NEW BIG NAME IN ITALIAN FASHION ... MARIU' DE SICA!!
Here are samples from the first fashion show of MARIA ROSA DE SICA: a woman's collection inspired by the 1950s song "Parlami d'Amore Mariù" which her grandfather sang. Her grandfather was VITTORIO DE SICA whose movie "Bicycle Thieves" won an Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
As you can see from the long dress kimono style, Maria Rosa was inspired by Oriental designs.
Her website is http://www.mariudesica.com/?page_id=7&lang=i
Maria Rosa comes from a very talented family, her own father CHRISTIAN DE SICA is a very popular and adored Italian actor/showman. My husband, who is Japanese, loves his movies. We had the pleasure to meet Christian in Testaccio, Rome and we took the opportunity to take pictures with him.
Here I am with Christian de Sica in a cafè in Testaccio. He was kind enough to wait until my husband ran home and got the camera so we could take a picture with him!
