January flew by in a fraction of a second and we are now closer and closer to spring time: days are getting longer and dark evenings finally shorter. February is one of my favourite month of the year, a month when Fashion fever sweeps the whole world from New York to Milan. It feels to me like a spring awakening after the long winter and I am so excited to have a glimpse into summer, when new collections fill the runways with vibrant colours and prints.
It all starts at Paris Fashion Week, a city where Haute Couture magic happens with Chanel, Miu- Miu, Dior, Ralph&Russo and Stella McCartney leading the way. Big gowns, over-the-top statement pieces- expect to see all of that followed by very late gourmet Parisian dinners.
Next on the list- New York where Carolina Herrera, Ralph Lauren and Michael Cors are taking over TriBeCa, Spring Studios and 6 St. Johns Lane with their glossy Upper East side looks. Evening usually ends with loads of cocktails and late-night dancing.
London Fashion Week bring buzz to my city, while celebrating diversity by established and new designers. I love how designers embrace it and channel it through their collections. Burberry is leading the charge and expect fantastic shows by Roksanda, Christopher Cane and Temperley, which I find most inspiring.
Of course Milan is the fashion capital of the world and the shows there attract the entire fashion world. Versace, Fendi, Salvatore Ferragamo, Marni – there is only a small selection of the brands showing in Milan. The whole city turns into one big fashion party with endless “Milanese Aperitivos” while the streets become a fashion catwalk.
I am very excited to share my new spring summer collection with you very soon and I hope it will inspire you and fill you up with excitement for the coming spring months.
