Styling Anna

Awhile ago I was invited by Kathrin Leist, journalist and blogger for Two For Fashion , to take part in a very special and fun campaign...


They sent the paper doll above, which is incidentally named Anna like me, all around the world to a conspicuous number of fashion bloggers, asking them to dress her the way they thought she should be dressed in their city.
The occasion was entirely up to us: Anna could be styled for dancing, shopping, surfing,...and of course we could use all sorts of medium, from digital techniques like Photoshop effects, to collage, paint, etc.
All Annas have been included then in a diashow as part of the exhibition Catwalk, hosted by Vogue Germany at the NRW-Forum and featured weekly on Two For Fashion .

To style a paper doll? When I was a child I adored to do it (and occasionaly I still do it...!) so of course I immediately accepted to jump on the bandwagon!




I didn't want to create an everyday look for my Anna, so I thought to play just with simple shapes and plain geometry, building the whole outfits. Other sources of
inspiration were 80s fashion, color blocks (an obsession of mine,
yuo know) and two famous Annas: Anna Piaggi, for her colorful personality (no pun intended!), and Anna Dello Russo, for the sculptural approach to fashion.


It's very fun to look at all the Annas each fashion blogger made; these below are just my favorites, but you can check the whole set here

Anna, this is a *wonderful* idea, and I *love* your colorful and fun interpretations! All the rest are extremely interesting too. I love the idea of dressing the doll as appropriate to each person's particular city - not just each person's particular (personal) taste! I hope they continue to do projects like this!!
