Visiting program VCU had a taste of Florence’s Pitti Uomo/Donna Fashion Week. Together with SRISA fashion students, the group set off to the Fortezza del Basso and other city sites to partake in three days of non-stop activities. The fashionistas received their trade fair badges which allowed them to enter the fair and exhibit halls to see the newest Spring and Summer 2013 collections from established and emerging designers.
Pitti is the largest fashion fair in Florence, and hosts two fashion weeks per year, for Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. During these weeks, the city of Florence comes alive with stylish people, glamorous events, and an opportunity to learn about the season’s upcoming trends.
