Nicola Formichetti interview Page 1
Is it just us, or does it seem like fashion designers are incapable of thinking before they speak? Nicola Formichetti, fresh off his last controversy, is at it again. The designer’s latest slip-up was a swipe at the elderly.
Lady Gaga‘s stylist Nicola Formichetti has had it up to here with allegations that he doesn’t like working with fat people. Formichetti, who’s also the creative director of Mugler, has spent most of the last 24 hours filling his social media channels with photographic evidence that he has worked with people who aren’t thin, contrary to what’s reported about him in his recent profile in W Magazine.
Nicola Formichetti is a stylist, but he’s also an artist, a visionary, and, most importantly, an original. Few people in the industry take risks with the ease and assuredness that Formichetti does. Also, it doesn’t hurt that his main client is Lady Gaga, a personality equally unafraid of going against the grain.
