Celia Abernethy- founder and editor Milanostyle.com
Originally from NY, I came to walk the runways of Milan but then I never left! I worked for some of the top Italian fashion houses like Gucci, Valentino, Armani, Max Mara, and many more. My runway days are long gone but my love for fashion, design and shopping in Milan has stayed with me! I started Milanostyle.com in 2002 and I am proud to say that last year in 2016, we had 75,000 visitors -that’s enough people to fill the Olympic stadium in Rome!
I share my discoveries of my travels and experiences in Italy and beyond.
After a modeling career and studying art and graphics at the Castello Sforzesco Arte & Messaggi school, I began developing and promoting websites for several companies. Projects and clients include Bottega Veneta, Eric Egan Interior Design, The British Consulate, Luxury Rent Sardinia, HBA Interior Design as well as The Informer and Easy Milano. Milanostyle.com is a combination of past experiences and new continual discoveries.
I offer an insider’s view to Milan
There’s lots of information in the site that you won’t find in a guide book or at the tourist center. In the search for information about Milan on the internet, I started Milanostyle.com. I am an avid business card collector and diary scribbler, so putting it on the web seemed like the next step.
I get alot of write in messages and I try to answer any questions for visitors to Milan. Most questions are about good restaurants, hotels, shopping or sightseeing in Italy’s fashion capital Milan. See the FAQ section. If I don’t know an answer I’ll look for it or find another source to direct you to. Once a man wrote to me asking what time sunset would be on the day he arrived because he was planning on continuing his journey by bike and didn’t want to ride in the dark!
