Party Monsters dancing with Scavullo

As you should have read in our about page this blog was part of a research about the style of people working in Milan’s fashion industry. Soon after this project  we found jobs, we were interns, assistants, blah blah blah and never found the time to post our findings. We identified three ideal groups, that related to fashion according to the publicity of their line of work: the A-listers (PR people), the Dreamers (mostly editors and journalists) and the Bon-Tons (mostly designers). We made a short video to introduce the groups, I hope you enjoy it!

We also did a photoshoot with photographer Settimio Benedusi and three of our key subjects. Will post it soon!

If you live in Milan and find yourself portrayed in the video please don’t worry it was made with the sole purpose of presenting our findings, and we have no interest in broadcasting it any further than this blog.

Special thanks to all the fancy monsters!

The fancy horror

We will take a closer look into fashion insiders living and working in Milan to discover the unspoiled monsters walking around town.

It will be a terrifying act! starring fancy monsters and their portraits.

Don’t miss the show.
