paris is dead – creation generations

December 2nd, 2016

In the late 1980’s Irene Silvagni fought for new generation of talent until she had to face a tough choice – sell-out or pack-up.

(Hint: she didn’t sell-out).

Fast-forward to today.

Can Paris still give talent a chance, can there a new creation generation ?
