Showrooms visit for press day text by Steefania Seoni, all photos Carlo Polisano for Hickey

Dear Diane, dear shaded viewers, It is always a pleasure to go to the press days where you get a chance to see the collections close up.  It is also a chance to see collections that do not show during Milan fashion week.

First stop:  Beside( thank you to Valerio Inella press pr)
