Pitti Uomo 93rd edition seems a very good one. I’m not talking about figures, I just say that because of the central courtyard being packed with all sorts of people. Amongst them there are those awfully dressed up and desperately waiting for photographers to shoot them. But then I found this pearl of a girl, Suwa, a fashion illustrator from Seoul.
I was walking fast from an appointment to the other when I saw her quietly sketching two girls with water colours. I stopped and walked back to enjoy the scene. I wanted to talk to her and ask her more, but I didn’t want to interrupt her. Since I was already late, I just took the picture above and left, regretting the chance to speak to her.
Later on, I went to Les Benjamins presentation and, as I was leaving, I realised she was getting it. I stopped her and found out that she is working on a long term project to portray fahion people attracting her attention on vintage magazines pages.
Needless to say I was 100% flattered when she asked me to pose for her and totally fascinated by the way she worked so gently and self-confident at the same time. She was poetry standing in hall of an old theatre. She is my Pitti heroine of the day.
