first night in milan: crazyness. like i told you here, 55DSL flew me into town to be guest at the premiere of “beyond mountains, more mountains”. the movie was directed by the trio “canada” from barcelona, who are absolutely genius. we saw the movie at piccolo teatro di milano as part of the milano film festival. canada created a short movie about a girl and a guy, conquering the world and looking for something. i won’t tell you what it is because you need to watch it yourself.
anyway, after the screening, i got to know the whole PR / marketing / creative team of 55DSL at a cosy sit down dinner. let me tell you one thing: i have NEVER in the fashion world met such funny, down-to-earth, easy-going and wonderful people as the team behind 55DSL. i had so much fun and felt like sitting with a group of friends i’ve known forever. with a super-huge belly i made my way to the after-party at spazio concept, were we had some drinks and a little out of control dance-party.
my first night in my new hometown milan has been wonderful, exciting and so much fun. thanks to 55DSL for making it all possible.
today’s the day. i am moving to milan. it’s been very hard not to become emotional with this huge change in my life. i know, milan’s not buenos aires or sydney, but it’s still a move to a different life, culture and people. the last time i went abroad i was 17 and i went to the US for 6 months. right before i moved i realized all the stuff i loved about home, like i do now. i love my friends, my family, this town, the life quality, the parks and my lovely apartment. but the past months i have also realized what i don’t like or what i don’t want in my life. i have gone through a break-up, did jobs i didn’t like and met people i would rather not meet again. i have been in very superficial situations and met people that are fake on the out- and inside. believe me, my life hasn’t always been that happy and i have gone through many disappointments. i have learned a lot of things i don’t want in my life. and that’s probably the most important thing to learn in life: knowing what you’d rather exclude from it. because then knowing what you want is much, much easier. and i know that a lot of things i want are in vienna, with the people i love and that i laugh with so much. there’s a hand full of people that i am going to miss and it really hurts to leave them.
but i am SO excited for a new environment, meeting new people, get inspired, learn more, travel and of course: keep blogging. right now vienna’s becoming too small and confining for what i am reaching for in life. it’s time to leave.
you might remember when i posted about a quick trip to milan here. i couldn’t tell you yet why i was going there, but now i can… drum rolls…
i will start a master in fashion photography beginning with october. i can’t believe it all worked out and i can finally start looking for a flat and leave vienna for a year. the past months have been quite difficult for me and having this very positive message in my mailbox did relieve a lot of stress from me. i am so excited to keep you updated on the many things that are going on in milan – it might not be the prettiest but definitely one of the most vibrant cities.
