In honor of Franca Sozzani will be named an award
It became known that in honor of Franca Sozzani there will be an award.
The Franca Sozzani Award was created as a tribute to the memory and respect of the former editor-in-chief of the Italian Vogue. Franca Sozzani was the editor-in-chief of the glossy since 1988. During this time, she managed to make a huge contribution not only to the development of the Italian fashion industry, but also to influence the world trends. In addition to the development of the fashion world, Franca Sozzani also worked with Condé Nast.
The first award of the Franca Sozzani Award will be presented at the Venice Film Festival on September 1. Last year Francesco Carrozzini’s son Franco Sozzani presented his documentary “Franca – chaos and creations”, dedicated to the work and life of his mother. The first prize in honor of Frankie Sozzani will be presented to actress Julianne Moore.
56-year-old Oscar-winning actress Julianne Moore will receive award from the hands of actor Colin Firth. Julianne Moore awarded “for the same masculinity, strength and determination, combined with excellence in art and a strong civic stand.”
Franca Sozzani was truly an outstanding person. She headed the main edition in the fashion world, Vogue Italia, for 28 years. During this time, she was able to create a competitive publication, although the Italian Vogue comes out exclusively in Italian. Franca Sozzani provided novice fashion photographers and designers with a platform for work.
Also Sozzani during her reign in Italian Vogue made from gloss one of the most scandalous and provocative magazines in the entire network Conde Nast. Franca Sozzani boldly raised in the pages of Vogue topics that she considered important. Before her, such things were not mentioned in glossy publications. Franca Sozzani boldly spoke in Vogue about racism, domestic violence, plastic surgery, environmental disasters and diseases of modern society.
Behind Franca Sozzani remains the title of the first person in the fashion industry, which raised the theme of racism in fashion and culture. Six years ago, she released Black Issue, a number that featured exclusively black models. The release became the most sold in the history of Vogue.
