From the end of the 1960’s to the start of the new millennium, there was one figure in the world of fashion that embodied its spirit and told its story as it was happening: the journalist Anna Piaggi, one of the most important voices of the international fashion system.
A muse to Karl Legerfeld and celebrated for her eccentric outfits by designers such as Gianni Versace, Castelbajac and Manolo Blahnik, the fashion journalist Anna Piaggi paved the way for modern-day trend forecasting and determined a new direction in fashion, cinema and art.
Alina Marazzi’s film retraces the illustrious career of the fashion legend, tracing her impact in European capitals – Paris, London, Milan – and revealing unedited archival footage provided by the archives of Alfa Castaldi, her husband and noted fashion photographer, Ugo Mulas, Bardo Fabiani.
