ANNA PIAGGI, THE LEGEND

Anna Piaggi left a legacy that is in a league of it's own. She was a remarkable women and style icon who was never afraid to wear exactly what she wanted, a little eccentric but with a huge following. She was always adorned with a spectacular head piece, and turned heads when she entered a room. Milan hosts an exhibition on her fascinating legacy which runs concurrent with Fashion Week next week, with the opening event taking place at the Palazzo Morando on the 21st September, and open to the public from the 22nd to the 30th of November. If hats take your fancy, you should not miss this opportunity to get a glimpse of her world of fantasy.  She was a remarkable contributor to the fashion industry for many years, editing and writing on the subject.
 
Quoted from the website of Camera de la Moda Milano:
 
My hat is personal.  It is what contains the soul, the feeling, the sensation that moves this little world around”. A world where Chanel Haute Couture creations live alongside a Prada baseball cap and with which the “mad hatter” Stephen Jones, Piaggi’s friend and exhibition curator wanted to recreate the atmosphere.
