The talk of the night was the great masterpiece presented in the center of Alberta Ferretti’s runway show. Named “Gravity”, an aluminium sculpture crafted by Lorenzo Quinn, son of the great actor Anthony Quinn. It is a large geometric structure representing the metaphor of reality that places the woman in the center of the universe.
“The woman is at the center of the universe. She is the force of force of attraction of everything. It is the duty of the man to support and encourage her. I believe that my sculpture has a lot in common with the fashion and clothes of Alberta Ferretti, who has always described the idea of a woman who is aware of her position and strength,” declares Lorenzo Quinn.
Debuted at the Rotonda della Besana, for fall Ferretti presented a highly elegant collection that was full of sensuality and confidence.
