When people ask me, what fashion is, I say it’s art and passion. I grew up in Milan – “la Capitale della Moda” – where brands set trends and give us social status.
I walked a few catwalks when very young, which was fun and put me in contact with some key industry figures. I met many extravagant designers and still now attend fashion shows around the world. I love unique creations by designers such as Prada, Chanel, Dior and Balenciaga.
Fashion is collectible art. Fashion is one of the oldest and biggest creative industries in the world. It creates memorable pieces, generates revenue, sets trends, expresses ideas and communicates values. Massively influenced by society and the economy, fashion is a representation of the world, the inner voice of all society’s facets.
