During London fashion week, I was excited to meet Gracie again, three years after our first encounter in London.
Always radiating, full of energy and ideas, it was her mind that engineered this beautiful shooting in the recently completely refurbished Strand Palace Hotel.

We opted for the lusciousness and the excessive decoration , to really show how these clothes remain divine even when there is a lot of bling - bling going on. Gracie was inspired by her Italian roots to really get into the role and explore the Dolce vita phenomenon, even if it was just for the editorial purposes.

This is why we love Gracie, her charisma, her natural charm.The whole article is available here.
