Thank you so much for all the amazing tips and recommendations I got for New York, London and Milan. Unfortunately I barely had time to try any of them (just another reason to go back soon again I guess) but I did have time for a little lunch (including dessert) at Pavé while in Milan, which I happily would like to pass on for anyone else planning a trip there. Tasty sandwiches, yummy pastries and a very delicious raspberry tart are a few of the things you can find at Pavé.
After a few days in London we were off to Milan, and how I had long for warmer weather and Italian food! Fashion Week in Milan turned out to be everything I had hoped for and more. The highlights during my time there, besides shooting even more photos with Nicole of course, were to meet Roberto Cavalli in person in his showroom (yes, he actually kissed me on the cheek!), to attend the Alberta Ferretti and Dsquared2 show and to discover Valentino‘s breathtaking showroom. I even got a few hours over to wander the city and to see a little bit more of Milan, during which I tried to eat as much gelato as possible! I mean, just because it’s fashion week it doesn’t mean that my ice cream cravings are gone…
I truly have to pinch myself when looking through my photos again. Getting to see the Alberta Ferretti show in real life for example was a dream come true for me since her collection back in 2006 was the one that originally sparked my interest for this whole fashion world. Did you see those green sparkly shoes from Valentino by the way? Those might just be my ultimate dream shoes! Even though our time in Milan was super stressful with meetings, running between showrooms, photo shoots and fashion shows it felt good to get a little taste of Italy once again!
After a few days in a rainy London Nicole and I headed off to Milan. Amazing weather, delicious Italian food and some of the most unbelievable fashion experiences awaited us. I still have so much to share with you all and I’m franticly going through all of my photos to keep you updated! But since it’s madness over here, shooting all day long, I’m running a little bit behind but hopefully you’ll enjoy the photos anyway.
Right now I’m back in my beloved Paris for the last fashion week of fashion month together with Nicole. If you want to see what I’m up to or scroll through more photos, you can have a look at my Instagram or my Facebook page.
Unfortunately our time in London was very short and over way too quickly. I really need to come back and explore the city, the food scene and all the great sights for a bit longer next time. But the time we did spend in London was absolutely perfect (even though it rained during almost every single minute). Nicole and I were welcomed by the lovely Peony and got to stay in her breathtaking apartment where we felt so taken care of and after some very hectic and intense days in New York we finally got the chance to wind down for a little while.
Despite the rain Nicole and I actually managed to shoot while there and this shoot has to be my favourite from London, even though the other one involves a red phone booth (I know, how cliché are we?). I certainly have a weak spot for light pastel colours and pretty roses!

Unfortunately we caught the typical London-weather during our stay for London Fashion Week. Rain and grey skies meant that my little camera didn’t get to see much outside of my bag but fortunately the iPhone camera comes in handy during times like this. Here’s a few hints of what I was up to in London. I want to go back already, but now we’re off to Paris!
Before we left New York both Nicole and I wanted to do a shoot with a typical New York background and what could be more New York than Times Square? Top that off with a little pretzel/hot dog stand on the corner and you get as much New York as you could possibly fit into a photo.
I’m really happy with how the photos turned out and I’m in love with Nicole’s black and white stripes against this very busy backdrop. If you want to see more photos from our shoot together you can visit Nicole’s blog, where you’ll also find outfit details.
Here’s a few snapshots from our time in New York during fashion week. It was way too short and we’ve both decided that we need to go back soon again! It sounds like such a cliché but New York just has a certain energy about it… Not to mention a million restaurants I’m still dying to try out, some of the best shopping in the world and so many places I would love to photograph.
This time has just flown by so quickly. I’m trying to take pauses every now and then in the middle of this craziness to let everything and all the experiences actually sink in, but it’s still hard to wrap my head around it all. I guess I have to go through my photos when all of this is over to realise what an amazing trip it has really been. But it’s not over yet! We’re still having a blast in Milan and then we’re on to Paris!
A Sunday ice cream together with Eva and Stefan while in New York during fashion week a couple of days ago. It was so yummy and the adorable little shop called Sundaes and Cones had so many interesting flavours. Even though I didn’t end up with a corn, wasabi or lavender flavour I was a pretty happy camper with my salted caramel and hazelnut.
Ever since I saw a photo of the Bow Bridge in Central Park for the first time, I’ve been wanting visit and when I shared my wish with Nicole we decided that this would be the perfect location for one of our shoots while in New York. The only problem with this lovely place though is that most of the time it’s absolutely packed with joggers, visitors and strollers admiring the beauty of the park. But thanks to a very early wake up call we ended up having the bridge to ourselves during an early morning. The light, the place and Nicole’s beautiful dress just made sense when put together.
It’s so hard finding the time to keep you guys updated about what’s going on over here. I truly apologise for the lack of updating and slow response to your comments and emails, bear with me please! If you want to see more photos and get more updates I suggest following along on my Instagram or Facebook page, since it’s so much quicker to update over there.
Here are a few Instagram photos I took while in New York! I miss that city already… A (super busy) week is not nearly enough time in the Big Apple. After New York Nicole and I flew over to London for a few days and now we’re currently in Milan! Wonderful weather, food and shows await us.
