My dear fashionistas!

 Last month, at the fashion week in Milan I had the chance to see Chanel Joan Elkayam A/W 2018 collection “Nonna”.

Chanel Joan Elkayam is the youngest fashion designer in fashion history who completed the big four fashion weeks by the age of 20 years old.

Her collection “Nonna” which she presented in Milan this year, was apparently inspired by her Jewish-Italian grandmother, who passed away a few months ago. The designer’s grandmother was forced to flee Tripoli in the 1940s due to the fear of fascism and the antisemitism imposed by Mussolini and Hitler during the Second World War. This collection was dedicated to her and her touching life story.

The designer used sensual fabrics, hand embellished with Swarovsky crystals and pearls in her pieces for the next cold weather season.

But the show wasn’t all glitz and glam: there were also casual pieces, designs with unusual, over-sized and asymmetrical cuts. The predominant colors were black, white, grey and beige.

My favorite pieces from the show were definitely the shining tulle dresses made of fine embroidery with pearls and precious stones.

The ethnic hebrew music has not gone unnoticed during the fashion show held in Milan. As it started I realized that the show was going to be impressive.

The collection was well-received by the public, with the audience bursting into loud applause as the fashion designer reached the runway at the end of the show.

    Hey, stanciudiana!

    Don’t you wish you could be Instagram cool?

    Well, today I will teach you the best way to amazingly change the way you Instagram.

    Imagine: it is Friday morning and you told yourself you’d hit the gym today.

    Roll over, check your cell.

    Navigate your way to Instagram.

    Youare surprised at what is waiting for you: Over 832 likes on a single one of your pictures! There, you can see a flurry of likes on your pictures–over 832 on a single photo alone.

    You put your super-duper soft slippers on and head to the kitchen for some tea. After putting on the kettle, you pull out your phone again.

    Presto! Another 63 likes.

    Buzz—a message pops into your inbox from a follower. They are asking you for advice on how you manage your food, and are congratulating you on your third month of hitting the gym.

    As you read it, you begin to smile. It is a really attractive person, and they love your posts.

    As you begin to write back, your phone buzzes again.

    It’s another message coming in. You glance up at the clock–almost time for the gym. You’ll have to reply later.
    Let’s stop the simulation there. People have a hard time achieving what they want in life. People can hardly force themselves to eat a good breakfast.

    My job is to take people from Instagram no one to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds foolish, but results don’t lie.)

    Imagine if you increased your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    Truth is, it’s not the most difficult thing in the world to get more. For example, all the old pros use our website.

    In just minutes after posting, we get your images piled with likes.

    The “Top Post” section, all of a sudden, doesn’t seem that far away.

    And because we love you, we made testing things out as simple as kitchen-cooled apple crumble:
    1. Click
    2. Enter in your Instagram username.
    3. The 3 pictures you posted last will receive 10 – 15 likes. Just like that.

    Being a regular on that page will accelerate your growth 10x, easy. You know where the answer to fame is. Now reach for it. Are you ready?

    Chow for now.
