Meeting Scott Schuman from The Sartorialist in Florence | Pitti Uomo

Pitti Uomo and Scott Schuman in Florence January 2013
Pitti Uomo week was eventful, you cannot imagine how much. I was all over Florence from Polimoda, to La Fortezza where Pitti Uomo was being held, to fashion shows and to parties, it was fun and such a great week. 

On the first day of Pitti Uomo, during my work assignment for Trendstop, I bumped into no other than Scott Schuman, the man behind The Sartorialist and the man who made street style what it is today.

The following Thursday, there was a book signing by him at Polimoda, and I was informed that it had to end at 8:30pm, knowing that, I went to the Maison Kitsune fashion show and arrived at Polimoda at 7:30pm. As soon as I arrived, I was told that the book signing was over, until I met one of his assistants and told me to wait, I did and got both books signed, The Sartorialist and Closer signed.

Thank you Mr.Schuman for being such an inspiration not only in street style and photography but also how we look at fashion now.

I must say that this has been and will be the most exciting week. This weekend I met fashion bloggers, Chiara Ferragni and Bryan Boy at Volume. They were with Riccardo Pozzoli (Chiara's boyfriend) and Eleonora Carisi, whom I did not recognise (shame on me), I follow her immaculately.

Pitti Uomo is here and Florence lights up with fashion activities, before and after. 

Luisa Via Roma's event Firenze 4Ever brings all the famous fashion bloggers, to his beautiful old city. 
Photoshoots and style labs, food and drinks, dinners and parties, two days filled with activities. 
All bloggers wear the new Spring/Summer 2013 collections, they choose a designer and a location to suit the  drama and glamour behind their outfit.

Luisa Via Roma, has reached such heights, not only in Italy but in the world as one of the best concept stores, and in some cases, noone can beat it. Its innovative, and continues changing and growing, with events such as these. 
Bryan Boy sent me a tweet the following morning and the started following me on Twitter, I'm a happy bunny!

Yesterday I bumped into Giuseppe Zanotti, whilst he was walking into Luisa Via Roma, everyone is in town, so come to Florence and see it all for yourself.

I'm so happy to be back.
