Milan fashion week roundup

Second outfit in Milan:  ASOS pelum skirt £55Whistles merino crew £95, Gucci shoes and Prada clutch
Aside from a brief stint in 2005, my fashion week duties have just included London and Paris - never Milan - which at times felt a bit weird considering I'm Italian, I love Italian fashion and I could help the rest of the Red fashion team translate the restaurant menu... So this was in fact my first season in Milan, and what a season it was.

Outfit trials- middle Whistles Pelt Print Silk Dress (£350) that got lots of interest
Packing was nerve racking, I felt the extra pressure of wanting to look good in my home country: would  Italians like colour and print? Or should I stick to a pared-back monochrome palette? I went for the latter including my J.Crew pony skin pencil skirt, Whistles Pelt Print Silk Dress and ASOS pelum skirt as hero items. I also wore my crazy faux fur Prada clutch which interestingly was loved even by my most minimal colleagues!

With Nicola Rose, Red's Fashion and Creative Director at Marni
Landing in Milan, I've never felt less like a local: my studded Louboutin slippers suddenly looked too 'street' and my low-key undone hair felt decidedly 'unpolished'. It did make me wonder, have I become British? Probably...
