An Interview: A Dozen Flavours of Gelato with Laura Fantacci of Wardrobe Icons

- 'A Dozen Flavours of Gelato' -

It’s time for our first installment of A Dozen Flavours of Gelato in 2018! I’m so incredibly excited about this one (but aren’t I for all of them?!) because we are launching the year with a proper Italian! Her name is Laura Fantacci and she’s as amazing as she is stylish.

I first met Laura about five years and have always been envious of her Italian roots and flawless fashion. I can honestly say she is easily one of the most stylish women I have ever met. Whether she’s wearing something from Dolce & Gabbana or a beach vendor in Sicily, her look is always perfection.

As the co-founder of the online magazine Wardrobe Icons, blogger at Wearing it Today, jewellery designer and mum to two adorable little girls, Laura does it all. This is why I knew I had to feature her on this series. Thank you so much for squeezing us in to your busy schedule, Laura!
