A couple of summers ago, coming home from class, I took the subway with a friend and I told her I was trying to start a blog... then I also told her how time consuming and addicting it had become, and that I was wondering if it was something worth doing... she laughed and asked me to let her know when I was done and give her the"link" so she could read it. Then she left and I kept thinking...why? why should I do this ?

Technology has taken us to a new level and we are now, able to "publish ourselves"! PUBLISH OURSELVES however we want to; if you want to be yourself, transparent and out in the open, or even if you want to pretend to be someone else... YOU CAN! Now you can blog and share your thoughts and experiences with people without having them "altered" by the editors, or "chosen" because of how cool or marketable they are...

This space is for us to share; zaidibirindilindilandia-my own little world, my ingenious- and your thoughts!

welcome, and thank you!

The 50's, Le nonne, e la Comune di Firenze

So... about three classes into the semester, our draping professor got a phone call from and ex-student(i believe) and he asked her if she had anyone who was interested in participating in a fashion show"thing" for some elder ladies... She briefly explained and we all said YES! I mean, we are in ITALIA- lets take advantage of it all... some research-this is my desk!

So...Now we are all being part of a Fashion Show organized by the Comune di Firenze-that celebrates the 50'S, and the beauty of women. In Italy-when a woman has children-she stops being a woman-and becomes JUST a mother, just a wife, a cleaner... etc.. so THIS show will give them...a remembrance of their "plumper" years- but will make a point that women never stop being women... its just that some-forget!A vintage boutique will lend some dresses so that young models-model- with the older women- who will be wearing OUR 50's inspired, NEW creations... IRONIC! ENCHANTING!
...JUST sketching SOME IDEAS
It has been such a touching experience- We met the nonnas last Wednesday and I am telling you-almost all of us cried! These women have so much energy! One of them-93- said that she was blessed to be alive to see this happening-Youth and Old... together!
