Bricks Versus Clicks

Just going through my usual dose of fashion news online… D&G shows some major online love, even placing's CEO front row at their show yesterday afternoon.

From today's Women's Wear Daily:


are now officially front-row material. At least that was the case at
the D&G show on Thursday, where Neiman Marcus’ Burt Tansky and
Saks’ Steve Sadove and other retail heavyweights were accommodated in
the second row, and further back for fashion directors. In front of
them were four high-profile bloggers — The Sartorialist’s Scott
Schuman, Garance Doré of, Tommy Ton of
and Bryan Boy of And to make their job easier, two desks
and four laptops were set up right in front of them, entirely
operative, as there's no time to waste in cyberspace.

From Wall Street Journal's Christina Binkley (via twitter):

  • Arrived in Milan from LA in time to change my shoes and race to DandG. Always weird to see the Saks execs sitting 2nd row in Europe.
  • Well, Saks may be 2nd row at DandG (so am I), but Bergdorf's and Neiman are 3rd. Correlation to their sales? Milan fashion week.
  • Honestly – It's a
    new world order: federico marchetti, ceo of online retailer Yoox, is
    front row at D+G. saks, bergdorf, neiman's, aren't.

My Afternoon at Dolce & Gabbana

So many meetings, so little time. I spent a chunk of my afternoon visiting one of the most gorgeous offices and showrooms I’ve ever been to in my entire life: Dolce & Gabbana.

I also met Salvo, the super man who takes care of all the celebrities in the glamorous and glittering world of Dolce & Gabbana such as Madonna, Kylie etc.

Stefano Gabbana

Stefano Gabbana

Baby, we're not in Manila anymore . I kid you not when I say there are times when I want to smack myself on the face to see whether I'm awake or dreaming. Guess who recognized me from my infamous camel picture…

Stefano Gabbana

Unfortunately my dear readers, I don't remember the EXACT words we exchanged but it went something like this –

"And where do you live?"
"You've come a long way!"
"Yeahhh!!! Thank you so much for having me here!"
"I know you. I have seen your photo. So you're the one in the camel!"

Not only Stefano Gabbana is good-looking, he's also super nice in real life and he definitely made me feel comfortable. J'adore!! OMG ang gwapo niya tumitili ang pek pek ko.

It's times like this that I want to scream to the entire world that I love my job, I love my job, I love my job.

Thank YOU so much to the wonderful and folks over at Dolce & Gabbana and Swide who took really good care of me and made everything possible. They even gave me a (very) quick tour of Metropol! I'll definitely cherish these moments! And yes, I would be love to join you guys again next season — womenswear!

Enough gushing… I have to work! More pictures, stories and backstage goodies from the show coming up.

By the meantime, check me out backstage at D&G Spring/Summer 2010.
