Do you want to come in Milan and add something special to your Milan tour? If fashion is only your starting point and you want to try something special, then let yourself be seduced by the advices of Hetty Bankamp, a fashion-and-tailoring expert who works from years for one of the long-established atelier in Milan, Fontana Couture. From nearly 100 years, Fontana Couture is located in the heart of the fashion district in Milan, the so-called Quadrilatero. The long-time tradition of the atelier is easily explained by its idea of fashion, expressed by classic bon ton collections which never get out of fashion. For this reason, who, better than Hetty, could show you the innest places in the city for your Milan tour?
According to Hetty, unlike London, Paris or Rome, Milan is quite small and, for this reason, not so stressful and chaotic. The area of Quadrilatero, the Milan fashion district, is the best example for that. Originating from a cross of four main streets, Quadrilatero is the place to be for fashion victims. Here they can choose between the best and refined ateliers or the well-known shops of fast and smart fashion. But Milan is not only clothes, shoes and bags. Here is a list of the places that show best the real spirit of the city and, for this reason, the Hetty’s loved ones.
