In Franca: Chaos & Creation, The Fashion Industry Remembers A Legend



It\'s difficult to talk about late Vogue Italia editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani without mentioning the many lives she touched, and how she impacted them, too. Sozzani, who died in 2016 at age 66 of lung cancer, was a force beyond measure — in the fashion industry and real life.

It\'s why, in Franca: Chaos & Creation, a coffee table book dedicated to the editrix, so many of Sozzani\'s colleagues write so lovingly and extensively about their shared memories.In her three-decade tenure, Sozzani tackled subjects like drug abuse, diversity, domestic violence, and more.
