Costume Colloquium: reception at Pitti palace courtyard cafÃ©
One more batch of “social” pictures. I promise I’ll come back to all the days and events in due time. In the Pitti palace camera’s were not allowed so I got to practice my sketching skills and purchased a small booklet with some of the costuming. I’m still not sure if I’m brave enough to share any of the crude sketches.
The auto copyright kept going over the bag so here it is without. Much of the time walking around Firenze you’d notice the black bags, a gift from the Colloquium, wandering around. At first I used them to identify other participants. Eventually I started recognizing faces :) I loved this shot because her shawl demonstrates a technique discussed in one of the classes.
As you can see, all these building just engulfed the group which numbered in total 315. Of course not all participants were at every reception, but still…
Later into the night:
** and my computer keeps trying to give copyright to my husband who wasn’t even in Italy. I’ll come back and redo those later.
There is definitely an overwhelming theme among the participants for wearing scarves and shawls. Was it cold, or was everyone just tres fashion?
I was in Florence at this Costume Qolloquium, It was wonderfull days in Florence, Pisa and Ceratelli Foundation. You have beautifull photos and yours costumes so pretty!!!
I send my greetiengs for you
