Saint Patrick day … are we enough “green”?

Hi there …

Today another quite special post … a bit provocative if you want …

The excuse to write it: Saint Patrick … today 17th of March …

Big Irish festival, but celebrated worldwide with all shining in green, even buildings with nice lighting games.

But are we really that “green”?

How many green garments do you have or wear? Do you like it as a color? There are so many different shades! Not talking about grey, but of green of course!

Green color reminds me about the connection with our planet … Mother Nature … because from the grass to the forests … there are so many difference nuances.

I like i.e. “sage green” quite much, and also all the kind of green that go almost towards the blue, the darker ones.

We can think about environment in fashion not just selecting colors connected to the environment, but also choosing materials that are taking care of the environment in the making process and as materials themselves.

What about Cotton 100% Organic?

Even in food Organic seems to be so important as a choice sometimes …

And what about harmful chemicals?

It is important to be protected from substances potentially dangerous for our health.

And what about recycling?

Have you ever thought about it?

Next time instead of throwing away your old garments in the general bin, why not bringing them to the collection centres?

Then I am not going to enter in the big chapter of fur and special animals leathers.

But the principle even there is the respect of Nature and its creatures, not making them suffer for human pleasure, while on the market there are available so many not “real” furs and similar garments that could be just perfect if you like the style but without involving real animals!

Anyway …

Tell me about your favorite “green” garment.

Thanks for reading me again …

See you soon!

Kid’s wear … a big chapter in the FASHION market

Here I am again!

This time quite a different topic …

Do you have any children?

Personally no, I do not have any. And I am not looking for having any for the time being. But I have attended in January the famous Pitti Bimbo exhibition, here in Florence, and I can say that it is a fascinating world for what concerns fashion and the clothing business.

One maybe obvious thing to say is that kid’s wear is not just simply an adult’s wear shrunk in size! It is much more! And different … and unique garments that only kids can wear looking amazingly beautiful!

One thing that I feel like saying is that kids have their own world which is precious, so I agree that children should not be dressed like little women or men, but like kids.

I don’t want to put here pictures of me when I was little, but I quite enjoyed looking back at them, and seeing how sometimes I was dressed so pretty! Thanks mum for the clothing choices and matches!

Then I remember when I was little, the first time I was trying to use make-up. And it was just for Carnival that make-up was permitted … the last day at school performance … these kind of events.

And playing with clothes in my grandmother wardrobe, wearing no matter what, and jewels: necklaces … Modeling was a kind of a game.

Kids should remain kids. They have time to face adulthood and all its beauties but also problems.

Another important thing is that kids should feel comfortable in what they are wearing, and not just look cute.

I remember at the elementary we were obliged to wear skirts, as girls, and I was not caring, I was playing football with my school mates anyway!

There are so many different garments.

For going to school, for going to play sports, for attending a birthday party and special occasions …

At Pitti really quite many inspirations for new outfits.

If there is any kid’s wear BUYER within you readers, please feel free to contact me privately for business proposals.

If you are a STYLIST who would like to create something, your line of clothing … or have any idea about it, you are more than welcome also to write me! Let’s see if ideas can become reality.

Below some pictures to show the Pitti exhibition world.

If you will be able to attend next year is a very interesting fair. Just once a year, but worthy.

So many different outfits …

In colors, design …

Here I just put some random pictures I took at the Pitti exhibition with no specific reference to any brand. In some stands they did not even allow me to take pictures …

Thanks again for reading me …

Next post different topic!

But I hope I gave you some inspirations in this one about such a big world as kid’s wear is …

Feel free to write me for more ideas and projects.

See you soon
