Sorry to only be posting this now, but things got a little hectic when I got back from London. I managed to take some photos there despite the constant down pour, and I'll post them soon. For now, here's a a little post about Milan's Vogue Fashion's Night Out.

On Tuesday night Milan celebrated Vogue Fashion's Night Out and it was SUPER fun! To prepare myself for the evening's festivities, I headed straight to the Missoni showroom minutes after my plane touched down from London Fashion Week to indulge in a Missoni "Zig-Zag Scratch" manicure. Bahama Mama's super nail specialist Anna was on hand to perform the manicure for a group of us zig-zag loving girls. It was such a love way to kick on Milan Fashion week and catch up with some friends that I hadn't seen since before the holidays.
My evening started off around 9pm when I grabbed my camera and set off to see what was going on around town... I thought that things would have died down by then, but the crowds were out in full force! The Milanese sure know how to have a good time. There were even a few traffic jams which stopped the city's ubiquitous orange trams in their tracks. My first stop of the evening was into Massimo Giornetti's MSGM boutique which opened its doors last week. I found the super sweet designer there chatting with a guest. Isn't he so cute? I then headed towards Via Sant Andrea where I popped into the Missoni store and found another amazing "Zig-Zag Scratch" color-way. Ooh I love options. After a swoon fest over the third zig-zag motif, I made my way to the Vogue Fashion Talents and Who Is On Next installations at Palazzo Morando. I originally popped in only to have a quick look (I had 7:40am that morning and was exhausted) and ended up staying for a couple hours to admire the brilliant work of this year's group of rising stars! The presentation included collections from Esme Vie, elegant, feminine pieces in simple shapes; Super Duper Hats who updated their tree-way convertible for next summer; Arthur Arbesser who offers charming simple pieces for girls who ooze self-confidence. He describes his pieces as "timeless, boyish and with an "intellectual sexiness."
In addition to Esme Vie, Arbesser and SDH, there were plenty more up-and-coming talents like accessory brand Coliac, whose collection is inspired by Art Déco and fetish touches; the duo Quattromani whose bee print dresses remind me a littl of Alexander McQueen's FW 2013 collection; Melis Yildiz vintagy yet futuristic shoes and bags; ComeForBreakfast's brilliant collection of print-pannled pleated skirts and cropped-in-the-back blouses. Lastly, I fell in love with Urania Gazelli's plexiglass clutch bags - there is one with a joker theme that makes me laugh whenever I pick it up! It's already on my wish list.
Happy fashion week to all!
