The Woman Warrior

Christophe Decarnin, Balmain

In Afghanistan, tradition has recently become law allowing men to rape their wives and making it illegal for a woman to go out in public without being escorted by a male. Young Afghanistan women are finding this law to be obsolete at this point in time of change and evolution. They are fighting for their women rights.
When women around the world are fighting for their rights like no other time before. It's no wonder the fashion we're seeing is not of a graceful doll but of a strong sturdy equal.
Frida Giannini, who serves on the Board of Directors of PPR's Foundation for Women 's Dignity and Rights had her vision of the Woman Warrior embossed in this fall's collection of GUCCI.

Valentino: The Last Emperor

"Pure escapist fun . . . It reveals a world that is slipping away even as the cameras roll" -The New York Times

If you're a fashionista and haven't watched VALENTINO THE LAST EMPEROR, shame on you. The film was held over following the two weeks of showing at the Film Forum in New York City.
All sat in the theater in inspired awe of how this man had a vision of how he wanted his world to be. To encapsulate it in one word . . . BEAUTIFUL.

" I love beauty. Is not my fault" - Valentino
