I usually attend fervently the exhibition that every year Vogue Us and the Costume Institute organize at the Met; but I have to admit, the "Camp: notes of Fashion" didn't meet my expectations. The aim was to talk about the camp culture, which started in the middle of the XVII century and culminates on the runaway in the current collections. I can't really say the reason I didn't appreciate it, maybe because it seemed poor of outfits or because I didn't enjoy the dresses exposed. But probably...

When I planed my summer trip to Morocco, the first thing that came in my mind was: Yves Saint Laurent museum! I previously saw many posts about that and my curiosity was huge. So i dedicated a whole day to enjoy the museum, the garden and the cafè. The collection in the museum is not really big, around 20 dresses, but it shows all the most recognizable outfit by the designer (unfortunately it is not allowed to take pictures, so I just have these "secret" ones). The most fascinating part is for...

I was so excited when I was approaching the exhibition, and my feelings were telling me the truth! The dresses were not a lot, only 21 actually, but they were so incredibly beautifully Alaia. I could meet the white jersey dress with hood, worn by Elle McPherson on her wedding and the black jersey "houppette", which was the silhouette of the parfum bottle. What made even more glorious the exhibition was the environment: the main room of Palazzo Clerici, with frescos made by Tiepolo, like the one...

How can you have a good time during a sunday raining afternoon in Milan? Spend a couple of hours at the Silos and have a look at the outfits and accessories that show the changing time and lifestyle of fashion from the 80s till today. You can feel the Armani taste all around: the simplicity of the decorations and the monumentality of the rooms are perfectly combined with the essentiality and the elegance of the dresses exposed. Actually I would say, everything was extremely too simple and I...

Today I was in Paris to meet a client and fit some dresses; since I finished earlier then expected and still had a few hours before my flight back to Milan, I took quickly the underground ( the fastest way for sure!) and went to the Musee des Arts Decoratifs. The line was quite long and extremely slo, but I managed to enter and i started feeling like a child at Disneyland! I was inside a huge retrospective on Christian Dior's work, featuring more than 300 dresses, from the house of Dior origins...

This weekend 14 ateliers in Milano opened their doors and the public could not only visit were the enchanting dresses are made or showed, but also enter incredible and usually inaccessible buildings. I went to Palazzo Donizetti, where the showroom and the offices of Alberta Ferretti are located. The designer chose this building for her own company because it perfectly represented her idea of femininity and elegance. Entering the big decorated gate, I got impressed from the frescos on the roofs,...
