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.

she has always had a strong interest in clothing after being introduced to

He'd try clothes on me and ask, "What do you think?" He was pushing me to do my hair lighter - to bleach it. So I was a fashion addict by the time I was 11 years old. I'd wear a miniskirt and patent-leather boots.
