Convivio 2012

June 8 to 12th 2012: Convivio is back, the initiative that allows everyone to support AIDS research (ANLAIDS Lombardy-National Association for the Fight against AIDS) and populations in Emilia, Italy, who were tragically hit by recent earthquakes. Convivio is a trade show born in 1992 from an idea of Gianni Versace, Gianfranco Ferre, Giorgio Armani and Valentino, and pursued with enthusiasm since 1998 by Franca Sozzani, editor of Vogue. 

This year's Convivio was hosted as usual in the halls of Fieramilanocity, Milan, and it's one of the best occasions to buy great fashion at discounted prices. Among the star of this year also the designer of the French Maison IRFE Olga Sorokina and her friend as well as a welcomed guest, French actress Laura Weissbecker. Laura is the revelation of the Festival, considered the new Grace Kelly of the silver screen.  

This year's Maison Irfe' table set up, was inspired by the referrals to kitsch art dominating the theme of the night. Bundles of feathers , taken from the Autumn / Winter 12/13 collection and various floral arrangements followed one another in an impressive composition. The dominant color is was purple in all its nuances because this used to be the favorite color of Princess Irina Romanova. The installation was enriched with violet and white crystals, symbolizing the luxury and femininity that distinguish the brand.
