Arona, Lago Maggiore

On Saturday the weather was beautiful and we wanted to get out of the city. The choices were to drive to the mountains, to the sea or to the lake. The decision came as a surprise to me… a town on Lago Maggiore, Arona. On our way there I felt a certain familiarity in some little village. I had been there before a few years ago when going to Lago D’Orta. In my mind all the Italian villages look the same, but I guess not. You can read the rest of the story here.

Frankie Morello

On Monday the Milan fashion week for women presenting the spring summer 2010 collections was almost finished. I thought that I would be working backstage for Frankie Morello, but I wasn’t needed. The fashion world is full of surprises or at least that is how it is in Italy. I was sorry for not being able to see the clothing closely, but my friend Sara saved my day by asking me if I wanted to go to see the fashion show. Of course!!! Thank you of the invitations sweetie.

Aquilano e Rimondi

On Sunday was my favorite fashion show; Aquilano.Rimondi. I worked backstage for them also in February and the fall winter 2009-10 collection was gorgeous. I couldn’t wait to see this one for the coming spring 2010. Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi are the young powers of the Italian fashion scene, designing their own namesake collection, sold at Saks Fifth Avenue and other stores, in addition to designing Gianfranco Ferré. The rest of the story you find here.

Armani & Marco De Vincenzo

On Saturday was the spring 2010 fashion show of Emporio Armani. I went there with my dear friend Teemu and I was happy that I had skipped the birthday party of my friend’s the night before. (The others weren’t that happy of me staying home, though…sorry!) Via Borgognone was packed with people and photographers. I liked the atmosphere. You can read the rest of the story here.

Gabriele Colangelo

I was big time jetlagged after returning from Hong Kong and our dinner back in Milan turned out to be a Thursday night’s party. I just wished to get home to take a shower and to bed, but there were other plans made for me… Friday I met my dear friend for lunch. We hadn’t seen each other for weeks. In the afternoon I was also supposed to unpack my luggage, but instead I helped my model friend translating his mixer instructions from English into Italian?!?!?!?! (Pretty good considering that I didn’t even understand the words in English, hih hih…) The rest of the story you can continue reading here.

Hong Kong

“Ni Hao“. I got the change to fly to Hong Kong for a few days just before the Milan Fashion Week for Women started. I was so busy before my trip that I barely realized that I would be travelling to the other side of the world… or then I just didn`t stress that much anymore after all my trips. I flew Qatar Airways “World’s 5-star airline” and I was satisfied. You can read the rest here.
