#TUSCANTREASURES - Experience the fashion made all Tuscan

Many fashion accessories created in Tuscany: we tell you about them

Do you think the cradle of haute couture is the city of Milan? Well, you're wrong.

Tuscany, Florence,is the cradle of Italian haute couture.

It all began in February 1951 when, at Villa Torrigiani,the first historic "show" organized by Giovan Battista Giorgini was held to present Italian fashion to the world, in front of 6 important American buyers.



Here were presented the collections of designers such as the Fontana sisters, Jole Veneziani, Emilio Pucci and Maison Carosa. Now in its 4th edition, Giorgini moved the location of the fashion shows to the White Room of Palazzo Pitti: since then Pitti has become synonymous with the new era of Italian fashion.

Since then, the Italian style, admired and mentioned everywhere, was born in Florence and then in Tuscany.


Fashion-related curiosities

In addition to renowned boutiques, the city is home to the only Italian museum dedicated to fashion, the Costume Gallery and even the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum.

In addition, the Tuscan capital boasts a centuries-old memory also in the leather goods sector: Florence, but all of Tuscany, have from their presence numerous artisan workshops where you can find timeless fashion accessories, such as bags, belts and shoes.

The artisanal guilds in Florence have played a key role for the city since the 12th century.


The Arts and Crafts Corporations had to organize the city's artisans: shoemakers, jewelry makers, painters and virtually every kind of creative imaginable.
