Curated by Polimoda, the newest episode of Polimoda Duets, a series of documentary interview videos involving some of the most outstanding cultural figures of our time, features Marco Bizzarri, President and CEO of Gucci.
As with all collaborations, the fashion institute opens its doors to art, music, cinema and modern culture, broadening its collaboration with key industry figures in a new exclusive video format. In each episode, a global cultural legend divulges their take on the modern world with a renowned interlocutor, ranging from top-notch journalists to scholars and experts in the field.
The second edition, conducted by journalist and writer Christian Rocca, features an exclusive interview with legend Marco Bizzarri. Creativity comes second nature to the man behind Gucci’s mind-blowing success.“I think fashion is about emotion and trying to change the status quo. And to change the status quo, you need to take risks, and risk is not an option. I mean, you have to risk, otherwise you’re bound to fall,” explains Bizzarri.
From his initial meeting with Alessandro Michele to the non-secret of a business worth 8 billion euros, the luxury king reveals his secret sauce – or lack thereof – in front of the cameras, focusing on the importance of human connection in an oversaturated market of social media and technology.
With this exclusive collaboration, Polimoda is keeping in-depth dialogues with icons of the global cultural landscape at the center of our educational universe, reminding the public that the school’s industry connections are paramount to achieving success in fashion.
