We spent a long weekend in Milan to attend the catwalk shows and event's during Camera Moda Milano Fashion Week to check out the latest Menswear Collections what's trending for Fall Winter 2020 where we both enjoyed the glitz and glam of Europe's leading Fashion Capital.

Prior to arriving in Milan for Fashion Week we spent the first couple of nights in Prato near Florence to review a hotel as part of our press trip collaboration with Art Hotel Museo. Upon leaving London Stansted Airport we flew into Italy via Pisa where we did a day trip to the leaning tower before enjoying a spot of lunch before jumping back on the train to Prato near Firenze. Our day trip to Pisa was very spontaneous as I had not thought of prior to planning my itinerary but really glad we made a day of it to do some site seeing and enjoy some authentic Italian food and wine from the local province of Tuscany. The wine and cuisine here is absolutely amazing and impressed how food is freshly prepared and a litre of wine is very reasonably priced too.

Even though we were there for a short while we made the most of our day to explore and the scenery is absolutely beautiful. We also had some fun taking pictures next to the leaning tower of pisa to pretend we tilted it in our pictures which made insta worthy pictures to remember for years to come. The leaning tower is also one of the seven wonders of the world which is a must see along with other famous world landmarks too see and there are many more on my bucket list to tick off in the near future.

Brands Featured: London Showrooms #LFWMEN at Milano Fashion Week to the Designer Runway Shows & Presentations at MFW from Numero 00, Cesare Paciotti, Iceberg to Spyder from the FROW to Behind the scenes in a day in the life of Bloggers/Stylist during Fashion Week. I wanted to share this Vlog sooner but due to the world wide pandemic happening at present it was a concern to me even attending fashion week in milan 1st Week of January hearing what was going on in China even before Covid 19 reached Europe.

Although this is my second visit to Milan during Fashion Week it will always have a special place in my heart as the energy of the city is exciting and fun to explore not forgetting the vibrant cosmopolitan nightlife in the leading fashion capital.

It saddens me to think anything could have happened during my trip to Milan but even now I'm home it's safer to stay indoors as we need to make sure we do our part to protect the NHS and our country as well as others too. Also it meant a lot to me that people encouraged me to still create content as it helps to provide a distraction or escapism even if it's just for a moment because it's not easy to adjust to a new way of living until things get back to normal again as we don't know when that will be.

Thanks for understanding as many of you feel what I'm feeling at the moment just isolated but at the same time creating content helps keep me creative and busy. You learn things everyday and even more so doing something you love can have an impact on others to inspire others during this difficult time....
