Here's a little… Continue

Forte_Forte: A Low Key Label from Italy is About to Make a Lot of Noise
When Giada Forte decides to check up on what’s happening with the latest collection for her label Forte_Forte, she doesn’t need to play a game of planes, trains, and automobiles to do the perusing. Instead, she simply gets into her car at her studio an hour away from Vicenza, drives for ten minutes, and that’s it.
