Having officially lived in Florence for one month now, I have learned so much about the culture, people, fashion and lifestyle of Italians. As a fashion major, and Italy being one of the world’s most amazing fashion capitals, it’s hard not to walk down the streets everyday and not be in complete awe of the amazingly chic people that crowd the cobblestone streets. As the legendary McQueen once said, “I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it,” and that is exactly how I have been trying to perceive the simple things here in Italy. Fashion is echoed through everything from the local bars to the people bustling in the local markets. In order to better understand the fashion here in Italy, one must first understand the culture. Here’s a photo diary of the simple, beautiful things that stood out the most to me in my first month here in Italy. Enjoy!
