I want to dedicate my very first clothing collection to my brotherly friend , an angel on earth, now an angel in heaven , Gianfranco Serraino .

Gianfranco Was a talented Italian film director and photographer, fierce animal’s rights activist, a friend , a brother and a dreamer.

Besides being a Sicilian gentleman , he was the most gentle soul I ever met.

We had the chance to know Gianfranco when we moved to Los Angeles. Our friendship became an anchor in difficult moments , and a motivation to achieve my dreams even when sometimes I stopped believing in myself .
He is the one who helped me at first to photograph my very first collection .

At the time I had nothing but a dream and a vision. He taught me that’s all one needs!

He wasn’t there for my very first runway, on February 2021, at the New York fashion week, he watched it from heaven, but his wife Lys was!

Gianfranco is and will be missed by myself and my husband George and whoever had the privilege to know him.

I want to remember him through some of his work. “When the director eye meets a camera magic happens “ ( my IG post at the time )

Please always remember this time on earth is very limited. Hold on to the good, forgive the bad, Spread nothing but love, godly love, Brotherly love, love for all God creatures : AGAPE
