From the end of the 60s to the start of the new millennium, there was one figure in the world of fashion who embodied its spirit and told its story live: the journalist Anna Piaggi, one of the most important voices of the international fashion system. Celebrated for her eccentric outfits and an intimate friend of designers Karl Lagerfeld, Dolce & Gabbana and Manolo Blahnik, Anna Piaggi was the living testament to the cross pollination of art, society and culture, changing fashion and proclaiming its success on a global scale.
The film retraces the story of this amazing journalist, touching on the capital cities of fashion - Paris, London, Milan -and making use of selected archive footage, unpublished photos provided by the archive of Alfa Castaldi – her husband and noted fashion photographer – and the testimony of some of the most known designers in the world.
