Fashioned by Love fashion week is here. This time it’s dedicated to the one and only architect of fashion, six-time winner of the prestigious Occhio d'Oro as best Italian designer and the De D'Or as couture designer, Gianfranco Ferre.
There were a few good reasons for me to write about him. I’ve admired the man since I was very young. He was, in fact, one of the few designers I was aware of as a teen, and my very first perfume coincidently was by Gianfranco Ferre - needless to say, just a mention of his name brings back beautiful memories.
Though this week isn't about memories... but the one of a kind fashion designer and the legacy he left behind.
Lets start the journey with the stunning Gianfranco Ferre 1992 campaigns featuring Linda Evangelista photographed by Steven Meisel. I chose them because Ferre's signatures have always been, in my opinion, the architectural approach to design, the opulence of execution and, of course, the white shirt - and these shots are an absolute reflection of them.
