Starting today, January the 30th, until February the 3rd, Rome will be the wonderful setting of the ALTA ROMA FASHION EVENT, an important show in which some Italian and foreign fashion houses take part in order to present their new creations. This year, the list of designers seems shorter than last year, probably due to the economic crisis which has obliged many fashion houses to postpone the showing of their new models.
Many of the top, world famous fashion houses took part in this show and it would be almost impossible describe each of them in detail. So we have decided to concentrate just on those designers who, more than others, have prioritized the usage of prestigious exotic leathers in the making of their masterpieces or have re-proposed the use of handbags and suitcases for men too, because, in our opinion, they are more relevant to our business and to our projects than the others.
Big bags are great, we all love them. A big bag like a tote can take everything we need for work or play. They are both practical and flattering for most women, making us look slimmer and more petite by comparison with the size of the bag. Since the fashion for big bags began our handbag has been even more versatile, often replacing briefcases for professional women as they find their tote makes a far more elegant and better looking work bag. Mothers of small children no longer have to lug around unstylish nappy bags but can find designer bags big enough to fit everything in and look chic too.
Nova età (“New age” in English) is a special fashion evening brought about thanks to the cooperation of the Province and Quartiere 1 with several Italian fashion schools.
The event will see forty old women (aged between 75 and 94) accompanied by forty young girls wearing the clothes of the 50’s alongside those of today. About 160 students, have taken part in the organization of this evening! They have created the new dresses and rediscovered the vintage ones stuffed inside old armchairs or in vintage clothing shops but they have also put together all the music, lighting, videos and pictures that will be shown during the event.
