Franca Sozzani, 1950 – 2016

December 23rd, 2016   admin   Uncategorized Tags: , ,

After battling a long illness, Vogue Italia editor-in-chief has passed away at the age of 66. Sozzani is described as “one of the greatest editors who ever made a magazine,” a “trail blazer and a True Rebel,” and “warm, clever, funny.” In 2008, Sozzani produced an “all black” issue, featuring black models only. The issue was an international hit!  Sozzani was also a goodwill ambassador to fashion for the UN and helped fashion workers in Africa and Asia in raising money to fight hunger. US Vogue editor Anna Wintour had this to say, “She made everything she worked on appear effortless, regardless of whether it was an event for several hundred; a whirlwind trip to Africa to support the continent’s emerging designers; or the creation of yet another newsworthy, provocative, and utterly spellbinding issue of Italian Vogue.” Sozzani was also the recipient of the Swarovski award for positive change. NYCTastemakers offers our condolences to Sozzani’s family and friends.
