On the 7th January at the Palazzo San Giorgio " “Salone dei Lampadari “in Reggio Calabria was presented the Calendar 2013 of the Regional Chamber of Fashion Calabria-Dedicated to "GIANNI VERSACE".
"Reggio Calabria is the kingdom where I began the story of my life: the tailoring of my mother, the haute couture boutique. The place where, as a child, I began to appreciate the Iliad, the Odyssey, the Aeneid, where I began to breathe the art of Magna Grecia. "Gianni Versace
For the cover of March it has been selected the sinuous draping of the dress by eco-designer Francesca Franco, evoking images of the clothing of Magna Graecia such as the Chitone , the Himation and the Clamide.
Through the study of drapery Franco Francesca wanted to pay tribute to Gianni Versace style, and in collaboration with her sister Imma Francesca (seamstress) has created the gown at its eco-friendly workshop in Benevento-Italy!
Francesca Franco has always been very close to the taste Versace especially when the he creates evening dresses in particular using draping and cutting on the bias!
The choice it has been one of the dresses of "The Greek Myth" collection by Franco Francesca in Emerald Green Color, a shade of green very bright and shiny, with a background of blue to represent the Mare Nostrum (The Mediterranean Sea)
This Color has often been used by Gianni Versace too ! But for Francesca Franco it has been its unique color to represent the Green Fashion for being the first eco-designer in the world to create high fashion with recycled and eco-friendly fabrics!
In addition, the Emerald Green Color was elected the color 2013 and then again Franco Francesca is able to anticipate trends and tastes just like the great Gianni Versace.
The photographic reportage of the event in Reggio Calabria was followed by the great photographer Giovanni Di Dio
