FRANCA SOZZANI FUND x YOOX
In 2016, fashion lost one of its leading figures when Franca Sozzani, the editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia for twenty-eight years, died of illness. The online platform Yoox has just announced that it will be hosting a private sale with designer pieces from Sozzani’s private collection, starting on February 11th. All the profits from the sale will go to the Franca Sozzani fund for Preventive Genomics at Harvard University’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, cofounded by her son Francesco Carrozzini recently. The fashion editor was known for her great devotion to medical research and prevention, so it only makes sense that her passion for helping others is continued even after her death. Her amazing collection of clothing, bags and shoes will be divided into five categories: The Eclectic, The Black Tale, The Londoner, The Unconventional and The Dream Dimension.
The sale will also be accompanied by the release of Carozzini’s biography of his mother, Franca: Chaos and Creation.
