Ciao babes!! Finally adjusting to life in Italy – a little bit. I don’t think I would every fully adjust to every aspect of living in another country, but I’m enjoying the short stay. Today we went to Pitti Immagine in Florence where the theme this season was fashion meets film. The exhibit this weekend was all about yarn including a room full of ways to use yarn with the upcoming S/S 2019 trends. We went from there to Vintage Selection, a room of vendors selling vintage clothes, shoes, bags, sunglasses, etc.
After completing a class project on the 1930’s, and listening to other classmates talk about the decades of fashion past, I decided to bring this knowledge to The Garment Garden! I have always identified most with the 1970’s hippie style so, first I want to dive into the 70’s and talk about some key trends. The first trend I want to discuss is the influence of the wild west style on the 70’s as well as today.
New York Fashion Week is well underway with only two days left of shows, but already some major spring trends have emerged. I was fortunate enough to attend my first show ever (yay!!) at Skylight Clarkson Square on Sunday morning to see Francesca Liberatore on behalf of Halfstack magazine, read my show review HERE. The show was amazing; full of muted colors, classic plaid, and sheer lace embellishments – just some of the amazing, upcoming spring trends.
