Alta Roma – Fashion on Paper


Dear Shaded Viewers,

David Gil and I arrived in the beautiful, sensual city of Rome. I had not been here in years but last night before my flight I spoke to my friend Mr. Pearl and he suggested that we have lunch or dinner at Nerone and that we must visit Michelangelo’s Moses. Of course they were the very first things that we had to do.Thank you Mr. Pearl you are better than the Louis Vuitton guide.


The reason we are here is the AltaRomaAltaModa Fashion on Paper n.0 edition held at Hadrian’s Temple, Piazza di Pietra,, please stop by. There is an amazing tribute to Diana Vreeland called Vreelandesque curated by Maria Luisa Frisa. a festival of independent magazines, a stand for ASVOF, Fashion talks over the next 4 days and a screening of ASVOFF today at 19h.

Federico Poletti with Maria Luisa Frisa. After the opening we were invited to dinner at the Villa Medici. It was all out of a dream.
