the name "blue jeans" derives from the French "bleu de Genes" - blue of Genoa.
These days Genova celebrated the world of jeans with exhibitions
in different city locations and museums.
One exhibition I really enjoyed was a display on the history of jeans -
complimented by a few dresses created by students of the course of theatre costume.
I was in love with one of them - so full of clever detailing -
the corpet was made with belt parts,
the ruffled back with an assortment of odd legs and the train a collection of pockets.
I thought it was amazing - and I wish all the best to Teresa who designed it!
