NATIONAL STYLISTS TEAM
SOLIDARITY RUNS ON
THE STYLE WIRE
When they challenged me to create a National Stylists Team, the only ones have never be "taken the field" together, in support of the needy, I decided to try. In 2002 born the National Stylists Team that saw its debut in a major event organized together with Ivan Capelli and the National Pilots Team. The event titled "Solidarity runs on the style wire" was created to commemorate the first year after the tragedy of September 11. Thanks to the activity of networking that is part of my DNA, I got in touch with Jeff Capaccio, then president of NIAF of San Francisco who enthusiastically agreed to join the initiative supporting the project with a prestigious letters from the New York NIAF, which I still keep with emotion. With emotion I keep all the letters of adhesion of the top names in Italian fashion business as: Giorgio Armani, Kean Etro, Angela Missoni, Massimo Ferragamo, Diego Della Valle, Renzo Rosso, Francesco Trussardi, Carlo Rivetti, Santo Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Carlo Capasa and many others. Inside the NIAF it was created an association (the Twin Towers Foundation Release) in support of orphans of Italian Americans firefighters perished in the collapse of the twin towers. The initiative welcomed enthusiastically by all major Italian designers and entrepreneurs gave birth to the World National Stylists Team. The match played at the Arena di Milano, 11 September 2002, with a football match between the National stylists Team and the National Pilots Team, which ended with an important dinner, that has raised more than 150,000 Euros.
I have left in my heart the desire of another challenge.
