10 dresses that will wow you: from Milan

No fashion week would be complete without some beautiful dresses to covet. They may be figure-hugging and sexy, they may be formed of the most delicate lace, they may be an explosion of tulle and embroidery… the matter is not their style nor even if you’d wear them, but rather whether they’re simply breathtaking to look at.

And so we kept an eye out during the spring 2014 fashion season of Milan for just some of those beautiful frocks. Because why wouldn’t you want to take a few minutes out to admire a pretty dress or 10?

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
