Milan Fashion Week only happens twice a year! If I could only attend one Fashion Week in the world it would come down to Milan VS Paris. Milan is home to the Italian fashion houses who show off their collections think Gucci, Prada, Moschino, Versace etc. And who can resist Italian fashion? Many of the shows take place in showrooms, or in studios but what makes Milan special is that sometimes shows can take advantage of the city’s outdoor landmarks. The Piazza Duomo located in Milan’s central square, or the courtyard of a 15th century castle- the Castello Sforesco, and the Arco della Pace located in Parco Sempione have all been the center of a few fashion shows in their time! These places let the public see the shows, so if you’re planning to travel to Milan during FW, check out these historical hot spots for fashion spotting.
I feel as if I haven’t made a post about Elena Perminova in ages, and I’m sure some of you might be missing her style moments around here. The Russian trendsetter, and mom of three isn’t one to play around with hairstyle or makeup, you’ll notice that her hair is always done in a simple manner, or that her makeup is minimalistic, anddd I think she does this because she likes to let her outfits speak for themselves. I, on the other hand would want to be playing with my hair and makeup for each look, just because it’s fun to be able to change your looks, especially when you’re wearing gorgeous clothes. Anyways that’s enough of my opinion! Enjoy the post, you’ll see some style that varies from Christian Dior, to Elie Saab.
What do we look for in designer fashion labels? Is it their relevance, or the way they make a statement? When fashion week rolls around, the concrete catwalk is almost as equally as important as the runway. The streets set the trends. The quirky, and vibrant outfits of the risk takers are flaunted in our faces, while the style makers will be setting trends that so many of us will be inspired from, and interpret. It’s no secret that there’s just a few brands out there that continue to roll out those hot list items that we continue to crave. These top 10 brands know how to market love at first sight, and they definitely know how to slay.
