Eco-friendly Fashion Design: Too Italy

It was a week of fashion shows, cocktail receptions, and making new friends. All things Italian stimulated my senses, from the wonderful wines, to the visual and tactile delights of designer clothing and jewelry – and listening to Italian being spoken all around me.

No, I was not attending the fashion shows in Milan or Rome. It was Italian Fashion Week in Dallas, Texas – and what a wonderful week it was! Over forty Italian designers showcased their clothing, jewelry and accessories at the Dallas Market Center.

I met people from all over Italy: Milan, Vincenza, Venice, and Sicily. The three young women from Too Italy, a boutique in (where else) Rome, were friendly and easy to talk to, and I hit it off with them right away. I look forward to visiting them and their store the next time I’m in Rome.

Who is Too Italy? Carola, Giovanna, and Alessia. What do they sell? Bags and accessories, crafted using materials that are recycled, reused and unique – and all hand made in their workshop and storefront near the Colosseum. I’ve included a few photographs I took at their space in the Dallas Market Center last weekend.
