The incomparable elegance of Michele Miglionico’s Haute Couture reveals itself through the high-quality materials, the precious trimmings, the fluent and soft shapes of the cocktail and evening dresses I had the pleasure to see. On the occasion of the Black & White Luxury Fashion Show 2011 – for the second time in Bari on 12 - 13th of November – the Butterfly Agency, which organizes awesome fashion events with an expert staff, gave to anyone who wanted, in the prestigious location of the Sheraton Nicolaus Hotel, the possibility to see Miglionico’s masterpieces, whom are appreciated all over the world.
The guest of honor on Sunday was Stefania Bivone, Miss Italy 2011, whom I met and whose kindness and liveliness contributed to make the experience unforgettable for me. In company with Mimì Colonna, the official hairdresser of Miss Italy, the Miss participated the event. She had been the first to model on the catwalk, followed by the other beautiful models, wearing the twelve creations of the latest collection by the milanese fashion designer. White, black, gold and, above all, red dominated the scene, eye-catching Swarovski elements and delicate lace embellished the dresses.
After the fashion show, while some great dancers were entertaining the crowd with a burlesque performance at the first floor of the hotel, I had the chance to take a look at unique hand-made jewelry by the brand “Il tocco di Minerva”, romantic printed bags by the genius of “Gianni Miniello for Jais”, original and refined dresses from the Venette Waste’s atelier and much more.Materials, accessories for interior design, perfumes, shoes, jewels had been perfect novelties and examples of high quality, which “made in Italy” reaches out for. Desires have no limits.
