Remembering Anna Piaggi: A Tribute

The entire Fashion Universe was in mourning on Tuesday 7 July, when we heard that Fashion writer and regular contributor to Italian Vogue, Anna Piaggi, who is best known for her eccentric style and blue hair, has left us at the age of 81. A constant victim of mockery, not once did she bother or care about what everyone else was saying about her personal style, and because of that, like Isabella Blow, she has become a legendary fashion icon. She was an inspiration to many, including milliner Stephen Jones and designers Vivenne Westwood, John Galliano, and  Karl Lagerfeld, who once said that “Anna invents fashion”.

Like the other Annas – Dello Russo and Wintour – in the fashion world, Piaggi is the embodiment of fashion, so comfortable in her clothes as though it was her second skin, and showing the world that fashion was certainly a way of life for her.
