NYC to Venice | An Artist Abroad at Carnevale | Photos, Interview5/07/2014
Lauren Rossi is one of my dearest friends. I can count on one hand how many friends I would consider as close as a sister to me, and Lauren is one of them. Beyond being a striking, intelligent woman, she is also a talented designer and seamstress. Over the last year I had the unique opportunity to follow her in a project that spanned an ocean and required many sleepless hours spent patiently creating elegant costumes for a grand occasion (while working a grueling schedule for her full time job in Manhattan). That occasion was none other than Venetian Carnevale, truly a bucket list event. Following the event I asked Lauren if she would share some of the intimate details of the project and I'm so happy she agreed.
After a weekend visiting her in NYC, I'm happy to bring you this inside look at her work.
