The fall winter 2019 fashion show held in Agrigento in the majestic setting of the Valley of the Temples, along the perimeter of the Temple of Concordia, represents the maximum expression of the Italian essence that goes beyond time and space, history and modernity.
The proposal of the clothes portrays a further adornment to the actual environment in which the parade takes place: enigmatic and rich in history.
The preparations lasted for a year in which about two thousand people worked; the clothes that were proposed were 125, all inspired by scenes from Greek mythology; this is perceived, in addition to the setting, from the excellent combination of stylistic elements that refer to the idea of the typical characteristics of the Hellenic-Siciliote costume.
Draperies, corsets, light socks, golden arrows from Eros and the sculpture-hats that adorned the heads of models were the peculiar innovations that most aroused amazement and a sense of perdition; a real journey with your mind and eyes to an extremely remote place.
Thanks to the creation of these clothes, the wonder of Agrigento was brought to the whole world, but more than ever to Sicily.
It was not simply a fashion show, but a way to tell myths and legends, and this immediately conquered high fashion.
The magic elements of this event was told by the well-known Italian director Giuseppe Tornatore, who has been very successful both in Italy and abroad.
It is easy to perceive the reason for the choice of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who managed to do justice to the love they feel for their land and at the same time insert traits and details related to Greek culture.
They made the fairy tale, myth and customs come to life and conveyed a message: art never dies, we must keep it alive; and the two designers managed to do it in the best way, through fashion.
