A Fairy Tale was made possible by Fendi at Fontana do Trevi last night.
Celebrating 90 years, Fendi is alive and walking on water, casting creative energy for the 90 years to come, thanks to its creative team: Karl Lagerfeld, Silvia Venturini Fendi and Pietro Beccari.
Little Red Riding Hood crossed enchanted forests and walked on water, wearing Fendi from sunrise till darkness. The 40 models walked on a translucent plexiglass runway, closely followed by Neptune’s attentive gaze.
Dressed in transparencies with floral motives, embroideries, and fur details worked with high craftsmanship – “Haute Fourrure”, which follow from a word game between haute couture and fur. All coordinated with ankle boots.
The story of one of the most amazing fashion shows ever seen, started in January 2013, when Fendi announced a €2,5 million project to restore five fountains in Rome, the birthplace of Fendi.
Fontana di Trevi was made famous by Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, in 1960, when Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg waded through the fountain.
The restoration was completed after 17 months and came to reveal all its full magnificence last night.
