Living in Milan as I do, fashion is very much a part of daily life. Here, where important fashion shows occur several times throughout the year, it's quite usual to see beautiful international models with their trolleys battling with the Italian language before they can understand that tickets can't be bought onboard trams and buses.
Valentino's Nightmare is carrying on in my Milan Fashion Week series and it aims at pointing out how very much the same of the same is dished up each year.
So called because Valentino is a fashion designer who loves frills and flowers. I've added some interest to the lower part of the dresses in homage to him, but I fear that he still wouldn't think much of my relatively plain dresses.
