Between the madness of Pitti Uomo in Florence and then Men’s Fashion Week in Milan and Paris, I’ve finally had the time the write this post. Mid last month just before Pitti Uomo I was invited by Luisa via Roma in Florence to attend their biannual Firenz4ever event. The event was so good. The team totally looked after us and I think I ate my entire body weight in food. Not very fashionable I know, but I guess I’m a little different to your average Joe in the fashion industry. During the event there is an opportunity to attend the style labs. These involve styling, photography or if like you can actually be photographed using all the pieces from the store. As you can image, the store is huge so there seemed to be an endless supply of opportunities.
I chose to style and photography my gal pal, Tina Craig a.k.a the bagsnob herself. If you don’t know Tina’s blog and you are a super bag lady (pardon the pun) you have been living under a rock. You know when you hear those stories about those people who start blogs and make a extremely successful career out of it. Well Tina is definitely up there with the best of them. Anyway, lets not bang on about Tina for to long. Her story is a whole other blog post.
We jumped in a car and headed for the Tuscan country side. Amazing and the first time I had left the confines of the city centre of Florence. We ended up at the house owned by the Roberto Cavalli and thats where I took these shots. As you can image, the grounds were slightly extravagant and there was an abundance of backdrops. I wanted to take Tina slightly out of her comfort zone and these are the looks I created for her. FYI, the white backpack in the 3rd pic was designed by Tina herself.
