Our fashion director Simone and I have just landed back in our city after a few days in Milan, one of my favorite cities, for Fashion Week.

The last few years I’ve been lucky enough to attend quite a lot of fashion shows for work. My god, I still remember how anxious I was the first time I got to attend one, seated somewhere in the third aisle in the back. I was sold. Read more.
Mary Katrantzou’s shows are always divine since she always transports you to some mystical fairytale world. Coveting a front row ticket is exceptionally hard, so I was happy I was able to drop by backstage Read more.
Yesterday you could read all about life backstage at Preen. This backstage visit took place on the exact same day. The rush and thrill of London Fashion Week luckily made me forget that I had been getting out of bed at 6 AM every morning and Paul Smith was yet another adventure on my list of things to do. Read more.
In my previous Paris diary I wrote about meeting up with my old Marie Claire colleague Simone Dernee and how the two of us have spent countless amounts of fashion weeks running from one show to another. We were a perfect fashion season team… Read more.
Amayzine’s been keeping very busy, all in the name of world domination, and so last Saturday I boarded a plane to London, while some of my other co-editors were beating off their New York jetlag. MAC Cosmetics invited me to nose around backstage at a couple of shows during London Fashion Week and to interview Charlotte Olympia and Ellie Goulding about their newest collaboration with this fabulous makeup brand.

For those who have been staying up to date with all the latest shows, here are some of the faces you are bound to have seen numerous times the past week and guaranteed to see all the way through to Paris.

You can kind of compare fashion parties to weddings; all the right ingredients are there (stunning location, everyone suited up, drinks, music) but people never really get wild. At weddings it’s pretty much because the guests list is devised of guests that might have never even met each other. Read more.
Oh oh oh Fashion Week, the most hectic time of the year, where anybody who is anybody and even anybody who is nobody is suddenly in the picture. Compris? Fashion Week and Instagram go hand in hand and it’s great and all cause it keeps you in the loop of all the shows… Read more.

Where one (such as myself for example) loves New York, the other swears by Milan. Meanwhile the real fashion followers can’t live without their annual dose of Paris. Style and taste are debatable topics, but the figures never lie. So I’ve clearly laid them all out for you. And what do you know? My favorite came out on top. Read more.
It’s that time of the year again when Europe is starting to buzz and bubble with fashion. From the Men’s fashion week in Milan to the Haute Couture shows in Paris and this week Berlin was Europe’s fashion capital kicking off their summer edition of Berlin Fashion Week on Tuesday.

We’re back in Amsterdam! And I’m suffering from a Fashion Week fever; a runny nose, hot and cold flashes and my head is spinning. It must have been caused by my hefty 13-hour schedule of running around all day and sitting down to work on my laptop afterwards. But boy did I have fun! I still owe you a report of the last few days, so off we go. Read more.
You couldn’t have missed it, I practically screamed it from the rooftops: last Saturday I had the privilege of interviewing Doutzen Kroes. As you know Doutzen is the face of Samsung and this weekend they launched the new S6, with the famous Paris Fashion Week as a witness. Before this grand spectacle, which I discussed here quite thoroughly, I was allowed to sit opposite of Doutzen and ask her a few questions. This is how it went. Read more.
And there you were thinking we were done in Paris after yesterday’s Chanel spectacular. Not just yet. After The Tuesday (taken up by Chanel, Valentino and McQueen) comes The Wednesday with Miu Miu and especially… Vuitton. Read more.
