Winnetonka fashion students and alumni recently took a trip to London, Paris, The French Riviera, and ending in Florence, Italy, led by Tricia Rosario, FACS teacher. While in those countries they were exposed to the different high end fashions, fabrics, fashion designer exhibits, and visited a leather factory. The group also visited many historic sites, cathedrals, and dined in amazing restaurants, eating the food from those countries. The trip ended with a day in Tuscany, visiting the cities of Siena and San Gimignano and enjoyed a lunch on a working vineyard and farm overlooking Tuscany. Rosario plans to do another tour of Italy and Greece in the summer of 2017. See pictures on website.
