“Here’s what I think: Fashion isn’t really about clothes. It’s about life.” —Franca Sozzani, 2013
“My view is not just to find young talents, it’s to support them too.” —Franca Sozzani
“Today it’s normal. Photos used to be a support to the text, but we turned things around, reducing the words to a minimum.” —Franca Sozzani
“This is a choice I made 26 years ago when I joined the magazine. Vogue was in Italian but I wanted to speak to everyone so I thought of creating images that were made to talk.” —Franca Sozzani
“Vogue is not a practical magazine, it provides sensations, feeling, moods, you like the photos.” —Franca Sozzani
“Fashion is a mirror of the era in which we live. Why should the magazine be disconnected from reality? It’s not like in the past.” —Franca Sozzani
“Giving back is the new luxury.” —Franca Sozzani
