Fashion magazines are fueled by large-scale photo shoots, features with high-profile celebrities, and coverage of red carpet events. A lot of this isn’t possible without the team behind the scenes: the fashion assistants.

Having recently spent a lot of restorative time roaming the valleys in Northern Italy, Giorgetti was utterly smitten by their beauty.  “Mountains are about solitude, oxygen, breath—their energy so potent,” he mused.
