History of Fashion exhibit of student works

2When: Friday 29/01/2010 to 31/01/2010
Where: Galleria Dei Medici – next to Palazzo Medici-Riccardi, via Cavour
Who: Fashion students from Florence’s high school “Istituto Tornabuoni – Cellini”

Students from a local high school that has a fashion program will stun you with their ability to minutely recreate historical fashion from the 13th century to the present. This love of past artisanship and study of history is an important step towards creating a future in fashion; these students look forward to a bright one. Set up in the suggestive new gallery that links two important streets in downtown Florence, this free exhibit will allow you to step momentarily into the romantic past of bell skirts, detachable sleeves, and corsets.

If you thought high school students couldn’t sew, or didn’t make gorgeous mature-looking models, think again. These dresses are absolutely stunning.
