Anna Piaggi: Fashion-ology
by Kenny Campbell

The most eccentric dresser in Italy.

Anna Piaggi has had a prolific career as a journalist, stylist and editor. She was born and lives in Milan where she has worked in publications since the late 1950s and is renowned for her work for Italian Vogue. The V&A display is drawn from Anna Piaggi’s personal archive, stored at her home in Milan, and will highlight her extensive collection of vintage couture and designer clothing. Drawings, photographs, faxes, storyboards and Polaroid’s will reveal Piaggi’s working style, and a film will bring to life her extraordinary home and archive.
