@ milanounica

Yesterday I went to heaven... 
well, I've been to  MilanoUnica
the textile trade fair being host in Milan twice a year.
Pretty much like heaven, right?
The September edition is Fall/Winter, 
in this case about 2012/13 trends.
What can I say?

I was busted several times trying to take pictures, and finally gave up and came home with just lots of extremely confused notes, and who knows what I'll be able to remember... try to explain to these guys that all I wanted was keeping track of inspirations for my crafty projects and not trying to copy a "Made in Italy" production in the far East... whatever.

Anyway, after a whole day looking at fabrics, buttons, buckles, trims... you get home and feel sorry for yourself for not having all these beauties in your {already too big} stash.

Now all I want is go out and buy more. Darn!!!

Being a whole day in such an overwhelming place made my mind go in spinning mode.

--> What I saw {better, What I liked}
(no pictures, sorry, I really wanted to, but ... BUSTED!)
* Lot of laser cut: leather, silk, nylon.
* Jewel's tones: sapphire, ruby, emerald, amethyst.
* Brocades and Damasks
* Thick acrylic paint prints onto heavy knits
* Feathers and fur trimming
* Beads, sparkles, crystals
* Flowers and reptiles prints (all in once)

Well... if I'll be lucky I'll have some time to digest the massive amount of information and try to get out something nice!

xox, d.
