Designers Pay Tribute to the Late Franca Sozzani on Social Media

Legendary Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani died this morning at age 66. And today, major designers such as Donatella Versace and Valentino Garavani reacted to the news on social media, posting tributes and photos to platforms including Instagram.

Born in Mantua, Italy, Sozzani rose up in the Italian fashion scene, and was appointed editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia in 1988 (the same year Anna Wintour took the helm at American Vogue). She was recently the star subject of the documentary “Franca: Chaos and Creation,” which debuted at the 2016 Venice Film Festival.
