Thank you Maria Katia!

Maria_Katia_Doria_Bloggers_brunch

Many among you already read about the fantabulous Maria Katia Doria’s pink brunch. She is a classy blogger, famous for her good taste and caustic humor and also known to the great public as the blonde aunt of fashion.

Its main fields are the embroideries and the knits: you can find there balls of wool, yarns, bundles, embroidery flosses, printed canvas for cross stitch and other techniques. … [Read more...]

Always next to you

Copertina_Grazia_6_Marzo_1941

Grazia a friend next to you. In Italian the quote sounds a bit strange because the main Grazia’s competitor is Amica, that is “friend” in Italian. Moreover some years ago the two most popular Italian magazines centered their respective Advs (one against each other) on wordplays based exactly on their names. It’s the 1941 issue from where I “cut” the piece about the cosmic origin of fashion, it was a war period in Italy. I’ve always thought that during the war everything … [Read more...]
