#ThatPoshTravels | Firenze

As all  of you would have seen from Snapchat & Instagram, I was in Florence for the whole month of September. I did a Seasonal Course at one of the best fashion school's in Italy: Polimoda International Institute of Fashion Design & Marketing.

The course that I was doing was the Fashion Writing & Communications course and it was stimulating. I haven’t studied in 5 years now, so it felt really refreshing to be at university again; learning, doing assignments, presenting etc. I loved every second of it! Especially to be around creatives all the time, with the same interests and unique approaches to it. The teachers all came from relevant backgrounds and work experiences to share with us the necessary skills and knowledge to grow.

Magical. Thats what Florence is. Known for its fabulous landscapes, stunning artwork and architectures and incredible charm. This centre of Italian Renaissance was exactly what I was looking for when I decided I wanted to do a short course.

I feel blessed that I got the opportunity to live for a month in this enchanting city and met so many interesting people. Below I have shared a list of some of my favourite places. Enjoy xx
