If I had to name you one event just as exciting as the fashion week, it would have to be the Milano Design Week !
Although I am totally hooked on the fashion weeks, especially the ones taking place in Milan, I have to admit that on some points, the Design week is way ahead..! Aside from the fact that it is the largest furniture and design fair in the world;
Il Salone del Mobile, as it is called in Italian, takes place every year during the month of April and is really, but really worth your while! Over a week the whole city turns into a mega art fair full of exhibitions, openings, pop up stores, parties and more importantly, full of people from around the world. In fact, with this infusion of cultures it reminds me of London…
If you are following me on twitter, you might know that, I will be collaborating with the Dolce and Gabbana’s online magazine, Swide!!! I will be their fashion reporter for the #swidesign section on Twitter.* Which means that I will be snapping pictures around town all week, but not with my SLR… With my phone!
Ok, I know, taking pictures with a phone is not a revolution at all but it is very uncommon for me to have these kind of assignments, therefor I am quite excited!
So yes, I will be taking street style and fashion inspiration shots to immediately share them with you on Twitter and Instagram. Which doesn’t mean that I won’t be shooting for the blog with my usual camera, just that I will be multitasking which is actually quite fun…
So I thought I would share with you my pictures of the day. To have their description check my Instagram. And do let me know which one is your favorite ;-)
By the way, did you ever attended the Milano Design Week? What did you think of it?
