NATURE, NUTRITION & HIGH FASHION DESIGN ON DISPLAY!

NATURE, NUTRITION & HIGH FASHION DESIGN ON DISPLAY!

The Elegance of Food. Tales about Food & Fashion is the brand new exhibit at the Trajan’s Market entirely focused on two strong points of Made in Italy: food and fashion indeed.
The exhibition takes visitors on a journey across the link between nature and nutrion as it was and still is transposed in high fashion design. Water, Air, Earth and Fire appear then as inspiring motifs of haute couture artistic creations, from embroidery and textures to dresses and accessories.
That’s not all. The relation between nutrition and nature is the subject of the six month global fair EXPO MILANO 2015: the exhibit is thus a further tribute to this gigantic event.
The Elegance of Food is open every day from 9.30 am to 7.30 pm until November 1st, 2015.
HotelRome.net will be glad to provide you with more info on Expo Milano 2015 and current events in Rome!
