It has opened the exhibition “Diana Vreeland after Diana Vreeland” in Venice at the Fortuny Museum, curated by Maria Luisa Frisa and Judith Clark, telling with fashion – exclusive creations of couturiers as Cristobal Balenciaga, Elsa Schiaparelli and Mariano Fortuny, Jean Cocteau -, magazines, books, catalogues and artworks about the legendary Diana Vreeland who changed the way of thinking, seeing  and talking about fashion. A smashing event celebrated with a cocktail, organized by Francesca Bortolotto Possati, President of Bauer’s, at Palazzo Moncenigo where I was pleased of seeing friends as Gabriele Monti featuring as panelist as well as Mario Lupano and many other celebrated experts in the international meeting “The discipline of fashion between museum and fashion curating” which will be held on 10th March 2012 in Venice at Ca’ Badoer from 9 am to 7 pm. A not to be missed happening to think about the museum and the museology and culture of fashion.
