Celebrating 150 years of a unified Italian nation, Peroni has invited renowned writer Colin McDowell to curate a unique photographic exhibition featuring the imagery of Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Ferragamo, Gucci, Missoni and Prada.
‘Masters of Style: Celebrating The Stories Behind Italian Fashion‘ brings together the defining moments in creating iconic collections and ad campaigns via the personal reflections of the Italian designers themselves.
Colin McDowell comments: “The expression ‘Made in Italy’ has become a global codeword for an embodiment of style, conveying Italy’s position at the forefront of international trends, inspiring and influencing the designers of tomorrow as it has done for over half a century.
When it comes to self expression, effortless style and flair, nobody does it better or more naturally than the Italians. Peroni Nastro Azzurro also embodies and upholds these typically Italian values so it makes perfect sense for Peroni to bring these Italian fashion icons together for the first time in what will be a truly amazing and enriching experience for visiting guests.”
