If you follow Fashion Studio Magazine on Instagram, you probably heard about our trip to London and Milan in September and collaboration with luxury Canadian brand Koda Nivoli.

Since my first meeting with a charismatic designer Ksenija Dias two months ago, Koda Nivoli handbags evolved into celebrity must-have pieces featured in fashion editorials, sold at trendy boutiques, and spotted at various events such as TFI SS17 Press & Buyers Tradeshow or Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

London Fashion Week

Getting ready for London Fashion Week required a lot of planning ahead. When all my travel arrangements were finalised, I started looking for a versatile handbag that would not only match my fashion week outfits, but also fit perfectly on top of my rolling luggage. 

Fashion-forward designs by Koda Nivoli seemed like a perfect match. Made from the finest materials, Koda Nivoli bags feature unique details, have generous compartments and are spacious enough for all the necessities. 

BIANCA tote was big enough to hold my laptop and carry daily essentials: makeup, show invitations, phone, small camera, press releases etc. It looked great with my favourite red dresses, black & white prints, and silver accessories

During my busy stay in London - filled with fashion shows, meetings, and fabulous after parties - I managed to find time to visit some of my favourite shopping spots, attend London Fashion Film Festival, and explore the stylish neighbourhoods of East London - Hackney and Shoreditch.

Fashion Scout, the UK's largest independent showcase for emerging and established design talent during London Fashion Week, was one of the highlights of my London trip. The designers that caught my attention included Angel Chen, Anja Ljubinkovic, Billie Jacobina, Han Wen, and David Ferreira.

Welcome to Milan!

Milan, one of my favourite European cities, proved to be as interesting as usual. Fantastic food (and coffee!), sunny weather, and super friendly people - it all made me feel at home.

My favourite shows included Gucci, Alberta Ferretti, ANTEPRIMA, Cristiano Burani, and Japanese designer Atsushi Nakashima.

Once again, Koda Nivoli handbag proved to be my favourite fashion week accessory and managed to grab the attention of stylish Italian girls.

It was a great feeling to carry a handbag that was not only eye-catching, but also elegant and sophisticated at the same time. And what's most important, it got noticed even in global fashion capitals like London and Milan!

After attending London and Milan Fashion Weeks, I couldn't wait to get some rest!

At the end of September, BIANCA tote was also a perfect addition to my fall wardrobe during a short stay in Krakow, Poland.

One of the best features of Koda Nivoli handbag was the ability to match almost any outfit and look amazing with both summer and fall clothes. It was also easy to keep my stuff organised thanks to several inside pockets (card pocket, cell phone pocket, and zipper pocket) and detachable mini wallet / coin purse.

If you are interested in Koda Nivoli products, don't forget to visit their official website and check out BIANCA tote featured in this article. Stay tuned for our exclusive interview with Ksenija Dias (coming soon).

See you in London & Milan next year! :)
