LVMH Les Journées Particulières – Visit to the Emilio Pucci archive in Granaiolo

As you know from the previous post about Bulgari and the photos shared on Fb and Twitter, on June 15th and 16th there were Les Journées Particulieres, a special and unique occasion to visit the laboratories, cellars, factories, historic boutiques and showrooms of the LVMH brands.
After the exciting tour in the Bulgari factory, I had the pleasure to re-visit the Emilio Pucci archive at Villa Pucci in Granaiolo, a small village on the hills near Empoli (Florence).

Europeana Fashion International Conference in Florence

Last week Florence hosted the Fashion Industry and the Glam Community International Conference, the event that drew the most important journalists, bloggers and fashion curators in the first capital of Italian fashion, for the official launch of Europeana Fashion, a huge fashion archive with 700,000 digital files coming from 19 museums and archives including the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Antwerp ModeMuseum.
The Europeana Fashion project, coordinated by Fondazione Rinascimento Digitale, finally became a reality thanks to the European Commission co-funds and it will be accessible online from this summer with the publication of the first 100,000 digital objects. The presentation has been the right setting for two-days of discussion about fashion culture and communication.
