I recently travelled over to Milan to meet fashion and beauty blogger Angela Ricardo (aka Koreandoll). I took a cameraman in tow and we made a video about her recent #Switch to the Nokia Lumia 920 from the iPhone.
If you’ve not seen the video yet (90,000+ people already have, where have you been?) then please do check it out.
We had so much fun as Angela took us on a whistle stop tour of the unofficial fashion capital of the world; taking in the sights and sounds of a bustling inner city shopping district. We even had time to stop for some traditional Italian food (which Angela kindly took photos of, for her other part time hobby – food blogging).
On the trip we learned lots about how Angela used her Lumia 920 to capture fashion inspiration from some of the leading fashion designers on the planet and we also got a taste of her day-to-day life as a fashion blogger (satisfying her 55,000 + followers on Twitter and a community of fans across a wide range of social networks with regular fashion updates).
We started the day by taking the Milan Metro down to the famous Piazza del Duomo in the centre of the city, taking in some luxury brands along the way.
Duomo Square is an unbelievable place, rich with Italian architecture and we captured all of it with not only the film camera (as you’ll see in the video above) but also with the Lumia 920.
As the light started to fade we thought it would be a good idea to do a fashion shoot in front of the famous Duomo di Milano. Angela got her make-up professionally applied in a local retail store, changed her outfit and then gave us the signal that she was ready to go!
Crowds came to us from far and wide to see what we were doing and then everybody started to snap away with their digital cameras!
At night (to end the day) Angela took on us stroll around the famous outdoor markets to take in the wonderful bright colours of the fabrics and foods that inspire her work online.
A perfect end to an incredible day in Italy! We had so much fun with Angela, she was amazing company and knew so much about Nokia. She even coined the term ‘Re#Switch’ because she felt like she had never left Nokia, see for yourself.
Get in touch with the KoreanDoll herself on Twitter/Facebook if you would like to know anything about the shoot; she is incredibly approachable and will be more than happy to answer your questions about the Lumia 920 or fashion/beauty/food blogging.
