The Interview | Anna Dello Russo for SymphonyPosted in The Symphony Style File on: 16/11/2011
This is a bittersweet moment because it is the last in the series of our Anna Dello Russo videos. We have taken you behind-the-scenes at Anna’s meet & greet with her fans at Symphony, shown you the informative and unprecedented Livestream panel discussion with Anna and a fistful of regional fashion personalities in collaboration with Savoir Flair and we debuted The Short Film with ADR for Symphony yesterday. We had so much fun celebrating our birthday with Anna and developing all of these creative projects but all good things must come to an end… and so, without further ado we give to you ‘The Interview | Anna Dello Russo for Symphony’
This video is of the full interview (excerpts of which were used in The Short Film) we did with Anna in the Arabian Desert on the 31st of October 2011, asking her questions like “What has been the most negative thing to happen in the fashion industry over the last two decades?” and “Who is Anna Dello Russo’s muse?”. Watch this inspiring twenty-minute interview in full below now…
Anna has so much passion and energy for her craft – it is so uplifting to be around. Do you love? How would you answer these questions?View Comments / Make a Comment

Anna Dello Russo in the desert!Posted in The Symphony Style File on: 10/11/2011
Fashion icon and Vogue Nippon Creative Director, Anna Dello Russo, visited us at the end of October to host our birthday celebrations in style. We hosted three events in collaboration with Anna – including two in-store events and a livestream panel discussion in partnership with savoirflair.com. On Monday the 31st of October we whisked Anna off to our favourite (secret) desert location – the beautiful farmhouse where we shot the Autumn/Winter 2011 campaign. Anna loved seeing ‘the real Dubai’ and we enjoyed the beautiful weather and scenery chatting about the culture and traditions of our beloved UAE. We feasted on local food and interviewed Anna for our short film (which we can not wait to share with you next week!). Here are some exclusive behind the scenes pictures from our day in the desert with Anna…
Come back soon Anna! We miss you!
