10 Corso Como x Assouline Celebrate: The Launch of Franca: Chaos & Creation

| February 11, 2019 | Parties

On Monday February 11, 2019, Assouline and 10 Corso Como hosted a celebration of Franca: Chaos and Creation at the 10 Corso Como's Seaport District boutique. The book centers on the life and work of Franca Sozzani during her three-decade tenure as editor in chief of Vogue Italia. Featuring photos by industry luminaries like Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh, Paolo Roversi, and Mario Sorrenti, from both Ms. Sozzani’s personal collection and the Vogue Italia archives, the book is an unprecedented collection of fashion’s greatest works and talents participating all together for the first time.


While sipping Perrier-Jouët champagne, guests had the opportunity to access the online sale on YOOX.com of The Franca Sozzani Private Collection – a curated assortment of Franca Sozzani’s wardrobe donated by Francesco Carrozzini, including 397 ready-to-wear and Haute-couture pieces, alongside 190 accessories.


The evening also marked the official announcement of The Franca Sozzani Fund for Preventive Genomics at Harvard Medical School & Brigham and Women's Hospital, established with Francesco Carrozzini and Dr. Robert C. Green to help prevent diseases by leveraging genomic information and cutting-edge precision medicine. All proceeds from Franca: Chaos and Creation from Assouline and the Franca Sozzani Private Collection sale on YOOX will go to the fund.
