Last night Milan was electric as Vogue Italia and all the city's major fashion players contributed to this year's global fashion initiative Fashion's Night Out. Giorgio Armani, Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared2 and Roberto Cavalli were not only on hand but mingled comfortably among the throngs of guests as their flagship boutiques threw elaborate cocktail parties to encourage shoppers to splurge on the season's hottest items. Champagne, cocktails and canapès were abundant as were the smooth rhythms of Djs flown in for the evening. The mood was super energetic, with lots of smiles and hugs and kisses (many Milanese are just returning from the August holiday). Let's hope all the joviality translated into great sales for the industry. But hey, there's nothing like flying home to a big sprawling fashion block-party. :-)
