It’s been a while since my last post but I was very busy lately with uni work and of course Milan Fashion Week. So today I will be talking to you about my trip to Milan, my daily activities, my outfit posts and the upcoming trends for Fall Winter 2016-17, straight from Milan. First day was all about wandering around, relaxing and charging our batteries for the long days that were expecting us. Day 2. The day started with Cavalli Class. We then went to Versace Jeans were we placed another order and completed our day at Byblos Milano. Day 2 was a very busy day.
