Saturday, Jan 23rd
If I survive these fun fashion events I’ll spend time Saturday interviewing designers on the trade show floor that’s divided into different areas: Pitti Bimbo, Apartment, KidzFizz, EcoEthic, Sport Generation, SuperStreet, and more! I just made a mental note to bring super comfy shoes and some energy bars.
Sounds like it’s going to be an exciting weekend at Pitti Bimbo. I’ll be sure to share my journey on Dashin Fashion & Social Media from Pitti Bimbo in Florence!
