Interview with

While waiting for the next post about one of the most interesting fashion designers of the Milan Fashion Week, I want to share with you a pleasant interview with me and the guys of UPLOADYOURTALENT.COM.

I “virtually” know the entire team and I’m amazed if I think that we “met” for the first time, about four years ago, on the blog of Franca Sozzani (editor in chief of Vogue Italia), when we dreamed of an internship at Vogue Italia and we used to give ideas and suggestions by answering her questions.

At first there were just comments, then came the friend requests on social networks, the tweets, the likes and day after day we shared our passions and doubts for our future, until the most enterprising members of the group built up a platform for fashion talented people. is a type of database that brings together the activities of all the young people who work in the fashion field and who want to present their talent through the web.
Bloggers, fashion designers, stylists, make-up artists, photographers, graphic designers and even internationally renowned journalists (including the iconic Diane Pernet) shared their talent, experience and future projects on the website, making up a growing network of creative professionals.
From today I have a special place in this network too, thanks to the team, especially Salvatore, Teresa, Laura and Beatrice.

Interview – Bruno Parise, il cultore dell’intrecciato veneto

Veneto is one of the Italian regions boasting antique craftsmanship traditions universally recognized for their uniqueness and Bruno Parise, visionary entrepreneur with a long career in the knitwear field, wanted to enhance these resources by launching Bruno Parise Italia bags line destined to conquer the international markets.
Bruno Parise
Tradition, craftsmanship and innovation are the few, but essential keywords for the success of Bruno Parise Italia. The main feature of his bags is the recover of the antique Venetian weaving tradition (intreccio), by salvaging a treadle loom of the eighteenth century for weaving tapestries. Thin strips of leather are woven with a cotton thread canvas of the same color, creating a sort of soft fabric which Bruno Parise models and declines in timeless shapes to meet the needs of all women.
Bruno Parise Italia is a conscious choice of style, a brand which avoids logos and trusts in the rare traditional craftsmanship, making each bag unique.
Following the presentation of the collection and thanks to Alessandra Parise (who cures the communication of the brand), I had the honor to interview Bruno Parise investigating his relationship with the territory, his type of customers and the love for Venetian craftsmanship.
