Gio_Graphy is a fast-paced, fun read following the the effervescent Italian fashion editor, Giovanna Battaglia.

Giovanna’s zest for life is felt through every page, so much so, you’ll want to listen to show-tunes while reading it to match this book’s amazingly-upbeat energy.1675065922552198654-1__IMG_1050_1200--GioGraphyFunintheWildWorldofFashion-1291575974
