Today was the most amazing day. My students in the Advanced Style seminar for IED Roma had the honor of meeting and interviewing legendary costume and set designer Lucia Mirisola, at the gorgeous Rome Cavalieri Hotel. Lucia began her career as the assistant set and costumer designer for Fellini's, La Dolce Vita and later oversaw the set designs for most Luigi Magni's classic films. It was an honor to speak with this accomplished 83 year old and hear her philosophy on style and design. Lucia told the class that when making a film you can't separate one thing from another. Everyone must work together to paint a beautiful picture. Here are some photos of Lucia dressed in the most amazing vintage Missoni. I can't thank the Rome Cavalieri Hotel enough for hosting us in their beautiful suite!
IED Roma will be putting together a video of our workshop and interviews so I can share more of Lucia's story with you soon.
