IMG_6864Ciao everyone,

Now I’ve been absolutely dreading this post since I first started blogging about Florence, since it meant that my Year Abroad had come to an end.

Working there made me realise that the fashion industry is not all ‘The Devil Wears Prada’!! I really loved it and it’s given me some inspiration for what I want to do after I graduate.
