Alberta Ferretti, one of my most treasured designers, she is even more special now as the world of dreamers and creatives who believe in pure fashion fantasy seems to be shrinking to the selected few. I chose her to be my next personality for the blog's Fashion weeks series because I love everything she does... The pure magic (and fit) of her clothes, her taste and the timeless elegance of her designs. It's all about the quiet luxury and romance in its essence, the creativity channeled through the past and the present, the impalpable celebration of sensuality and femininity, but also the inner strength of a woman portrayed as her perfect, most beautiful self.
I believe that the Spring/Summer 2000 campaign starring Stella Tennant is the one that reflects all these qualities. More over, it is photographed by Roversi, not only one of my favourite photographers, but also the one who was able to capture the the sense of fragility and strength, the exquisite iridescent lightness, and the true aethetitcs of the Ferretti's beautiful Universe.
