Today I want to talk to you about my Milan fashion week experience last summer! After visiting Amsterdam Fashion Week I also had the big privilege to check out some shows and street style during Milan Fashion Week!
I have A LOT (not exaggerating) to share with you guys so I am going to put the video and the street style in a different post but I already wanted to tell you some about my experience, the shows I saw and give you some tips for when you want to visit Milan Fashion Week as well 🙂
To start this story, I am very happy and lucky that I got in at some shows! I did not email for invitations, I was not invited upfront and I was a bit scared to just ask to get in, but in the end I did and it was awesome. It was a very exciting adventure which was mostly unprepared except for the fact that I happened (partially planned it that way) to be in Milano during fashion week. If you want to visit shows I do not recommend you go to Milano without having any invitations because it would be a shame if you did not get in. If you however am also interested in shooting some street style pictures and you want to capture the vibe, the Milan Fashion Week feeling, GO (but prepare!).
In total I went to 5 different shows, most of them were from somewhat less famous designers but one of the shows was from the amazing Fausto Puglisi. I was told by a lot of different people that ‘it would be difficult to get in’ or ‘nearly impossible’. But I think I quiet have proven that this is not true.
