Green gingham dress by designer Arthur Arbesser

From Vienna to Milan with Designer Arthur Arbesser

“I LOVE Vienna!” exclaims Arthur Arbesser. “I love it especially from afar”. The tousle-haired womenswear designer, who last September appeared at the finale of his Milan Fashion Week show in faded black jeans, matching T-shirt and trainers,spent his boyhood in the Austrian capital, before enrolling in fashion at Central Saint Martins. Following an offer to join Giorgio Armani’s atelier upon graduation, Arbesser upped and left for Italy. “The move from being a student in London to working in Milan was quite a shock. But after some months and a few too many Negronis, I started to love it here.”

Author Victoria Scott Interview

Author Victoria Scott Interview

When I first started writing, social media was a tool to network with other writers, and to research agents and publishers. But for the most part, authors could hide behind their laptops and write quietly. Today, having a strong social media presence is an enormous part of an author’s job.
