After New York, London, Tokyo, and Milan, tonight Rome as well will open its doors to Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, the yearly “happening” during which all the most fashionable shops will remain open till late. The city will be sparkling with events related not only to the fashion world, but art, music and culture too. Obviously here in Rome we can’t wait for it, and we are getting ready to look fabulous and unique for this special date!
Designers have created limited editions items that will be available tonight only, and many celebrities will attend, making it an absolutely glamorous event… The famous Italian shoe designer Cesare Paciotti will be in his boutique in Via del Babuino, meeting all the stylish ladies who are passionate about his creations . In the same street Missoni’s boutique will host a cocktail party with nothing less than a fortune-teller to entertain guests and passers-by! Cocktail party also at Pinko, where a limited edition bracelet collection will be presented. Another spot absolutely not to be missed is Kiko, the really popular Italian make-up brand , where clients will receive as a gift a mini make-up kit with eye liner, kohl and lip gloss.
I love Fashion’s Night Out as it’s a great way not only to celebrate style and everything that belongs to the glamorous world of fashion, but also because it is an excellent occasion to spend a night unlike any other, where everything seems magical and beautiful !
I am definitely looking forward to it!

Last chance yesterday to attend Alta Roma Alta Moda 2012 in Rome. This was the second annual appointment in Rome in order to celebrate the fashion week and the exceptional designers who were there presenting their work. After the big success back in January, the Italian capital got ready to be the perfect backdrop again for this event, which is now celebrating its 19th edition.
This summer edition started on the 8th of July and ended yesterday, giving a great opportunity for fashion lovers and journalists to meet several designers who showed their personal creations for the next fall-winter 2012-2013 collection.
Raffaella Curiel, Renato Balestra, Giada Curti, Sarli, Tony Ward are only some of the brands you were able to find at Alta Roma Alta Moda, with collections all inspired by laces, decorations, sequins, crystals, and details aimed at expressing elegance, charm and prestige. Fabrics too, of course, were as gorgeous as ever, contributing to add glamour and sensuality to the designers’ creations, for both night and day wear.
The two most classic colors, black and white, underline one more time luxury, especially when they are not combined together but paired instead with brown, orange, yellow, light blue and violet. Pleated trousers or knee-length skirts are two of our favourite designs among the creations presented in Rome, and we suggest them for the day. As far as it concerns the night, become then a sexy lady, wearing long dresses with split skirts. Your legs will be enhanced and you will just look like a diva !
