  • Description

    This year the "VESTITO D'ORO" (a sort of "oscar") was awarded to the mannequin elected as the "best of the year". It is the third year that this contest takes place at Saint Vincent (in the Val d'Aosta region). It was instituted by the Attanasio art Gallery in Rome and is the goal towards which all the mannequins of this Country make every effort.

    The jury was made up of the promoter of the event Renato Attanasio, by Mmes. Vanner and Rossi and President of the group was the celebrated French fashion designer Pierre Balmain. The event took place in the hall of the Casino (gambling house) della Valee at Saint Vincent. The participants were 34 mannequins who had been chosen in Rome, Naples, Milan and Turin. They wore their own gowns,(and not with models given them by any one Hatelier), thus having to put on show their own tendencies in fashion.

    This year the "vestito d'oro" (a golden pin made in the shape of a gown), was awarded to the roman mannequin Maria Cervaroli who, to be exact, was born in Florence twenty three years ago..
