Hey There Pretty Birds,
Welcome to the latest episode of Tamu’s Cafe – A picnic and long-awaited sit down with my friend Edward Buchanan, the designer behind Sansovino 6. In this video, we talk about Edward’s incredible career, his  love of Milan, and we address racial ignorance on social media and in general. It’s a long video, rich with inspiration for those starting out in fashion and for those who are interested in moving to a foreign country. Make a sandwich, grab a drink, sit down and enjoy. xoxo, Tamu

Cafe Specials
Roasted Chicken, Mozzarella, Tomato and Kale on Wheat Sandwiches.
I picked up the roasted chicken at a gourmet deli near my apartment. They use “Nostrano” chickens that are raised free range and grass fed in Italy. I asked them to cut the chicken in quarters so that I could easily carve out slices for our sandwiches. I added fresh mozzarella and tomato because I am a huge fan of the combination better known as a “caprese salad.” I added a leaf of kale because we forgot to pick up basil at the market and the sandwich needed something green.

Fruit Salad
I chopped up oranges, watermelon, peaches and mango into cubes and through them into a glass container for some yellow and red goodness.

Lemonade
I added freshly squeezed lemons and honey to hot water, let the mixture cool to room temperature and then chilled it in the refrigerator. Portions are to taste, it depends on how sweet and tangy you prefer your lemonade.

Music – Waves by Super Agent.

Special thanks to Beside Communications, Edward Buchanan, Ale Dotti, Annina Piana and Julia Capresi.

      Thanks Gigi! Edward has such an open point of view. It’s so refreshing to talk to him. I always learn something new. xx


    Fantastic interview and very inspiring!

    I know what Edward means about flying into an airport and feeling like you’re home.

    I lived in Los Angeles for 10 years. The second time I came to visit Rome, I was relieved to be “home” when I landed at Fiumicino. It made no sense. I realized I had to leave Los Angeles (which never felt like home) and move.

      Hi Arlene, I totally agree with you. And as much as I miss NY at times, I always know that my real home is here in Italy now. When I’m gone for too long, I always feel like it’s time to get home. Lot’s of love hon! xoxo

    Tamu, I always check out your blog, but found the time to watch this interview. Very important for many reasons. As a black physician living in the US, so many things about this experience goes unsaid. I cannot imagine what being black in fashion in Italy feels like, but I was happy to hear about it in a very “true” way, without rhetoric.

      Hi Ami, thanks for taking the time to check out the video. It was very important for Edward and I to speak about our experience as people of color. Edward’s now global point of view is so insightful and wise. I just wanted to share it with you all! Lots of love from Milan.

      I’m so happy that we were able to share a very real aspect about our lives here in Italy and Europe. It’s always so helpful to know how things are and can be if you make such an important move. Thanks for stopping by. xoxo

    Very insightful interview. He Is a very talented artist/designer. I appreciated the last topic discussed, having recently visited Italy and discovering unexpected prejudice. Wonderful to have conversations in fashion that are not shallow.
