Fashion in Milan’s Orto Botanico edible garden
June 21, 2011
As part of the Milan men’s fashion week that I am covering, I went yesterday evening to the presentation of Italian designer Massimo Alba in the Orto Botanico of Brera, a very old edible garden. The Orto Botanico is like an island surrounded by buildings as it is located right in the centre of the city.
Massimo Alba’s spring-summer 2012 collection was displayed in the garden like scarecrows or hanged on fences or on drying lines. Musicians from La Scala academy were playing violin, oboe or trombone in several areas. Candles were lit as the sun was slowly leaving the garden…
Nice to be away from the madness of the catwalks for a while!
