With quiet an unusual fashion show, 11.11.11 was truly a magical night for the magnificent Ms. Alberta Ferretti.

Although I wasn’t there in person, I had an opportunity of witnessing it live through the online streaming from their website.

The fashion event was to open the 79th edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo , a men’s fashion week in Florence, Italy.

Unlike regular fashion shows, she decided to walk down personalities of the real world who have contributed in various fields of life.

The Italian designer created 30 beautiful dresses for real women which were sashayed down by personalities like the actress Camilla Belle, Georgie Henley, Marisa Berenson, British socialite Poppy Delevigne, blogger and former model Chiara Ferragni, Carmen Dell’Orefice and many more.

All the celebrities donated their paychecks to Jordan River Foundation which is run by the fabulous Queen Rania of Jordon.

Instead of the usual high beat tracks played during  fashion shows, Ferreti called in an Italian singer named Elisa to perform an acoustic set, who made the atmosphere even more breathtaking.

The Spring/Summer 2011 collection included delicate lace and chiffon dresses in nudes, pastels and grays, bubble skirts, dresses trimmed in fur, coats in furs, and lace pleated dresses.

My favorite was the gorgeous white wedding dress presented by Poppy Delevigne towards the end.

We got to see a lot of stiff bodies on the runway, but who could blame them, after all they are REAL people. And, real people are never perfect.

All in all it was a mesmerizing show, never seen before ,walked by famous and her loyal clients.
