It’s been a great few days to be in Milan! Fashion Week came to town and I was lucky enough to get access to some of the hottest tickets in town! I saw some incredible shows, and as usual it’s hard to pick out my favourites! I’d have to say, though, that Versace was especially eye-catching
I have always associated Versace designs with flamboyant, colorful over the top, pieces, but this particular collection was very classic and clean. Lots of whites and golds and clean lines. But it was their shoe collection which really stole the show; very edgy but still sexy and elegant. I just had to get a pair… or two…!
Going for a different vibe, but still as creative, was another favourite of mine Dsquared2. As personal friends of mine, the designers, Dean and Dan have always taken risk with their designs and I thought they’d really taken this particular collection to the next level, and been so innovative this time around. The crazy, retro/hippy and biker chick look was mixed in with glam aspen. It sounds like it perhaps wouldn’t work, but it definitely did. And who would think of creating mini sprinklers with water gushing out on the runway. It was a fabulous show.
I’ve included a few pictures of me taken over the week. The first one’s me with Mrs Samuel Eto, Georgette. This is just before the Gucci show, and so of course, I’m wearing Gucci. I love that dress – it gets me lots of compliments! There’s another of me and Georgette before the Versace show, and then one of us at the BVLGARI event with Mrs Houssine Kharja, Ness.
So, what a great week! Now, it’s time to leave Milan behind for the time being and go onwards to London and then Ghana with work… Will update you again soon!
