Week three for the new fashion and modelling school in Barga – Moda Barga and its back to the cat walk for some practical advice of hand and hip movements and bringing out the best in the clothes and the model.
Vaina Continuati who after a long career as a model opened her shop,Vaso di Pandora with Alessandro Stefani in Barga Vecchia and drawing on her experiences started the very successful fashion event ”Vaso di Pandora Show”, in the Piazza Angelio in Barga last summer (article, images and interview here)
She used local people as her models and after the show there was so much interest and enthusiasm shown amongst this group that the next logical step was to start a school of modelling which would include lessons on how to carry oneself with poise, elegance and style.
Just a week later in the same Piazza Angelio, the Impermanence Dance Theatre, based in London were performing with Nicolao Valiensi and his group for what was without a doubt one of the finest shows of that summer
The costumes for that show were all designed by Kerry Bell who took inspiration for the fabrics used in the costumes from the knowledge that Barga has had a special relationship to silk manufacturing for centuries as expressed in the inscription on the plaque which hangs at Piazza Ser Barghesano (article here)
