Dee Abrahamsen

Seinior Editor - Fashion & Travel Contributor

   Where to begin with our beloved fashion and travel editor, Dee Abrahamsen?   

Dee is a New Yorker, a lover of Italy, a successful fashion model, a brilliant graphic artist, and an inspired writer whose way with words is beyond compare.   But most of all, Dee is one of the most lovely and genuinely kind humans you will ever have the pleasure of meeting.

While born in New York, Dee grew up in New Jersey in a quiet suburb across the Hudson River from Manhattan.

But it was inevitable that Dee’s remarkable range of talents would lead her to the city of her birth.

Although you would never know it to meet her, because she is so down to earth, Dee is a highly-in-demand, working fashion model.

Dee has been photographed by some of New York’s top fashion photographers.   And she has appeared multiple times in the works of documentarian and journalist Ari Seth Cohen.   You can often see Dee’s face on the side of a New York City bus or on a Los Angeles billboard for cosmetic and fashion brands.

Dee is also a gifted artist whose work, which often depicts women set in iconic Manhattan settings, is poignant and delightful.   Her work can be found all over the City.

When Dee is not in New York, she is traveling (usually in Italy) and writing.   

Dee has a written voice so profoundly exquisite, that readers are immediately captivated and inspired.

Dee’s articles about travel through Italy and Italian fashion are the next best thing to living La Dolce Vita.   

We are grateful to have her as a member of our family at All Roads Lead To Italy.   You can follow Dee on Instagram and on her website at
