STYLIST NICOLETTA SANTORO
I was recently talking to a friend about the fashion industry and how much its changed, and the roles of everyone behind the productions of Vogue editorials. I was exposed to some of the greatest talents in the fashion industry. That was the talent of the late Franca Sozzani, she had a strong vision and she chose to work with certain people and gave them creative freedom to create real art and expression of the times. One of those greats, who I only met a few times was stylist NIcoletta Santoro who worked on stunning editorials with Peter Lindbergh, Paolo Roversi , Deborah Turbeville and Steven Meisel. There were plenty more, but those specific collaborations contained some of the most beautiful photography I’d ever seen.
