I'm off for another whirlwind fashion junket tour of Europe this Monday, starting with Barcelona (080 Barcelona Fashion has been moved up to January this year, much to the chagrin of my Parisian pals who are covering the Couture), then a jaunt to Rome where I will meet up with Diane (and Nunzia, above) for Alta Moda at Santo Spirito in Sassia & the opening of Fashion on Paper at Hadrian's Temple. After that, I'll be jetting back to Spain, but this time to a city I've never been to before: Valencia. I'll be attending their 3-day fashion "week" and then staying for a 2-day respite to take in some of the sites of what looks like a truly beautiful city. Look out for my fashion & travel reports on A Shaded View on Fashion (www.ashadedviewonfashion.com).
Adeu, arrivederci, adios, au revoir, later,
