Giovanni Scafuro – Fuori Salone

20120418-212144.jpg

These days Milan is busy with two things: the rain and the Salone del Mobile fair. Plus, along with the main exhibition, tons of little activities and events are taking place as well (and probably they are more interesting that the fair itself). As one of my favorite designers is participating, I decided this was the best moment to talk to you about him. Do you remember when I mentioned the name of Giovanni Scafuro? Continue reading

Relax..!

Sorry I was absent in the past few days but, well, this is what I was doing (:  Everyone needs some time off, right? Anyway, now that I’m back I’ll be up and running with some new stuff. Be ready to follow a special tutorial on how to learn to tailor a… just wait and you’ll see! (:

Scusate se negli ultimi giorni non ho prestato particolare attenzione al blog ma.. beh, ecco cosa stavo facendo (: Tutti hanno bisogno di staccare la spina ogni tanto, no? Comunque ora sono più attiva e motivata di prima, aspettatevi delle novità, compreso un tutorial per confezionare passo per passo un… beh, lo vedrete (;

Easter look

I had decided what to wear weeks ago, and I was determined no matter the weather. Luckily, Milan gave us a sunny day, so I didn’t have to freeze thanks to my stubbornness (: Happy Easter everyone! Hope you had 24 hours full of chocolate! (I’ll be busy for a while (; )

Avevo scelto cosa indossare settimane fa, ed ero determinata a mantenere inalterata la mia decisione indipendentemente dal tempo.

Has anybody been there?

Cosa ne dite? Qualcuno di voi c’è stato?

The new Marilyn

Back we are with our New Designers appointment. Here’s an amazing white dress from Brenda which immediately made me think about a modern Marilyn Monroe. What do you say? Spring’s approaching and the weather in Milan has been beautiful in the past couple of days, reaching 20 degrees! I’d just want to wear this right now for an afternoon walk in the park! Ok, I’m dreaming here ’cause I need to study for my exams, but I think this garment would be the perfect interpretation for the 2012 little white dress.
