This Saturday a little bit of Italy will be visiting Newburgh in the form of a fashion writer Emma Travet at Caffe Macchiato. There is going to be a book signing and a video all about Emma and Italy. From what I can gather from translating various parts of this books reviews, this book is about a journalists dream to write for Vanity Fair. It talks about vintage finds, fashion in Milan, and is a book about good spirits and optimism. Surely a fun time awaits those who will attend this book signing, just as the ladies in the photos below did in Italy. Check out that signora’s pink stockings and green shoes! Caffe Macchiato will also be exhibiting photographer, Massimo Milanese’s work. We are loving the cultural events in Newburgh!
