Dear Diane, dear shaded viewers,
The show was a tribute to the Italian showgirl, Milly, born in 1905 and lived in Alessandria . In addition to her success as a showgirl, Milly was a singer and an actress, she was also famous for her fasinating life, and her tormented love affairs (real or presumed). She never fllaunted those affairs: Prince Umberto of Savoy, Cesare Pavese the italian writer,and Mario Soldati. The collection is an ode to the allure of Milly, the fashinating lady, I love the bright theatrical red on coats and clothes and the precious handmade embroidery patchs. The collection is romantic, poetic and rich much like Milly's love stories.
