A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending Italian designer, Marta Scarampi’s soft launch party in SoHo debuting her ready-to-wear collection, launching in January 2017. The line features limited-edition garments inspired by occasions including Business, Cocktail, Weekend, Party and Gala. Being out of the fashion scene for a while, I was pretty excited to see new pieces from an Italian Designer. I even brought along my friend and Italian translator Kez B.
