Duomo (Milan, Italy) on Thursday and Friday (September 22-23, 2011). It was fun walking and seeing people came to the event… The weather was perfect, not too hot… but we had a bit of sunshine… it was such a nice week!

Fashion tent… placed right next to Duomo di Milano

Spectators in the area… good looking, right?

 

 

 

 

 

Love those shoes!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Teens walked by… they looked great! I love the very left girl. Somehow she reminded me of Amy Winehouse.

 

 

 

 

 

This man is really something… isn’t he?

 

 

 

 

 

They are male models… (I love Zoolander!!!)

Here we are at Via Tortona… 2 elephants with flags of 2 big football teams (AC Milan and Inter Milan). It’s so cool!

Have fun, ladies!!! This week is all about fashion 🙂

Milano…Milano… I can’t get enough of this city! It’s “Milan” for all the English speakers (and probably the rest of the world)… but it’s “Milano” for all my beloved Italians. Beside being a major city in North Italy, the famous reputation of Milan is a fashion city. Many Italian major brands have their headquarters here. What attracts them so much? I don’t know… but it works and it’s still going strong. Recently there was an “Open” event, called “Vogue Fashion Night Out”, which was organized by Vogue (Italia) Magazine … the purpose is to get people to come and shop… Yes, you heard me right, “come and shop”. Regardless to a whirlwind of economy, we were invited to check out major designer stores, see newest collections, get samples of perfume,…no one is giving out new products though! All were great… I had nothing to complain about. There was an opportunity to see, touch and smell. But you got to pay your own price if you wanted to possess. Here are event details;

Event: Vogue Fashion Night Out
Date: September 9th, 2010
Time: 7pm-11.30pm
Place: Fashion Quater (Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga, Via Sant’Andrea, Via Manzoni, San Babila)
Organizers: Voque Italia and City Hall of Milan
Cost: Free!!!

Now, let’s check out some photos!

Last photograph, she looks like a famous model, Maria Carla Boscono, doesn’t she???
