IN ACCADEMIA TALKS | Susanna Ausoni and Antonio Mancinelli

In the frame of our Milan Campus, a new appointment of the “In Accademia Talks” was held; this time with Susanna Ausoni and Antonio Mancinelli, who presented their new book “The art of styling – How to tell oneself through clothes”.

A special conversation to investigate, through the history and work of one of the most interesting stylists in the sector and the vision of an established journalist, the history, changes and future of the stylist profession.

Everyone talks about them, very few know what they do, many confuse them with designers. Yet stylists, once known only to professionals, have become one of the most important figures in understanding how the fashion planet works. If designers design clothes, stylists play with combinations, build an imaginary starting from the creations of fashion designers and remix them, transforming them, launching messages and creating trends.

Susanna Ausoni, born and raised in Milan. The world of fashion intercepted her in the nineties, when she was noticed for her eclectic style inside the Fiorucci store. She began her career as a music look-maker and within a few years became the style manager of MTV Networks, thus combining her two main passions, fashion and music. For over ten years she has collaborated with fashion brands and record labels, in a young and international context, helping to define the professional figure of the stylist. She has curated and still cares for the style of numerous prominent personalities in the world of music and entertainment (Mahmood, Elisa, Carmen Consoli, Francesco Gabbani, Noemi, Francesca Michielin and many others). Her last (but not least) adventure is My Room Vintage Shop, a shop in the heart of the Milanese Cinque Vie, a personal Wunderkammer, where you can find from 70s vintage pieces to iconic Prada garments up to pieces customized by her.

Antonio Mancinelli, born in Rome but Milanese by adoption, he has curated various exhibitions, including Romanzo breve di moda maschile (A short novel of men’s fashion) at the Galleria del Costume of Palazzo Pitti in Florence. He wrote a monograph on Antonio Marras, Moda! Fashion: Box and other books. In addition to writing, he teaches in schools and universities, first of all the Accademia Costume & Moda. For over 15 years he has been chief editor of Marie Claire Italy, and has collaborated with Vogue, Panorama, Il Foglio, D – La Repubblica delle donne and Amica. He holds journalism seminars in various universities and never stops cultivating projects. Also what to wear the next day.
