Fashion in Florence
From the Costume Gallery in the Pitti Palace, to the Ferragamo and Gucci Museums in search of the roots of the Florence fashion tradition.
Fashion in Florence is like scent to a rose: you cannot have one without the other. Fashion has in recent years given Florence an extra dimension with names like Gucci or Ferragamo and the plethora of excellent fashion designers and producers whose creations are sold all over the world. Let me introduce you to this fantastic world to see how it all started, grew and developed into what it is today and to understand the obsession of a city and its people with flare and style.
