On Tuesday, August 7th, 2012, Anna Piaggi passed away. The mega-publication which she worked for, VOGUE Italia, confirmed the news and stated that she was age 81 at the time of her death.
(VOGUE Italia x Anna Piaggi, August 2011)
Piaggi made a bold name for herself within the ranks of the international, fashion industry, by having a keen eye for what would be new and next, and by frequently wearing over-the-top couture pieces mixed with high-end and low-end designer garments; she almost always topped-off each ensemble with electric-colored hair and/or a statement hat.
(Anna Piaggi x The Sartorialist, March 2008)
Piaggi was consistently inspired by fashion and its ever-changing guard, and has, in-turn, inspired tons of fashion followers (including me). I have no doubt, that she will be sorely missed... and I pray that God rests her soul and blesses her family :-)
