The winter break went by definitely too fast but we’ve already jumped into many fashion activities at school so we can’t complain about boredom. Last weekend in Florence was full of fashion fun with Pitti Filati (a yarn trade show) as well as Vintage Selection 21 (a huge vintage clothing fair). I really enjoyed both of them. It was great to see all of these trends in knitwear industry and talk to the professionals. It was a real B2B (Business to Business) experience. But hunting for some unique stuff during Vintage Selection made me very excited too. You can never be tired of old school Chanel, Hermes or Louis Vuitton products. And all of these unknown funky designers made my heart beat faster! I need to admit… it was a paradise for every fashion lover.
Soon, in less than two weeks we’re heading for our academic trip to Paris. We don’t know the exact schedule yet but I’m sure we’ll have numerous industry and cultural appointments over there. I look forward to seeing one of the most fabulous cities in the world! Just to tell you a little secret… we’ll be at the top of the Eiffel Tower the first night!
However, before setting off to France, we’re going to participate in Venice Carnival on Sunday. I bet all of my friends are already getting their masks ready!
I know you’ve also just started new semester at FIT. I wish you good luck and enjoy it as much as we do here in Italy!
