Today I came to Milan, there are not lots of companies who does Geneva – Milano direct flights. I am used to take Baboo, my only problem is that the flight leaves at 7am from Geneva, which means I need to wake up at 4.30am, do I need to add more?
As usual Geneva airport was slow, and the flight short. Once in Milan airport, while waiting for my luggage, I noticed that the Italian custom guys, were more checking women passing by than actually the suitcases. That was the first sign telling me, you are in Italy…
Although I love Milan, I notice that whenever I come back to Milan, I spend most of my time in the car; it is not a distance problem, it is more a traffic problem. There is always a reason for traffic, a fashion fair, it is Friday, or Monday, or Tuesday, or an accident, or this or that. I guess it makes part of the charm and makes your destination the Promised Land. After spending more than an hour in the car, finally I arrived to destination. Today my mission is to find an evening gown, and my strategy is to go to some showrooms and then to go and explore all the boutiques in via Montenapoleone, and via della Spiga, basically the streets of whose who…
Well after spending hours in the traffic, walking until I couldn’t feel my feet, and trying I don’t know how many dresses… I still didn’t make my choice… which means tomorrow I am starting again. But I discovered an incredible designer. Giovanni Cavagna. He only sells at his showroom in Milan, and every piece is unique as he mixes different materials and most of his creations are hand stitched.
If you have an event and you want to have a one of a kind dress, you should definitely contact him.
I finish my day at a birthday party, which was held in a great space called 10wat. It looks like a big loft where you can rent any room you want, which are decorated in different styles. The party was happening in the Color room and Ethnic room. Two rooms with very modern decors, but the highlight was the bathroom, which was very big, where the bathtub was filled with water candles and flowers, and the walls where in glass.
Exhausted but happy I finished my first day in Milan… let’s see what tomorrow would reserve, and if I am going to find my dream dress..
