Not in the Sky, Not Underground...

On Saturday I had the priviledge of attending the Accademia Italiana fashion show 2011, which had the theme "Not in the Sky, Not Underground". Before the show my roommate and I headed across the Arno to our friend Anna's apartment where we joined her, her lovely roommates and some others from Iowa State for appetizers, wine and ample amounts of champagne.
We then hopped into a mess of cabs and went to the show which as at Teatro Saschal which is in the southern part of Florence. We got there in time to view the graphic and interior design exhibitions, and then took our seats for the show to begin. The booming music and outstanding designs and execution of the clothing gave me such an adrenaline rush. The show was fantastic and featured designs from both undergrad and graduate students of the Accademia.  

The knitwear scattered throughout the show's collections were flawless and easily could be implemented into any boutique seamlessly. My favorite looks though from the show include this bridal dress inspired by the Far East Orient, and the GORGEOUS black and purple tulle ballgowns that I think are completely wearable and amazing. A perfect night out with fabulous friends and even more fabulous fashion.
