During her three-decade tenure as editor in chief of Vogue Italia, Franca Sozzani brought an inimitable energy and voice to Fashion journalism. Never afraid to address the subjects other publications avoided, such as domestic violence, as well as drug abuse, and recovery, she was a pioneer lauded for her efforts to be incisive yet inclusive: July 2008’s Black Issue, featuring only models of color, sells for $2,500 in the market today. Franca: Chaos and Creation is a fabulous tribute to a visionnaire and her work during the most intensely creative period of the fashion magazine. 408 pages.
Dimensions: 15.2″ L x 12″ W x 2.6″ H
