The Trevi Fountain - Per amore della moda

One of my most favourite places in the world, is the city of Rome.  And my most favourite place in Rome is the Trevi Fountain, but at night.

You can imagine my disappointment this week when I visited that I couldn't see all of the fountain or throw a coin into it as there was building work going on!!!  With no signs up to say why, it was a little frustrating to say the least.

And then I spotted on Instagram that Fendi had used it to showcase their Autumn/Winter collection for 2017 and to celebrate their brand being 90 years old - and so now that I know it was for Fashion, I don't mind!

Fendi have invested over £2m since 2014 in restoring the Trevi Fountain, and so it only seems fitting that they can then use it.  The full film below not only highlights the best features of my favourite fountain, but the see-through catwalk floor makes the models look like they are floating on water.  The show is stunning, the only thing I didn't really enjoy was the music, I think it was a little odd in places.

Model Kendall Jenner leads the girls at the beginning of the show, the collection itself is beautiful. Fendi renowned for their fur and leather, include a lot of fur trimmings alongside a continual floral theme. I love the colours of pink and red flowers mixing with a variety of green floating fabrics - a wonderful collection for next Winter.  Each model wears thee amazing high-heeled boots, I particular like the white ones, very sexy and different.

I also like the cloaks, if you watch the film all the way through, my favourite is the first model that comes on for the final walk through - it's absolutely stunning.

What a very special night - and all for the love of fashion!
