Fendi finds a Home in Vienna

Fendi finds a Home in Vienna

Fendi, the Italian fashion brand that has been synonymous with luxury and elegance since its founding in Rome, has found a new home in Vienna, Austria.

This month, Fendi opened its first freestanding boutique in Vienna’s first district with an official inauguration ceremony and asked me if I would like to be part of it as a photographer.

It was a hard working day but I enjoyed every single moment of it. We began at 09:00 shooting with Carola Pojer from ViennaWedekind. At 12:00 we started shooting Vicky from Bikinis&Passports and Kathi from Ketchembunnies.

Our goal was to photograph the girls wearing pieces from the Resort 2017 Fendi collection with Vienna in the background. I had prepared ahead of time a list of the most photogenic places in the center of Vienna.

It’s not everyday that you get to photograph beautiful girls wearing beautiful stylish outfits. I look forward to many more opportunities like this one.

I can’t tell you enough how much I loved all the FENDI outfits we wore on that day. But mostly the iconic red and white skirt that I was wearing (ah, why can’t I dress up like this everyday?).

By the way, have you guys seen their fashion show that took place at Fontana di Trevi in Rome? If not, watch it here. It is pure magic.

The opening of the boutique is a significant event for the brand, as it marks their first flagship store in Austria.

Fendi finds a Home in Vienna. The new Fendi boutique in Vienna is nothing short of extraordinary. The space is flooded with natural light, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows. The clean, white walls are adorned with intricate gold details. The furniture is modern and sleek, yet still inviting. And, of course, the clothes are to die for. In short, it’s the perfect place to shop for luxury goods.

Jardin Majorelle Rue Yves Saint Laurent – another beautiful place to visit when in Morocco

I wrote a few words in my previous blog post and here, I can share some photos with you. Jardin Majorelle is not an easy place to photograph. The place is crowded and I personally don’t like having strangers in my photos.

It was also very hot and the sun was creating strong shadows and causing high contrasts, which is something that I don’t find very flattering in photography. Turns out your visit to Jardin Majorelle become a photography challenge…

For those reasons, we decided to visit Jardin Majorelle the day after for a second time, with the hope of finding less crowds and cooler temperatures. But it didn’t work out.

Jardin Majorelle Rue Yves Saint Laurent
Jardin Majorelle in Rue Yves Saint Laurent is truly a beautiful place to visit in Marrakesh. What you will find at Jardin Majorelle is: Blue walls, exotic plants and trees, fountains and vibrant colors, a bookstore, a boutique, the Berber Museum and the loveliest café ever where we spent about an hour and drunk something refreshing. I wish it won’t be long before I go back.

One week in Marrakesh

One week in Marrakesh was just perfect. I wouldn’t go for less. Of course, if you don’t have as much time at your disposal, then you can always go for less…I am just saying that at least one week is needed to enjoy this beautiful city.

I loved Marrakesh, its vibes and its colours. I was afraid that it would be a little bit dangerous for two girls to go there alone but when we got there I realized how wrong my initial worries were. There was chaos on the streets, of which I am not used to (because in Vienna there is order everywhere).

But other than that, there is absolutely no problem as long as you dress up correctly and you don’t do anything provocative. You should always be careful in the night or during the early morning, but during the day there is nothing to worry about.

We stayed at the hotel La Mamounia  which is very close to the Medina (old town of Marrakesh). We could reach the Medina either on foot or by taxi. However, my favorite mean of transport was the tuk tuk (auto rickshaw in English). That was so much fun.

I am afraid I am not able to give you all the Marrakesh insider tips and the hidden gems that you might be looking for. I only stayed there for one week, which was only enough time for the basics. However, I hope you still find the following tips and recommendations of mine helpful, so here we go:

  • Find a taxi driver from your hotel. They are usually very nice and helpful and they always say “Yes madam, yes madam”. If you are lucky enough to find someone who is as nice as our taxi driver was, he will show you around, he will drive you from one place to another, he will wait for you out of every monument, for as long as your visit lasts. And regarding the money, the service will be absolutely affordable. At the end of the day, we gave our own taxi driver more money than he asked for because he was just too kind and helpful.
  • Everybody told me: go to the Jardin Majorelle garden. But go early in the morning, at the time of the opening if possible. We didn’t manage to wake up early enough, although we wanted to. Jardin Majorelle is beautiful, but it’s way more beautiful without crowds and other tourists haha. And the cafe of the garden…oh my God!! So adorable!
  • Nomad & Le Jardin: favorite restaurants in Marrakesh. We went to Nomad two times and if we had more time in Marrakesh, we would go there every evening. The restaurant is just unbeatable, both food and environment. Ask to meet Karim, the manager of Nomad. We can’t forget how nice he treated us.
  • Although the Medina is way more interesting, I would suggest that you also look around the new city of Marrakesh called Guéliz.
  • Don’t miss the Bahia Palace

I miss the days and the nights in Marrakesh. They were made of pure magic and glitter. Generally, traveling out of Europe gives me the biggest happiness. With that being said, I am happy to announce that there is one more travel coming this week. I am flying to Dubai to meet my friend Michelle Karam from Travel Junkie Diary. She invited me to visit her, and then we fly together to the Maldives with Fly Dubai. Follow along on Instagram  and check the hashtag #travelwithTJD for updates.
