TRENDS 2011-2012

Tangerine Dream
Giambattista Valli
Zesty shades of orange give even the most ladylike looks a vibrant youthful flair.
Tame your tangerine - use a contrasting rich colour to temper the shade. Try a touch of turquoise, a dash of hot-pink or a flash of glossy gold.
This hue begs to be worn with tanned, toned legs.
If the head-to-toe look is too bold, introduce orange as a lush accent via bags, shoes and shades.

Gian Franco Ferre

Gianfranco Ferre's Style

Ferre consistently veered away from trends, publicity stunts, and stylistic gimmicks preferring instead to rely on the appeal and interest of careful designs and balanced forms for his collections. His clients included Sharon Stone, Elizabeth Taylor and Oprah Winfrey, to name just a few.

Starting from 1983, Ferre was awarded several times over in the fashion industry for his great talent and magnificent contributions to fashion.

Among the many awards that he earned through his creativeness and stylistic talent and rightfully received are the "Occhio d'oro" in 1982, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1987, and 1989, the "Modepreis" in 1985, the Cutty Sark Men's Fashion Award in 1985, and the "Milanese dell'anno" in 1989.
