62. I’ll tell you how I started my adventure in the fashion world…
I think my story is going to take several days to tell.
The most faithful of you, the ones who wake up early in the morning to read the post, will look forward to reading the next episode.
My story really begins many years before the events that I am going to relate to you. I have been in fashion since the days I was an artist, I painted on T-shirts to earn a bit of money…
I was in fashion, but as an extra! I am not telling you this to spoil a story but to set the stage for one that becomes more interesting as it unfolds… intense moments of my life!
God has always loved me. He always found a way to show it! At various times in my life, moments that I never looked for nor thought would happen to me, have happened to me.
You have to believe in yourself. You must have confidence in yourself and in what you do.
Florence, July 1970.
A dear fellow Florentine friend advises me that that very night there is going to be a magnificent party in a beautiful villa on the hills overlooking Florence. A party to be hosted by one of the biggest designer of handbags and shoes of that time.
The guests belong to the world of leather and of course the buyers for the largest stores in the world, Italian and foreign! I never thought I could get an official invitation. I show up at the entrance gate at the wheel of a beautiful black and white Ferrari.
“I must apologize… but… I forgot my invitation…”
No problem… it was enough for a very kind gesture… the gates opened wide… I was not wearing a smoking jacket… but I was very elegant… long black hair… green eyes… not bad… I looked successful!
Now I leave you until tomorrow… very naughty of me… I want to keep you in suspense for a story about me that is so improbable you know it must be true! It will offer you an insight and a new understanding of me! In reality what I will tell you should go into the history books of fashion…
Un bacino grande grande grande…
I Love You
