Oceana Granata

What's your favourite Fashion Week show ever?

I adore Chanel's shows, every single one is always incredible. One of my all-time favourites was the Cruise 2010 show which was held on the boardwalk of one of Venice's most beautiful beaches at sunset. It reminded me of my favourite Visconti movie 'Death in Venice'.

Which trend will you be trialling at Fashion Week?

You'll see me dressed all in black with bright-coloured tights or socks.

What 5 people would be on your fantasy front row?

Nanna Øland Fabricius aka Oh Land as I absolutely love her style and her music, Claudia Schiffer, as she is still such an amazing top model after all these years in the limelight, Anna Piaggi, and Monica Bellucci wih husband Vincent Cassel. She is breathtakingly beautiful and has great sense of style, and who wouldn't like a handsome man in the front row?

Which show are you most excited to see?

Zac Posen for his love of details on his clothes, they're a wonderful sight especially for an illustrator's eye. Antonio Berardi's and Mulberry's shows are always fun and young.

Tell us your favourite Fashion Week anecdote

I ended up on the catwalk once! I often work backstage, and when it was time for rehearsal, not all the models had arrived, and they put me in one of the girls' places. You should have seen the look of the photographers when they realised I wasn't a top model. Well, I guess every girl can dream?
