Milan Fashion Week AW 2018 | Charming Chanel Joan Elkayam Collection

Fashion week milan

After days of deliberating what angle to take on my experience at the recently concluded Milan Fashion Week A/W edition, I decided to tell it exactly how I experienced it. 

The runway show opened with a dreamy song pouring over the speakers. I felt the goosebumps rise and I was immediately taken to lalaland. I fixated my eyes on the aisle, with my phone held high in the air – ready to capture.

She walked down the aisle, looking like she just walked right out of the song pouring from the speakers. I instantly felt connected to the music and style.

It had just begun, but I could tell I would love her collection. Moreso because I’m a fanatic of such tune – and I loved what I saw.

The atmosphere was set ablaze with innocence, elegance, modernity, and chicness. It was such a surreal mix of fact and fantasy. 

Chanel Joan Elkayam named her collection “Nonna”, featuring a collection of cocktail dresses, wedding gowns, party outfits and corporate pieces.

Chanel’s designs prove beyond doubts she’s a bundle of talent. And when I finally met her after the show, I could tell she was a sweet soul too. 

I must say that I particularly love the blend of colours, simplicity and the realism of the designs.

Just if you are wondering if I had some designs I particularly loved, yes I did! 

It was a great evening all together, I left feeling overly satisfied and my senses pleasured. My only wish was that I arrived earlier to snatch a front seat!
