Today I went on a little field trip with my introduction to fashion class to… wait for it… THE FERRAGAMO MUSEO in Florence. The museum is located directly below the store in the Ferragamo palace. We enter and the first thing you see are all the walls of shoes and more shoes from top to bottom. They’re from the feet of royals, Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe to today’s Angelina Jolie and Michael Jordan.
Not only was he a shoemaker but he was also an inventor and a major contributor to fashion as we know it. Ladies, you can all thank Mr.Ferragamo for inventing the “wedge” shoe. Legends like Ferragamo give me hope for this world and I pray every day to become the next one! It was quite the sight to see and I will be back.
