One of famous fashion streets in Milan, Italy, is Via Montenapoleone. I think this place is very unique. Besides having many stores of major designer brands, it gives an ambience of old Milano… historical sites and views. What amazing! Let’s have a little walk along this street.

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
Place: Fashion Quater (Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga, Via Sant’Andrea, Via Manzoni, San Babila)

Now, let’s check out some photos!
Last photograph, she looks like a famous model, Maria Carla Boscono, doesn’t she???
While I was walking along a fashion street in Milan, Via Montenapoleone, the dress from Prada really cought my eyes. It was so chic, so stylish and yet wearable for day/evening events. Prints with black, white and blue are so in. I love the ruffle details, which creates a look of sophistication. Empire waist and pleated A-line skirt are suitable for almost every body type. This kind of shape I really like, it is so comfortable to wear and you don’t have to worry too much about hiding some excess waist line under your belly. (smile!!!). Just love the design and how it looks. Yes, this is the dress of the day!
And here are some pictures of major fashion designer stores along Via Montenapoleone… just strolling around… it was a gorgeous day!
