The World’s Leading Cities For Fashion

Valentino Spring 2015 Valentino Spring 2015

As well as the major fashion shows, there are many other smaller fashion events that take place in cities all over the world. Fashion Week takes place twice a year, when designers show their collections to buyers, the press and the general public during a stunning, star-studded event on the catwalk. Internationally, the press talk about ‘’The Big Four’’, though this is more like five. The world’s leading cities for fashion are Milan, New York, Los Angeles, Paris, and London.


Arguably the most famous of them all, Milan Fashion Week is held semi-annually in February/March and September/October. Designers from Milan include Roberto Cavalli and Moschino; Italian fashion brands such as Gucci, Versace, Prada, Valentino and Armani have their headquarters in the city; and Milan is renowned for its upscale fashion district, the quadrilatero della moda and prestigious shopping streets.

Start Your Tomorrow Today



“Tomorrow, you promise yourself, things will be different, yet, tomorrow is too often a repetition of today.” – James T. McCay

We keep procrastinating & postponing the really important things in life to tomorrow. But this tomorrow almost never comes. We keep tackling mundane issues on a daily basis putting the more important things at bay to be looked at tomorrow. Our view is so short sighted that we are never able to look at the bigger picture. And prioritizing is a quality a lot of us do not posses. Then one day before our tomorrow comes, we meet our end. My Dad always told me to identify my Everest (my goal) and start working towards it from day zero (today). He told me that I would often fall and stumble on the way, but if the peak was my goal – I would reach it one day. He said that I…

Recipe for a Great Book Club

IMG_5014This week was actually rather busy for me, as I’m improving my Expat social calendar weekly. I started a Book Club here in my neighborhood and I hosted the first meeting. We read the book, “The Miniaturist”, and I have to admit it was not as good as I had hoped. It had everything to make it great, with a historical and lovely setting, a promise of mystery and intrigue, and promising complex characters, but it all fell short. To me, the book seemed like it touched on everything but fully developed little.

However, it gave us great discussion points, and as we had women in attendance from South Africa, Scotland, Sweden, Canada and the USA, we all brought our own experiences.

I wanted to make it special and reflect the setting of the book, so I made bookclub cupcakes, decorated the table with books, put up an Amsterdam house…
