wearing a white silk jersey dress by giorgio di sant’angelo.
the fashion story that it was part of is equally gorgeous, called white magic.
the copy reads after the fall out of excess ( the eighties) a cleansing spirit breaks through. not simply a colour, white has become a statement. a romantic template for optimistic dressing.
this was a real turning point in fashion, and over the next few years a massive shift occured in what people wore, the silhouettes and shapes, and the way magazines represented fashion.
