Milan Fashion Week is already here. Let´s go!
As you know shopping and fashion are my big passions, so … what can be better than to pack and embark to Milan Fashion Week which takes a start from September 20th this year!
My slogan is “there is always a space for an extra pair of heels in my closet and a bag”, so without thinking I bought a direct ticket to Milan, a city known as a capital of Italian fashion.
If you have never been to this city before, I recommend you do it this week, as the streets are full of style, glamor and champagne … lots of free champagne guarantied!
Obviously, the clear majority of the planet are not rich or fashion bloggers, so we will hardly have a fortune to receive Versace house invitation to be in the front row of their defile. Still, believe me that experience the city changes during this frantic week is priceless. The streets also become defiles, everyone goes outside with their best outfits and Milan is full of fabulous events so there are thousands of plans to do during the week.
So, we take our the most daring and extravagant outfits and get on a plane … Milan Fashion Week is waiting for us! As an appetizer, I leave here the calendar of all the defiles for the season.
Defiles of Milan Fashion Week
Defiles of Milan’s fashion week what does this mean? I can imagine elegant atmosphere and art everywhere.
Unfortunately attending one of these fashion week shows in Milan is almost impossible. Neither the pleas to the security will work to pass. To be able to do with an accreditation we have to be journalists, big buyers or celebrities and yet we have to fill in and do so much paperwork which is a tremendous pain.
But do not worry because I have the alternative that is almost better than seeing a show of Dolce&Gabanna and is called: AN APERITIF IN MILAN.
Where to try the best appetizers in Milan
This plan is infallible if you want to eat economically in Milan (this city stands out for its high standard of living and, therefore, high prices).
If you are looking for where to get the best aperitives in Milan here you have the answer.
Take a pen and a paper and because I am going to give you my top 3 bars in Milan where you will pay only for the drink and get a free snack buffet. Here they go:
- Bar Rita: located in the bohemian district of Navigli for the locals this is the perfect place for a truly authentic aperitif. Recommendation: I always opt for the old-style Negroni, the best one in town is in this bar.
- Santeria Social Club: located in Viale Toscana 31, is a place that is well-known for having a menu with wonderful cocktails. The atmosphere of this place truly reflects the avant-garde of this city. With its alternative architecture and design, this space seems to have been created by great artists. It is the perfect place to take an Instagram picture with your Italian artisan drink.
- Spiritz Bar: for me this is the top of the top. While you are walking the Navigli it will be impossible for you not to see this place and resist getting there for a good glass of Apperol Spritz. A charming place without a doubt.
Milan, a capital of fashion and design
When I was a little girl I really liked playing fashion designer and pretending to work in the big fashion company. Without sounding like a joke, I am still dreaming that “when I grow up” I will end up working on it. But the great reality is that my passion about creating clothes has become a passion about buying it.
And you … are you thinking of studying at fashion school?
Of course, in Milan you can choose between many alternatives and absolutely all of them have a considerable prestige. However, the most famous in Italy and one of the most prestigious in the world is L’Istituto Marangoni in Milan (it is in the same ranking, like for example, the highly acclaimed Central Saint Martins in London).
If the world of fashion is also your passion, do not wait any longer to book your flight to Milan because you will undoubtedly find inspiration at every of its streets. And those who are not interested in fashion, it does not matter, I advise you to visit Milan these dates and to check some of the thousands of events that are all around … do not forget that you will find free champagne throughout the city!
