Milan Fashion Week drew to a close last Monday, and we are now in the final few days of Paris before the fashionistas have a chance to hibernate until September.
Here in Milan the city came alive during those few days of fashion frenzy. The streets were dotted with colourful outfits and Tommy Tons running around trying to capture the next street-style star. I was lucky enough to have the chance to watch a show by Cristiano Burani, a classy Italian designer – pictures below – which was held in the most beautiful traditional hall next to the Duomo. It’s those moments where you find yourself watching the modern world meet hundreds of years of timeless history that reminds me why I love Europe so much!
Getting back to a bit of style chat, as always, the real fashion was found on the street. I wanted to capture a few of these pavement stylistas, so I ventured down to the Roberto Cavalli show held outside Milan’s stunning Arco della Pace on the Saturday morning. It would have been a dream to have the chance to watch the show, however, sadly my Zara coat was apparently not up to Cavalli standards 😛
But what a fun morning it was! The sun was shining and the fashionistas were stood in their outrageous outfits just waiting to be snapped. It was brilliant, you could sit for hours on a corner and have your own personal street-style fashion show. I had the chance to photograph a number of famous bloggers and models, and even pick up a few style tips myself. Although, I have to say, no matter how cool these girls looked, I’m still not sure I’d ever be able to wear a pair of socks and sandals, but I guess that’s fashion!
