Ciao Giovanni Gastel - My special story

Ciao Giovanni Gastel - My special story

When I learned of Giovanni Gastel's death I was in the car with my husband. We had closed an important deal and I was happy. I take my cell phone and read the news. I was suddenly saddened.

Giovanni Gastel was not only one of the greatest Italian photographers of all time, no, for me he was and will be something more.
I was 16 and my eating disorders were present and I was not well, in fact I was terribly ill. I needed to dream and distract myself: the magazine MODA, directed by VIttorio Corona was there staring at me, I took it, I started leafing through it and since then my little paradise opened up.

Giovanni Gastel's photos conquered my senses and from that moment on I had a pretty good company with me.
He will never know how much he has helped me, but I know and I thank him for that.

My love for fashion was born that very day.

In a recent interview, he talked about his ups and downs: "In 1993 it was one of the most splendid moments of my career: I was doing Dior and Nina Ricci in Paris, Trussardi and Missoni in Milan. Suddenly, within three months, I lost all the customers. At "Donna", the art director Flavio Lucchini went away and we all left, Dior kindly dismissed me, Trussardi no longer needed my photos, Missoni and Krizia also… a terrible thing! I walked around the studio like a caged tiger. What happened? It's not possible! I wondered. But life is like that. Then I analyzed my work, I realized that maybe it had aged a little, maybe it needed updating and in fact, after a while, everything went back to going splendidly, "he said.

A story that made him even more special.
Have a nice trip and thank you.
