Fashion Week

Zanita x Nordstrom: Milan Fashion Week Diary

Another eventful few days here in Milan for Fashion Week—and I’m loving every minute. I’ve had a revival of wearing red lipstick lately, and I couldn’t go without pairing it with a red top for at least one day. Wide-leg pants are also a new staple in my wardrobe—so elegant and comfortable.

My friend Rebecca (Raspberry & Rouge) snapped these images of my outfit as we closed out another day with great success. Such an exciting season to be involved in it all!


This is the first time I’ve traveled to all four major fashion weeks, and it’s been pretty crazy, but Milan has felt like a revival. Maybe it’s because the food has been so good—I’ve managed to eat proper meals each day, and each meal has been more tasty than the last. While getting lost and stumbling across the Duomo and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, I had the chance to experience a mozzarella tasting at Obikà. The serving pictured above is meant for 2-3 people, so I guess you could say it was slightly more than a ‘tasting.’ Incredibly delicious!

Show highlights include the effortless and ethereal Sportmax, where silk and minimalism reigned—and of course Roberto Cavalli, where embellishment and detailing were quite the opposite.

I visited the Jimmy Choo showing, and fell in love with a good half-dozen pairs—do we really need to wait until spring to score these beauties?! At least any possible kleptomaniac urges were fended off by the fact that there was only one shoe from each style sitting in the display.

Got a great photo of an army of street-style photographers wearing all black—these guys have so much personality! Shooting street style is a labour of love, and these guys are some of the most passionate in their field about what they do. Loved seeing them on the other side of the lens!
