The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Venice Oct. 7th 2009

Caragh Johnson / October 7, 2009

Venice is 99 percent filled with tourists wearing t-shirts, sneakers, and fanny packs. In the land of over 400 walking bridges and stone alleys, making a wardrobe effort does not go unnoticed. Natalie, studying art history abroad, wears a custom-made tweed topper from her native Republic of Maldova. She picks out the fabric and buttons, and her tailor measures and sews. This is the original design collaboration, before the H&Ms and Topshops of the world!
