I was in Florence, Italy this spring, and while trying to find my way from the Duomo to Ponte Vecchio, I came across the Luisa Via Roma store. The African print (ankara) display window looked inviting, and being the ankara enthusiast that I am, I had to make a detour and check out the store.
Luis Via Roma is a luxury store that carries high end brands, but together with Vlisco (Dutch manufacturer of African print fabric) they created a collection of accessories, sticker sheets--and even books. I got into a conversation with one of the store attendant and she was surprised that I knew so much about African print fabric (little did she know that I own an accessory store that primarily uses ankara fabric).
Below are some of the pictures I took.
Isn't this a fun store to be in?
