    I met an authentic artist, musician and author, who grew up loving art, listening to jazz and dreaming of Edith Piaf. Marianne Mirage, a former rebellious tomboy who didn't want to wear a skirt, is now a young woman with a magnetic charisma. Pale skin, freckles, feline eyes, black hair in an afro.

Then we have the sell-out Caravaggio exhibition at Palazzo Reale, in Milan, the endless queues outside the Uffizi and the flourishing of art-related shows and publications. In an era when fashion shows become entertainment and are placed in historic venues, it makes us wonder what the link between Art and Fashion is.
