Incredible Encounter – Interview with Stephanie Burkhalter@Burkhalter Couture in Milano (Part 1) & Paraiso Purse Giveaway

When: July 22, 2013

Where: Burkhalter Couture studio in Via Tortona, Milano

Who: Fashion blogger Vicki Victoire (Gwen Vikkey Miao) from Hong Kong, designer/founder of Burkhalter Couture Stephanie Burkhalter from Geneva

Life is full of miracles! A fashion blogger who falls in love with the ecstatic design by an exceptionally gifted designer who is a thousand miles away at first sight when stumbling onto her website by chance finally met the real person and sat face to face with her in front of the camera to chat about fashion and passion in life. If it is not a miracle, I do not know what it is. That blogger was me. On a typical beautiful sunny morning of Southern Europe, I arrived at the studio of the Swiss couture designer and founder of Burkhalter Couture, Stephanie Burkhalter located in Milano’s trendiest Tortona district (I realized that I have been there two years ago at FashionCamp Milano 2011) with a thrill of anticipation. Thinking about being the first Asian blogger to conduct an exclusive live interview (4 parts total) with this emerging celebrity loved designer and being able to see with my own eyes and dress my body up in her spectacular and dynamic collection, my excitement was beyond words, wow! I bet you must have tons of questions about Stephanie Burkhalter, like how did she start her couture designer career? What was her inspiration seeking trip to Panama resulting in the launch of the dazzling, colorful and totally unique Paraiso Collection like? How did she feel about her Summer Night Dress being worn at the Oscars 2013? It is said that a video is worth a thousand words. I let you watch the video and find out all the answers yourself. Just click play, sit back and enjoy!
