FRANCA: CHAOS + CREATION



"Franca: Chaos and Creation" is a documentary produced by Franca Sozzani's son celebrating her career as editor in chief of Italian Vogue and the controversy she created with her artistic vision. 

Sozzani made Italian Vogue what it is today, she grew it from a generic fashion magazine to one highly focused on art and storytelling. Her editorials were controversial and progressive. She would express her views on current worldwide issues through fashion as it was the only way she knew how. People believed that she was glamourising sensitive topics such as her editorials on domestic violence and the BP oil spill, however she argued that it was simply drawing attention to subjects that required it. This is what made her such an innovative editor, she was able to use fashion as a way to tell stories like fashion magazines had never done before and has inspired and formed the modern fashion magazine.

I found the documentary highly inspiring, Sozzani's innovation and creativity will always remind me of the power I hold as a storyteller.
