While spending a semester abroad in the beautiful city of Rome, Italy, I was taken aback by how old and yet how beautiful the city is. Its hard to comprehend the centuries of people and their stories that made up the city's past. Even as the buildings and great monuments show their age, the charm of the city gets stronger. It is a bit of living history and I wanted that to be the inspiration of this small line.
I wanted to make a few gowns that represented the elegance that has held up through the centuries, as well as the city's passion and its ancient traditions.
