Milan, the fashion capital of the world, comes alive each February as it hosts one of the most anticipated events in the fashion industry – Milan Fashion Week. This year, from February 22 to 26, I had the privilege of immersing myself in the glamorous world of high fashion, where creativity knows no bounds. My journey took me to the Linenapelle fair event and a spectacular gathering at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Piazza del Duomo, both of which left an indelible mark on my fashion-loving soul.

My Milan Fashion Week experience kicked off with a visit to the Linenapelle fair event. This fair is a mecca for anyone with an interest in leather and textiles, showcasing the finest materials that designers worldwide use to craft their creations. As I stepped into the fair, I was immediately struck by the palpable energy and excitement that filled the air.
