The ambassador of Italy gave very high praise to prof. Lubomir Stoykov
Prof. Lubomir Stoykov’s new book World Fashion. Part Three: Italy is already a cultural and aesthetical fact. During its official premiere at Vitosha Park Hotel, it was presented by H.E. Stefano Benazzo – ambassador of Republic of Italy to Bulgaria who is also author of the introductory words. Mr. Benazzo notices: The work of Prof. Lubomir Stoykov has the merit to tell the story of the evolution of the Italian fashion through the stories of our biggest designers from the post-war period until the present, showing that fashion is most of all a result of the labour of really unusually people rather than of more or less inspired persons, more or less anti conformists. I am grateful to Prof. Stoykov, because thanks to him, many Bulgarians who love so much our country, will be able to "understand" the Italian fashion, will be able to explain its language and symbols, rather than only fall in love from first sight.
What does the last work of the famous Bulgarian fashion expert contain? Whom
does the author introduce to us in his work, written for five years? Which
are his scientific interpretations as a professor? Where does his journalistic
stories and evaluation of one of the most interesting styles in world culture
reach to? In his new book prof. Lubomir Stoykov explains the Italian fashion
as wonder and phenomenon. He analyzes and interprets the style and achievements
of such emblematic names in Italian design as Armani and Valentino, Dolce and
Gabbana and Roberto Cavalli, Miuccia Prada and Anna Molinari. He did not skip
to examine the work of eternal stylists such as Elsa Schiaparelli, Franco Moschino,
Emilio Pucci, Gianfranco Ferre among others. The book also includes authentic
interviews with Santo Versace and Giovanna Ferragamo, Lucianno Benetton and
The fashion atmosphere of the premiere was exalted by the designs of Albena Alexandrova – „Roshavata garga”, Jana Jekova, Milka Alexandrova – Buchi, Tania Ivanova as well as fashion companies Kwiat and Miró. They all will present Bulgaria in Rome during the cultural initiative “Sofia greets Rome”.
