Hope for Emilia

Athena for Emilia

Vivien Emerald – of Desir – is not only designing phenomenal gowns, but is creating them specifically to support some very critical and important causes. Her signature cultural awareness is reflected in Athena – her offering for the “Hope for Emilia” program [ View Video Here ]. Athena is the goddess of wisdom, courage, and inspiration, certainly three traits of those who have put forth their effort to help the people of Northern Italy, many thousands who were left homeless after the earthquakes and subsequent aftershocks in late May to early June of this year.

Athena for Emilia

The flaming red color and figure-hugging silhouette of Athena remind us of not only of the lines of ancient Roman dress, but also of the great Italian sirens of the silver screen. Vivien’s homage to the rich heritage of Style Italia helps us stay focused on the objective of providing relief and support for the people of the Emilia-Romagna region. All of the proceeds from sale of this gown and the designs of other participants, you will see stamped with the Hope For Emilia logo, in this and other blogs, will go to directly to the people of Emilia-Romagna.
