The philanthropy/ Marni’s Flower Power

We are accustomed to anything. Fashion shows are an extravaganza, sometimes an art gallery, sometimes a circus, sometimes a painting, sometimes a flower full of life. An elegant, feminine, powerful and fragile flower like those Marni gave to the fashion world. Following the Italian label’s show with it’s richness in diversity and colourful shapes on September 21st, creative director, Consuelo Castiglioni celebrated Marni’s 20th anniversary with an open invitation of fresh spirit. In spirit with the combination of bold signature florals and earthy pieces that defined the SS15 collection, people and fashionistas were invited to the city’s baroque Rotonda della Besana into the one-day-only Marni flower market. The bright explosions of bonded pressed lacquered flowers and metallic touches on bonded leather blousons of the collection impressed us the usual Marni way and this “after show” made us feel part oan ongoing year-long 20th anniversary part. Marni Flower Market was the first of the Marni Prisma events that will happen throughout the following months reflecting on the prismatic approach of the brand and it was into this universe of life, where the fauna made of animal sculptures, created by Columbian former prisoners accompanied the wrapped in paper printed with patterns from the Marni archives flora that we felt blessed. The benefits of this blooming market went to children’s charity Vimala, aiding Tibetan children in India which made this event even more spiritual than Marni already is.
