Fashion Week

Zanita x Nordstrom: Milan Fashion Week Diary

It’s absolutely stellar to be on the scene in Milan. I feel revitalized—it’s been hard work—but being here for Fashion Week for the first time (and back in the sunshine) is a real thrill. It’s far easier to get around in Milan than it is in New York and London, which eases the stress a whole load.


The street style is absolutely brilliant, and I’ve been able to get some great shots. There are obviously hundreds of photographers vying for the perfect shot of that particular Russian editor/billionaire’s wife or that one blogger who never takes a wrong step in the style stakes.

Two days into MFW and my highlights include a sighting of indie actress Juno Temple and the brightly colored and romantic Alberta Ferretti show, which featured some of the most heavenly models I’ve seen on the runways yet.

The energy of it makes me so excited, because these people are truly lovers of fashion—not just new clothes but the evolution of designers and trends—and it brings all of these people together from across the globe.

Loving being in Italy, and while all the fashion and events have so far been just incredible, whenever I ask anyone what their favorite thing about coming to Milan for Fashion Week is, they always say, “THE FOOD!” And with that I’m back to my desktop snack of buffalo mozzarella and cherry tomatoes. Viva Italia!
