Let’s pack your bags, your imagination and creativity and let’s travel to Florence Italy! Italy is known for their beautiful scenery, vineyards, food, art and culture but also for their taste in fashion. You know how in New York we have New York Fashion Week, in Italy there is also Milan Fashion week where some of the class brands like Prada, Gucci, and Armani are of Origin. As a fashion influencer and future designer, I have to always be on top of my game. I have to keep up with the latest news in fashion, what’s going on, which new brands are coming out and so on. Sometimes we focus on just looking at Pinterest , Fashion websites or Instagram to know what’s going on in fashion and yeah it is helpful but we need to learn that there is more out there, and that’s why I wanted to create this post and teach you all about Pitti Uomo, so let’s do this!
Pitti Uomo is one of the world’s most important platform’s for men’s clothing,
accessory collections, and for launching new projects for men’s fashion. A four-day event held in Florence, Italy and has been around since 1972. Many retailers, buyers, editors attend to view the upcoming collections, and since blogging has growing so much, there were many influencers and bloggers that attend the event and share on social media that now it is really well-known.
Recently 1,200 brands presented which draws 25, 000 buyers, and in Italy the govt has upped the quota for the fashion industry from 23 million euros to 24.3 million about 3 years ago according to WWD magazine, they continue to support the fashion industry which is well-known for their great fabrics and tailoring.

As you guys know I love doing illustrations from my favorite fashion shows or events, when I found out about Pitti I started doing my research, learned more about it and started following a lot of bloggers and influencers. I love menswear and the details and how clean and precise some of the items are.
Here are some of my favorite street style looks:
Here are these two fashionable men Rui Martins and Niccolo Cesari .
They are both very well-known for their style and passion for fashion, I love the details on their coats and accessories.

When I saw this image on the feed from Pitti, it caught my eye because of the powerful play of patterns. JJ88Fashionist makes it look so chill, he is just looking at the news but in such a fashionable way making a statement.
Ladies!! we can rock suits too, not only the guys made a statement at Pitti but there
were some pretty stylish women that brought their A game! I was very excited to see women represent by looking powerful and also chic. Here is Monika Kaminska wearing
a RTW harvey suit and looking so sharp. So yeah we as women can rock a dress and a tailored suit as well.
I had such a great time creating this looks, and learning about Pitti.I encourage you to go out there and learn about what’s going on in the world, thank you for taking the time and reading my post I hope you enjoy it and that you were able to learn something new.
