Ever wondered what it takes to prepare for a week in Italy's fashion capital? Or what you get to see, visit and eat during Milan Fashion Week? Well, wonder no more as we had super-influencer Linda Tol on hand to take us through her exciting MFW diary. From celebrating her birthday with cake and ice cream (well, how else would you suggest?), to sitting front row at the shows and running around the streets of Milan in the most dreamy ensembles (seriously, their street style is scorchio), we were privy to a glimpse of Tol's incredible week—and so are you! Click through our gallery of Tol's Milan Fashion Week diary.
"A snapshot of my Milan Fashion Week wardrobe. I took this photo on the first day. Here the rack is still organised. After two days my entire apartment turned into a wardrobe."
"The first outfit of the week. Photographed after the No.21 show."
"Italians do it better. Although I'm not Italian, I feel like it! Photographed with my squad after the Max Mara show. "
"Delicate silks, big sleeves and fine-knit loose panel dresses in playful prints, free-flowing silhouettes and relaxed cuts at Sportmax."
"Accidentally matchy-matchy with YoYo Cao."
"On top of my wish list are the J.W.Anderson ruffle boots. I photographed these beauties during the opening of the new boutique So Milano. It's a concept store, and it's first guest is, of course, Mr J.W.Anderson."
"From ruffle shoes to champagne and powdery notes at Michael Kors. I hosted the Michael Kors Wonderlust perfume launch at the boutique in Milan."
"Cupcakes, cakes, cookies, shoes and bags. Breakfast with accessories designer Paula Cademartori."
"Exaggerated shoulders define the overall menswear-inspired theme. Fine plissé pleats in shades of peach, light blue and yellow at Jil Sander."
"Gelato for breakfast. Yes, because it was my birthday."
"Celebrating my birthday with my lovely friends during the party of my best friend Alessandro Enriquez."
"Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini of Attico know what we women want. I love and want it all."
"Redefining shapes of visual layering, boxy silhouettes, a wide variety of colours and prints. And not to mention the bag across the waist. I'm talking about Marni, of course. One of my favorite shows so far."
"Bally! I couldn't get to sleep the prior night before the presentation. I'm a big Bally fan and was super excited about the S/S 17 collection. Pablo Coppola didn't disappoint me."
"My girl squad at the Tommy x Gigi Milano event."
