I am so excited to be writing my first ever blog post! As the owner of Raffinata, and by the nature of my business, I am required to stay on top of the latest fashion news, trends, colors, etc. I absolutely love the topic of fashion and the fashion industry, and my favorite part is learning how to take the latest trends and mesh them with my personal conservative lifestyle and beliefs. Though it is a challenge to do so sometimes, I enjoy it. As I blog, I will share my personal insights as well as any new information I glean through my reading up on the latest fashion industry’s trends and my interaction with people within the fashion industry, such as vendors, manufacturers, designers and such. Enjoy!
