Chic’s gorgeous Roberta Pecoraro gives us a rundown of her crazy last month of fashion week. From New York to Milan and all the details in between. Read full Catch up below.
Roberta Pecoraro –
Best moment from Fashion Month?
I had so much fun jumping on the back of a Vespa to get from one show to the next!
Italian being your background, what is your favourite part about coming back to visit?
I absolutely love the food and wine culture in Italy!
What are your daily essentials for fashion week?
Always wear comfortable shoes because you end up running around the city all day.
What were some of the greatest moments from the Zimmermann Resort 18′ show in New York?
I loved how unexpected it was. I suppose I was at the right place at the right time and became lucky enough to cast for their show. I had the best time walking out on that runway, the Zimmermann collection was absolutely beautiful!
Starting in New York and then heading to Milan, what do you love about the differences between the two cities?
I love how different the buildings and streets are between the two cities. Milan is full of little pebbled alley ways and antique architecture whilst NY has everything on a larger scale with sky scraping buildings.
Your favourite café nook you found while you were away?
In Milan, my friends and I found an amazing Italian restaurant along the Navigli called Napoli 1802. We kept going back for their pizza with ricotta stuffed crust!!!
What is the first thing you will do once you return home?
I usually go out for breakfast. Breakfast in Italy is quite different from the Aussie breakky so I usually crave a good smashed avo or an acai bowl.
A Chic exclusive interview
Jet setting around the world the last month, the beauty Brooke Durrant catches up with Chic recapping some of her favourite moments from the fashion week circuit.
Read full catch up below.
Brooke Durrant –
Where have you been travelling to over the last Fashion Month circuit?
New York, Milan & Paris!
What was one of your favorite shows?
Definitely Comme des Garcons! It was such a dream to walk this seasons show!
The most hectic backstage moment?
The most hectic moment happened backstage in Milan at Francesco Scognamiglio! Ellen von Unwerth introduced herself to me and took a boomerang which she later posted to her insta! She is someone I really admire and look up to in the industry and having the opportunity to chat with her was definitely something I’ll never forget!
With a whirl of street style photographers everyday what’s your favourite outfit you put together running two and from shows?
You’ll almost always catch me in an oversized hoody or T-shirt and docs! I’m big on comfort, especially when running around for castings, fittings and shows!
Your favourite look of the season?
I loved that there was a clear texture and layer play this season! Y Project had so many killer pieces as did Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent and Rick Owens! But I think it would be hard to deny Comme des Garcons and that epic show! It took texture and layering to a whole new level! Wearing art pieces! It was definitely my favourite look I wore and my favourite show!
When you are not at castings or shows what is your ideal situation while on the circuit?
Hanging out with my friends and trying to immerse myself in whichever city I’m in! I like to steer clear of the typical tourist way of experiencing a city and op for a more authentic experience (which can be difficult with English as my only language, but the challenge is fun and comedic at times!)
