Before taking our villa on Lake Como, Steve and I spent three days in Milan enjoying Fashion Week. The city was a buzz with excitement. There were fashion shows in public places throughout the city by young, unknown designers showing their collections. Shows were every hour and hundreds of people would congregate around the stages. At the Galleria, the stage was in the center of a huge atrium, underneath the glass canopy. In between shows it was such a treat to window shop and see all the gorgeous clothes. Armani, Prada, Escarda, Etro, etc. were all there!
