Florence is a colourful city. Not only in the vibrancy of its primary colours but also in the subtlety of its shades. Tess Matozza, the blogger behind A Glamorous Melting Pot and a fashion and communications student at IED, took to the streets and piazzas of Florence to craft a mobile photography project based on textiles. Armed with colour swatches of yarns, Tess compares the hues of walls, doors and shutters to those used in the fashion manufacturing industry. And… it’s a match!
