Milan day trip #2 – oh the things you will see during fashion week!

This week has gone by really fast.  As soon as we got back from Berlin Monday morning we had to jump right back into studio and finish our final analytiques for project 4.  This was a group project, and I worked with Emily and Bryan.  I think we worked very well as a group, and the end project was fantastic!

Thursday we took our second day trip to Milan with Guidi.  Luckily we had no rain or snow this time.  We started off by going to the Novecento museum, which is the futurist artists museum.  This ties into what we are doing in studio right now so it was very interesting.

Next we went to the Castello Sforzesco.  This was a really cool 14th century castle in the middle of the city.

Then we went to the Trianale Museum.  While we were at the Museum, there was a fashion event going on.  There were a ton of models and important people walking around and paparazzi everywhere. Some of the things these people were wearing was absolutely ridiculous. I wish I would have taken pictures!

On the way back to the train station we walked through a newer area of town called Porta Nuova, near the UniCredit building.  This area was filled with really cool modern architecture.

Friday night it the infamous Villa Party.  We’re all so excited that we can hardly focus.  We’ve already cleaned out all the furniture from studio and for the past two days Christina and Lucia, along with their husbands and families, have been cooking some amazing food for the party.  This whole villa smells amazing!  I’m super excited for a weekend off from traveling.  It will be really nice to just relax in the villa with everyone.
