Fashion Week: Day 1

Today was our one day in Milan to run around and see all our Italian designers.

We began at Studio Zeta to take a look at the Yigal Azrouel collection. Easy pieces in beautiful prints and flowy chiffon dominated for Pre Fall 2012.

Next we were off to the glamorous showroom of Derek Lam. The collection is housed in a grand room full of fresco’s on the wall- magic. Lam introduced a sunflower color as well as great bandana type prints for Fall.

We then continued on to Brian Atwood. Platforms, lace-ups, and leopard print took center stage. Can’t wait to add him to out repertoire of shoe designers at AlOthman.

We then went to the gardenlike showroom of Costume National. Embedded between gardens of Cacti, the Pre Fall collection was full of cocoon shapes. There was the odd silver lame wrap tuxedo dress that grabbed our eye as well.

Last stop was to Alice and Olivia. The collection was bright and girly and fun as it always is. They extended the line to include a capsule called ‘air’. Filled with jersey and cotton knits in the forms of slinky dresses and seperates.

Jetting of to Paris now. The week of fashion is just beginning.
