I would like to say thanks to the blogger who said, “We don’t see you on the site, We don’t know who you are”. I did not think anyone would be interested in knowing me by face. Apparently I was wrong and I would like to say thanks so much for the self esteem boost. Never have I been treated so well in a group of people. Especially in fashion.
In the course of 3 days I met and interviewed edgy, grunge designer Neil Barrett and was autographed by Giuseppe Zanotti. I say I was autographed because I was! I am getting his signature tattooed on. I met famed fashion bloggers that are read all over the world there. I met Eva Cavalli who offered to replace my lost phone and I was hosted high life style by Luisa Via Roma owner, Andrea Panconesi.
Seeing in the flesh, Caroline from Caroline’s Mode made me a little nervous. I got a little fangirlish (only for a second though) on Daniel from Stockholm Streetstyle. That is one of my most inspirational fashion sites. I met, for only moments really, Andy from Style Scrapbook and Chiara from The Blonde Salad but they were seen everywhere. There are so many more that I am not remembering (I am sorry for that).
While at the Cavalli Club Dinner the second night, my brand new droid pulled a disappearing act so all of my images from there are missing. It’s a shame because that was where I founded some new relationships with bloggers Marie and Lotte from A Fashion Tale, Diane from Perfectism, Zarko from Design Scene and Sandra from Sandra’s Closet. Also, I met Cindy from Come Over To The Darkside – We Have Candy and Camilla of Garotase Stupidas. OH! And NELS! He is so darn dandy! I met Nels of Stylites!
Throughout this event, I made new friendships and changed my perception of myself. I learned that I am different and it’s wonderful, I’m not skinny (well I knew this) but that it’s okay, and that the sunshine I carry around spreads.
I would like to give a huge Thanks to Luisa Via Roma, Saba & Camilla for inviting Denimology.com to take part in this amazing experience. I also want to thank the head honcho-wonderful guy-my amazing employer Andy for letting me, in place of himself, attend this event.
You can see all the images I took during the party and after party here on the Denimology Facebook. There were just WAY too many to put on our homepage and I could not decide which ones to use. I downloaded them in high resolution so you can snag the ones you like.
