A true admirer, enthusiast and researcher of the art of photography and iconography of refined and classy feminine fashion, styling, trends and closely related inspirational issues, including those ones from other worthy expressive artistic fields.
Who studies style, fashion and trends for women should always have a “three times point of view” – regarding past, present and future – and the notion that there are virtual endless possibilities to manage multiple elements of composition, construction and structuration of fashion itself – whether exclusive haute couture or prêt-à-porter – which are based on concepts ranging from purely and wisely Bauhaus-minded to hyperdatailed maximized ones. Add and mix to them the fascinating infinity industry of accessories, cosmetics, jewelry and eyewear.
An important and gratifying act is to recognize and comprehend that each woman has her own unique and particular way to deal with all these fashionist elements (a kind of personal signature), often in manners which were initially unimaginable by the designers and other professionals who are themselves behind almost every developed product. In fact, the whole process of fashion design and its related fields of expertise only makes veritable sense to exist if there is an inquestionable, genuine and deep respect, fascination and admiration for women and their private and collective universes. To have this awareness is a major and a wonderful sweet key. Thereby, it is possible to provide up high quality fashion – which can possibly be consolidated in timeless style – allowing at the same time the freedom to experiment and dream with new and revisited concepts and aesthetics, although often ephemeral, always with solid elegance and true beauty. If every photograph, every ray of light, every shadow, every human expression and movement and each photographic angle, exposition and other optical parameter is unique in a specific single photo shoot, much more unique, incomparable and special is each woman to whom the fashion industry focuses on. The real, inherent and innate beauty of a woman is inexorably unlimited as are the innumerable graceful ways of how she can be admired (and beloved) in her various features, aspects, nuances and gestures and it is an unparalleled joy to notice how they enhance with time.
