Elegant, beautiful, and feminine with a touch of sexiness, that was what world-famous Italian designer, Sergio Soldano strived for in all of his pieces. The innovative virtuoso was best known for furs and perfumes, yet also produced his own brand of clothing, bags, sunglasses and luggage - all with his signature crisscrossed initials. Having worked world-wide as a designer, stylist and creative consultant on multiple film shoots with a plethora of famous actors and actresses, Sergio’s most charming personality made him beloved by all. This resulted in the greatest of friendships shared with actresses he designed for - most notably, Elizabeth Taylor, Gina Lollobrigida, Ursula Andress, Joan Collins, Raquel Welch, Monica Vitti, Virna Lisi, Veruschka von Lehndorff, Grace Jones, and many, many more. Sergio’s legacy lives on now through the scent of his perfumes with aromas that adhere to his elegant style, as well as through his family, especially that of his daughter, fashion model and entrepreneur, Viviana Soldano.
Viviana translated her experience in the fashion industry into her own niche with style and grace, becoming a famous fashion model and the creative director of fashion shoots. Growing up watching her mother and father, Viviana saw the amount of hard work and dedication that it takes to make your passion a reality. Hence, she took that with her when she started her own career modeling first in Europe and Japan, then later in the U.S. where she now resides.
Just like her father, not one to settle, Viviana knew she wanted to do more and give back, so in 2014, together with her husband Bruce FaBrizio CEO of Simple Green, started EGBAR (everything’s gonna be all right) a foundation for protecting the environment and wildlife. It was only natural that they would create something to help the most important animal in their lives-dogs. “It feels like an extension of everything I’ve ever done with the EGBAR foundation, and Viviana truly does an excellent job of being hands on from the beginning to the end,” Amore for Dogs is unparalleled in its vision of how to educate the public and accomplish its mission. Setting up photo shoots, publishing calendars, exhibiting at events, running fundraisers, and with numerous new projects and ideas springing to life, Viviana is mapping out a better life for dogs everywhere.
Continuing with her busy schedule and modeling she hope to save as many dogs as possible. To find more information, go to amorefordogs.org
