205. A Thousand and One Nights Life Ball…

Roberto Cavalli205. A Thousand and One Nights Life Ball…

I have traveled the world far and wide but I confess that the Life Ball show last night, the charity event in support of raising funds for the fight against AIDS, moved me in a special way… it was the spectacular setting of the Vienna City Hall square… the theme of the evening… a magic that brought me into a fairytale world…

The incredible scenic design was built around a giant red ribbon representing the fight against AIDS with the runways at both ends and the orchestra in the middle. The lights in shades from deep red to purple along with the music created the magical atmosphere of A Thousand and One Nights…

This is the second time that I have participated in the Life Ball with my creations. The first was in 2001, but for the first time in my life I made my entrance to a fashion show driving a car… not just any car but a Mini Cooper I designed…

I drove the hundred meters of the red carpet at the wheel of the Mini Cooper with Eva at my side, an endless hundred meters crossed to the applause of many friends… dazzled by photographers’ flashes… these are the moments when I feel like a Rock Star…!

Eva Riccobono started the fashion show followed by Karolina Kurkova, Nadege, Nicoletta Romanoff, Nieves Alvarez and Afef with an anthology of eighty magnificent gowns from my collections… it was a particularly emotional moment for me… this vital history of my creations… a life dedicated to the fulfilling of dreams… a life dedicated to enhancing the beauty and the femininity of the most beautiful creation in the universe, the woman!

The models seemed almost to be walking suspended in mid-air… the fabrics flowed in such an unreal way enhancing their bodies as they moved…

Now it’s our turn… I take Eva by the hand and together we walk the red carpet to the applause… we want to thank everyone for the success of this evening that has contributed substantially to raising funds for the fight against AIDS.

We walk the runway a second time surrounded by the models, more applause… in a crescendo that seems endless… a mixture of emotions runs through my mind… I thank God for allowing me to realize my dreams…

Eva and I have shared the last thirty years… years entirely devoted to the creation of our finest collections… the more time passes the more my energy rises… the desire and the passion to create never seems to end… every day a new project… new ideas flowing through my mind…

The evening ended with a gala dinner and an auction of the exclusive Mini Cooper that I have created for this event… auctioned for $150,000 Euros, entirely donated to the research for AIDS. Not bad, I’m really delighted!

With the end of May ends the series of events that led me from Cannes to Vienna… on Monday back to Milan where a series of important commitments are waiting for me… meetings and new projects that require my attention…

Vi abbraccio…

I LOVE YOU
Roberto Cavalli

    Straordinario post!!! Sig. Cavalli posso prendere le sue foto per dedicargli un’articolo in un web magazine Moda Preview International? ovviamente i crediti saranno vostri e anche un collegamento hiperlink con l’indirizzo al suo bellissimo blog. Sono cronista di moda del Sud-america. Sarei anche molto compiaciuta e onorata se Lei un giorno mi concedesse una’intervista per un speciale su Roberto Cavalli Maison in una rivista di moda del Cile, “Report Moda e Estilo”.
