The first Fashion Friday of December in Turin marked the beginning of an open air photography exhibition, in the central San Federico gallery, near Piazza San Carlo. This exhibition is part of Sar.To - the bubble installation that celebrates Turin fashion and its designers. Once again, Turin fashion designer Walter Dang wanted to honor local fashion designers, photographers and 25 Turinese celebrities with a series of black and white pictures mounted on doors. on the door knob there's a tag indicating the name of the photographer and its subject.
This exhibit was inaugurated on December 5th at 7pm with a danced performance titled Metensomatose - always from an idea of Mr Dang. A drum roll solemnly announced the arrival of 8 model-dancers to the middle of the gallery which was transformed into a stage.
Both choreography and costumes were inspired to birds however, it was a pretty quick dance to leave the spotlight to the exhibition that will last till December 8th.
The pictures are all for sale and the sales money will go to support FARO the Italian charity foundation also part of Sar.To.
