But to warm matters up, head to Plaza Armenia this evening at 7pm for an outdoor show by Vero Ivaldi. For a sense of her women’s wear, check out her SS2014 collection, Cinemática,.

And as per Monday night, our very own chef Hernán Gipponi will lead hungry diners through his epic One Table, communal dining experience, complete with wine pairings.

Tuesday

To get a head’s up on one of the week’s closing fashion shows, drop by the Kostüme store in Palermo Soho. Sharp lines and a simple palette are key to men’s and women’s collections tailored by design duo Camila Milessi and Emiliano Blanco. Kostüme, Gurruchaga 1585, Palermo Soho.

Today’s runway pick is Cosiendo Redes, which helps people of any age to work their way into the textiles industry. From the very young to those looking to re-enter the work arena, it’s a great opportunity to get some practical experience. BAF Week, 4pm, La Rural, Plaza Italia.

Thursday

Today’s show of the day is Cora Groppa, a lady who’s been a staple on the design circuit for many years and is known for her voluminous style of women’s wear. Think elevated ruffs that appear to be held in place with plenty of hairspray. She brings her Anniversaire collection to the table this evening. BAF Week, 6pm, La Rural, Plaza Italia.
