Fashion photography is one of the most fabulous fields of art that has made itself an industry. Driven by the love for beauty and wonder, it isn’t surprising that photography itself has succumbed to cover creations in which we live and people who pose for the cameras in magnificent designer pieces that most girls would like to have. Otherwise, how else can the fashion industry effectively bring out what it has to offer to the world if not rely on fashion photography in the form of ad campaigns, magazine spreads and everything PRs could think of. For an early conclusion, it is easy to say that fashion photography reigns once again as it is all over the place.
Fashion Photography by Helmut Newton
Unlike what some people think, fashion photography isn’t only about trends that each season has to offer.
We all know that there’s no love lost between Italy and its neighbour France. The two countries compete like siblings in wine, cuisine, sports and of course in fashion. Sometimes, like real siblings a truce ensued and admiration support and love for one another is displayed, very publicly.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Franca Sozzani, in Dolce&Gabbana FW13.
This not so rare show of mutual respect and fondness was shown yesterday in the occasion when Franca Sozzani, Editor in Chief of Vogue Italia received the Legion d’Honeur. Clad in a beautifully ornate shift dress that rivalled the opulence of the furnishings of the Elysee Palace, Sozzani was rewarded with the highest honour in the French Republic for her contribution to fashion and for the promotion of French fashion around the world.
Sozzani was singled out for this honour not only for her super partesadmiration for French designs, but also for being a risk taker in her work. She’s been at the helm of Vogue Italia for 24 yrs and its never grown stale.
Sozzani’s contribution to fashion is constantly recognized, both by the public, the institutions and the fashion set.
