Milan Fashion Week kicks off…

22 September 2008



Phew! Barely time to get to the dry cleaners or feed the cat, let alone lament the fact London Fashion Week's over for another season, because we're off to Milan. We arrived in the Principe di Savoia hotel yesterday morning and were greeted with a huge pile of invites (hurrah!). After sifting through them for a couple of hours, here's what we're really excited about for Milan Fashion Week:

* Seeing Katy Perry's showcase for D&G tonight (who knew she was their new muse?).

* Meeting Gwyneth Paltrow, Dennis Hopper and Diego Della Valle at the Tod's dinner on Wednesday to celebrate the premiere of ‘Pashmy Dream', a short film written and directed by Dennis Hopper for Tod's starring Ms Paltrow.

* Attending the opening of the Salvatore Ferragamo Evolving Legend 1928-2008 exhibition tomorrow.

* Watching fashion's ‘It' Brit Christopher Bailey latest collection for Burberry go down the catwalk this afternoon and analysing Miuccia Prada's creations tomorrow.

And you should be excited about them too because we'll be reporting live from Milan all week to bring you all the fashion as it happens. Literally. Check back soon for more!
