So freakin cool! I had the opportunity to walk in the Columbus Day Parade in NYC dressed as the red part of the italian flag, designed by my wedding dress designer!! Francesca Paterno, is well know throughout Sicily for her work, in particular a series of red, white and green dresses which have won many awards. She is in NY for the Bridal Fashion Week and through someone she knows at the Italian Consulate, they asked her to walk the dresses in the parade. So myself along with 2 friends walked arm in arm around 5th Avenue and Central Park until we ended up at the Columbus Citizens Foundation. What a cool experience!
