Emanuela Pavesi was a fashion photographer. Immersed in the fashion world, fashion was not just her occupation, but an all-consuming passion. From the beginning of the 1960s she started wearing Saint Laurent, and putting together a rich collection of vintage clothes with pieces by YSL Rive Gauche and Couture, Chanel (couture only), Balenciaga and Courrèges, with a few precious pieces from the 1920s. In 1972 she won a Vogue Italy contest and became the fashion editor. In 1973 Emanuela Pavesi completed a degree in Philosophy and Psychology. She has worked with all the great photographers. For example Helmut Newton, David Bailey, Gianpaolo Barbieri, Peter Lindbergh, and Sarah Moon. She has followed Prada’s image from its conception, working on its first ready-to-wear show, and in 1978 producing the book Prada a Milano with the photographer Albert Watson. She left Vogue in 1992 and started working as a photographer. Her work is published in Allure, Vogue France, Vogue Japan, Uomo Vogue, Glamour, Mademoiselle (American edition) and in the New York Times supplement.
