ciao milano...


this is actually happening... today i board a big jet plane and head to the land of fettuccine, vino rosso, dolce and gabbana, sergio rossi and versace. i'm heading to milan for designer rugs, to the international furnishing fair: salone internazionale del mobile to see what the world has to offer for our interiors of tomorrow. as well as attending the fair, i'm told the streets are full of inspiration and the italian showrooms are beyond belief. i'm grateful for this opportunity and to be travelling with my friend and colleague, monica - along with numerous other industry sydneysiders all ready to experience what milan has to offer.

its a short stay of only 5 days - and the weather looks a little chilly. i'm hoping that my suitcase is packed full of the essentials. if not, there is always time for a little italian shopping...

plane essentials; i'm going to be up in the air for sometime and need to ensure that i'm as prepared and comfortable as possible...

my big coat should get me through the chilly days and those long boots were made for walking...

there is plenty of parties that we'll be attending. i'm thinking; chic, black and leather are on order...
ciao milano!
