Frozen Roses Inspire Angelo Marani for Fall 2012

MILAN – FashionTV is backstage at the Angelo Marani Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection during Milan Fashion Week. “I drew inspiration from the big chill, freezing weather,” says designer Marani. “I created some prints with frozen roses. Then, along the way, I saw an exhibition by Robert Mapplethorpe here in Milan and so I created a series of black and white roses, drawing inspiration from his flowers.”

“We are in the winter garden in London,” says Makeup Artist Michele Magnani, “and imagine the fog round and there is inside this garden some rose, fresh rose. The makeup is like that because the focus is the lips and we use Russian red lipstick as the very classic MAC lipstick.”
FashionTV talks to Alison Nix, an American model from Boulder City, Nevada. When she’s not doing Fashion Weeks during fashion month, she tries to rest as much as possible and spend time with her husband and dog. The best thing about fashion shows for her is the music. Australian Julia Nobis, who is a musician, also thinks the music is really important.
