The oldest fabric shop in Florence closes it's door for the last time
Barnaba closed it's doors for the last time last Saturday and with it yet another wonderful fabric shop was lost. Now there are almost no fabric shops left in Florence! An extraordinary situation given that this city was, together with Prato, the most important exporter of Cloth for centuries.
Roberta wore this new gown to the Pushkin Ball at Villa del Poggio Imperiale last Saturday (24th October 2009) and was the Belle of the Ball. Thank you Roberta for wearing it so well and managing the train!!
