Walking into the tent complex, I was overcome by the atmosphere. The Salvatore Ferragamo cocktail pre-party was held in the Samsung lounge, where copious amounts of champagne, swanky mixed drinks and bottled water were available to anyone with a ticket to the show. Through the flood of ultra-hip, in-the-now fashionistas, there were the select few with a real sense of style and killer outfits. Regarding those who subscribed to the ‘popular’ trends, many carried their new Ferragamo Vitello Demi shoulder bags (the apparent bag of the night).

After mingling and drinking in the almost-too-loud lounge, we were ushered to our seats to prepare for the Ferragamo spring/summer 2007 ready to wear show. The show began 15 minutes late, as fashion shows tend to do, but the show was well worth the wait. The models sported a safari-chic look, complete with sun-kissed makeup and wind-blown hair. The most popular looks were mini-dresses with a natural waist or fitted blouses with and A-line skirts, belted at the waist. Although the clothes were mostly in shades of beige, light banana and pea green, the large handbags were more brightly and vividly colored. The show ended with a bang when the Men’s ready-to-wear designer Massimilian Giornetti walked out to a roaring crowd.

I can’t wait to see what tomorrow’s shows bring!
