Watch the full-length video of the fall/winter 2012 Dolce & Gabbana womenswear fashion show.
Nicola Formichetti gave me a personal preview of the fall/winter 2012 Mugler collection yesterday afternoon. They’re inspired by insects, geishas and ninjas this season. Mugler also collaborated with Christian Louboutin for the shoes. Bag fanatics take note — he’s thinking of introducing bags and small leather goods next year. I can’t wait to see watch the Mugler fashion show tonight!

Immediately after the Moschino fashion show, I visited the fall/winter 2012 Furla presentation. They’ve collaborated with performance artist Sissi to launch their new collection of very spacious and reversible tote bags dubbed “Furla and I”. A mini stage was installed in the venue where models, in white leggings, rotated, holding the new bags. They also presented several new additions to the Furla Canda collection — I like the white Furla Candy bag with the dalmatian print on ponyskin.

I have to be honest — I could count, with three fingers, the reasons why I would attend a 9AM show: it has to be a brand or designer that I personally love, to show my support to an advertiser, and lastly, a friend is designing/styling the show. It could also be a combination of both or all of the above. In any case, I had fun at the Moschino show a couple of days ago. I’m obsessed with backpacks as of late and these gold-chained knapsacks from their fall/winter 2012 collection are soo cute. They remind me of backpacks Chanel did back in the dark ages but the handle made them — multifunctional in the sense that you can also carry them as a handbag. Love it!
Anna dello Russo, who styled the collection, wore the backpack after the show.
Here’s the view from my seat at the ultra decadent fall/winter 2012 Dolce & Gabbana fashion show earlier in the afternoon.
A trip to Milan won’t be complete without paying Prada (aka handing out cash you’ve earned in between seasons) a visit. I picked up two of their stunning spring/summer 2012 shoes before Fashion Week began.

Something funny really happened earlier this morning at the Marni show. Before taking Anna’s photo, she quipped, ‘wearing your diamonds today…’. I couldn’t help but smile AND wished my cubic zirconia aka broken glass necklace from J. Crew were from Graff instead. He he he ;-)
Always a delight to see Mama Wintour!
