Report from Italia - Parting Thoughts

Finally got to do some sightseeing and shopping - unbelievable to have spent two weeks here and see almost nothing. Most people checked out the city last weekend when I went north, and I am disappointed that I didn't get to see the Sistine Chapel and the Pieta ... but I do not regret my decision and will simply have to return with my sweetheart.

Still, I can say that the piazzas, fountains and Roman ruins do not fail to impress and standing at the umbilicus mundi was pretty cool. And despite enjoying my tour of the grand Italian fashion houses, it is the smaller local designers that are making really beautiful and cutting edge clothing.

The last couple of days were hectic but I really enjoyed working with the people in my atelier group. A wide range of backgrounds, perspectives and personal styles made things a little difficult at times, but I still believe that diversity fosters creativity and this is the best way to do it. I also enjoyed meeting all the others - and special thanks go to Freddie, David and Magnus for being so damn brilliant and fun!
