• P.A.R.T.Y. | Milan 2010.

    Posted on 5th May, by Dana Tomić Hughes in events + exhibitions, random fun. 1 Comment

    The very exclusive Wallpaper* Handmade party held at Brioni onVia Gesù… darling. Visitors were greeted by a dramatic installation in the courtyard of the Brioni house. Titled ’12,000 stitches’ and designed by London architects, Carmody Groarke, it paid homage to the craftsmanship it takes to create a single Brioni suit. 12,000 threads provided by Rowan were individually woven on to aluminium looms to create a sculptural celebration of the tailor’s art.


    Established & Sons are known for putting on fantastic and super popular parties. This party was no exception – held at La Pelota in Brera area, the same night as the Wallpaper* party {along with about a million other parties really}. Not many photos here though – turns out that my trusty photographer was a little bit dunk. Happy days.


    One of the most commonly asked questions that I’ve heard since coming back from Milan was – “How were the parties…? Do you have any photos…?” It seems people are more interested in how much I drank, rather then the installations that I saw. So I figured I better share party photos with you today.

    These are from three VERY different events. Yeah, no shit – I hear you say. The great thing about Milan is that there is something for everyone there, including the parties. You can be the judge of where you would have rather been during the design week.

    Party on Wayne.

    Party on Garth.

    Party on yellowtrace.

    The good ol’ Zona Tortona street party was completely mental. What I can say – I think the photos speak for themselves. Hilarious.


    And this is the result I got. True story. {Image credit - Dear Louis Vuitton by Jeff Hamda}
