ARTISTS AND ARTISANS IN FLORENCE
By Birgitte Brøndsted
This post is part of a weekly series called Artists and Artisans in Florence. For a presentation of the project click HERE.
Today I am happy to present the first fashion designer in the series.
Emily Taranto-Kent is an American designer and artist originally from Boston. She has travelled and lived in several countries, and a couple of years ago she came to Florence to do a master’s program in one of Florence’s great fashion academies.
Since then she has been living and working here, and this week I went to visit Emily in her new home and studio located in the center of Florence.
If you happen to meet Emily in the streets of Florence, you can always recognize her, since she is usually accompanied by her two very cute little dogs Bella and Pazienza.
