32. First day in Milan, I was missing Italy the way I now miss Florence, my cat “Pussy” my parrot “Gold”, my monkey “Mac”, an 8 year old macaque.
I’ll have to tell you a separate story of all my animals. Today I will show you their photos and next time I will tell you about their lives and their habits.
I will amuse you and let you love the animals as I love them.
Lupo came to the airport to meet me, I guarantee you that it was very moving!
He was so excited to see me that he jumped on me yelping, crying with joy!
At home, Rosa, a tiny Yorkshire was waiting for me. She has a beautiful natural coat that reaches to the ground, all black with a head that fades to gray-beige.
A very rare color that makes her special. Sandra has made her a bow to keep her hair out of her eyes! Lupo and Rose are engaged, and I guarantee you that their love is platonic! Lupo weighs 50 kilos and Rosa only 2 kilos. I’ll have to make a film of them when they are fighting for a bone and put it on You Tube!
My apartment in Milan is a fun place. It is a large studio apartment that I divided with artistic glass screens, a computer table with mega monitors and a printer able to print my photos in various sizes!
Two giant pictures of my trip to the South Pole stand out on a wall of glass that separates the living room from the bedroom.
A round bed with a mega TV in front and many, many plush stuffed animals. It looks like the bedroom of a child.
I had a giant teddy bear made with real fur – my usual madness!
My zoo keeps me company – stuffed animals of all kinds all around me!
I live in the so-called fashion quarter a few meters from my boutique.
During Fashion Week it is not easy for me to leave home. I get mobbed by friendly fans of many nationalities who shop along this very important road famed for the most beautiful boutiques in Milan!
I try to be kind to all the people who ask me for a photo. There are so many of them. I often wonder what they do with all of the photos. Are there a thousand photos of me on Facebook?
Dear friends, tomorrow my fashion week starts. It will be a week of emotion and fatigue. I’m already nervous.
Every six months I have my exam with a great desire to pass with flying colors!
To create fashion and propose fashion is particularly difficult at this time. The young and the not-so-young know what they want. When I create I have to think about their desires!
Fashion is in the air, I have to capture it and make dreams a reality.
Fashion should make you dream!
Un bacio grande
I LOVE YOU
