May you forever rest in eternal peace @francasozzani1. Thank you for believing in me and selecting me nearly 3years ago for @vogueitalia's Vogue talent. Thank you for believing so profoundly in African designers and talent. You were truly a visionary. @smaino my condolences to you and the @voguemagazine Family. What a remarkable legacy she has left us with ❤. The biggest lesson I learned from her: To be powerful yet incredibly humane. #francasozzani #rip
