Tuesday 25th September
Milan Fashion Week (Spring/Summer 2012 for women) came and went and I didn't see a thing of it. It lasted from 19th September until 25th, and most of that time I was in England. It was only when I returned to Milan that I noticed a red carpet around Via Dante, a road that leads from the Duomo to Castello Sforsezco. I also noticed some rather stylish looking women around the place. Style goes without saying in Milan, but the women I saw around the Duomo/Brera area looked uber-stylish, slyph-like with legs up to their chin. That had me guessing - also the fact that many of them were not not brunettes with olive complexioned skin also led me to believe that this international crowd were here for an event.
I will just have to wait six months when they show next year's Autumn/Winter collection. In the meantime I will busy myself sprucing up my rather tired wardrobe. With a little luck, and a lot of je ne sais quoi I might even be able to look as stylish as this young lady who was spotted around Milan during Fashion Week.
