Milan Fashion Week Diary FW13 // Day Two
posted on Friday February 22nd 2013
Hi Pretty Birds,
Alessandro and I are back together again for my Milano fashion week diaries.
We thought that yesterday’s video regarding Suzy Menkes article was a positive way to start the week. Thank you for every one of your comments as the exchange of ideas and different points of view is vital to evolution of fashion and style.
In this episode Elisa Nalin and I stop for a quick coffee at Victoria Cafe before the Antonio Marras show and catch up on the latest Italian fashion news. Our conversation touches on Biancamaria Gervasio’s depature from Mila Schön and Alessandra Facchinetti’s arrival as creative director at Tod’s. For those of you who are not familiar with these ladies’ work, Biancamaria is an award winning Italian designer whose work has been honored at AltaRoma and Nude. She started as an assistant to Mila Schön in 2003 and was promoted to Creative Director in 2007. Alessandra Facchinetti worked as a designer at Gucci before being named Creative Director at Valentino, after leaving the house she launched the highly innovative, user generated design project Uniqueness.
Please enjoy the video.
Special thanks to Annina Piana.
