Our students and faculty are back from their fashion adventures in Italy! Here are some of the photos they took there—only a small fraction of the memories they’ll carry with them for years to come.

The students got to work on Day 1, taking a walking tour of Florence—a great way to get your bearings and learn about the history of the city at the same time.
