(Tracey-Anne Buckley Aggett)

If travel and fashion are your passion, an exclusive tour to Milan, Rome and Venice is the perfect fit.

Conceived by dynamic Durban businesswoman and fashion expert Tracey-Anne Buckley Aggett, the exclusive seven-night tour debuts on February 11, 2017. It’s a chance to savour the sights and sensations of three of Europe’s most exciting cities and to rub shoulders with its fashion stars.

Tracey-Anne, who is Mrs KwaZulu-Natal 2016 and Mrs Universe 2016 first princess, has harnessed her fashion and beauty experience to create the perfect pamper holiday under her Le-Fem Workshop banner.

“I have always had a love and passion for fashion and travel,” said Tracey-Anne. “After years of networking, I have built up a reputable team of Italian fashion experts. Being a visionary, as well as an entrepreneur, I used my career skills and love of travel and fashion to create a unique luxury tour.

“I would love to help people create memories that last a lifetime, as well as being impactful in their day to day lives. I believe this is a niche type of travel with loads of potential and growth to further expand around the world.

“Fashion styling is a far bigger picture than just styling clothes; it really changes lives and empowers individuals – starting from the inside out. Le-Fem Workshops, with the slogan ‘Love being you’, is all about helping women to love themselves.”

The tour will include private runway shows, VIP trunk shows and fashion events, meet-and-greets with top international designers like Jamal Tsalaq and Massimo Crivilli, personal style advice, cultural activities, sightseeing, shopping and spa pamper time.

On returning home, guests will have the opportunity to continue their experience with image workshops, bespoke social events, interior decorating and life coaching.

“From hidden boutiques in the cobblestone alleyways of Milan and the enchanting architecture of Rome to the captivating waterways of Venice, guests will be able to soak up the history and artistic flair of these Italian treasures,” said Tracey-Anne.

Accommodation is in carefully selected four and five-star hotels and guests will have the services of experienced tour guides during their trip. Groups will depart and return via King Shaka International Airport.

The tour itinerary is Milan (February 11 to 14), Venice (February 14 to 16) and Rome (February 16 to 18.)

The land-based tour cost is Euros 3552 (single) and Euros 3276 (double). The price excludes flights, visa and travel insurance, spa bookings, lunches, drinks and teas, unless arranged by the designer show.

Le-Fem has an in house travel expert, who will be able to help with 24-hour travel assistance during the tour and can also help with flight arrangements. Tours are also planned for March and April 2017.
