During Sozzani’s run as Editor-in-Chief, she revolutionized how fashion publications connect to art, politics and current events. Controversially, Sozzani themes her editions around current events and issues – such as, the B.P. oil crisis, domestic abuse and plastic surgery.
Sozzani, is also credited with creating the “supermodel” and publishing the first issue of vogue to only feature models of color. She still holds her position at Vogue and continues to produce innovative and contemporary works of art in Vogue Italia. The full length feature can now be watched at http://www.francathemovie.com/ and editions of Franca Sozzani’s Vogue Italia can be read for free at the Adrian G.Marcuse Library in Maxwell Hall. You can find several of the latest editions in our magazine rooms, with numerous Vogue Issues from countries all around the globe!
