A job that meets all expectations


Commitment and creativity, equal success. The proof is that few or none in real life can match this perfection that he created with his own hands. The work that came out of his imagination meets all his expectations.

To make the 15 dresses in the collection were needed…

For days and nights, in full lockdown, Farhad Re cuts the triple organza of silk in a virginal whiteness. The contours appear delicately, and Pygmalion / Farhad applies himself to carving a light, sculptural, architectural silhouette. No less than 500 meters of organza were needed to create the 15 dresses of the collection.

Letting go – after all these months of isolation

Behind the opacity of the material looms the grace of the woman as seen by Farhad Re and whom he calls Galatea, with skin white as milk, and with whom Pygmalion fell in love … The purity of renewal, of freedom, of letting go – after all these months of lockdown- is also found in the perfectly mastered and hand-shaped geometric shapes that form each dress. An invitation to dreamlike escape, but also to transform the lines of the silhouette like this long chiseled coat, enveloping, comforting, in which we want snuggle up …

Farhad revisits the myth of Pygmalion giving wings to her Galatea to make her discover the world

Very attached to the very essence of freedom through his personal history – the mother of the artist of Persian origin fled her country to regain the freedom to think and dress as she sees fit -, Farhad revisits the myth of Pygmalion by giving wings to his Galatea to make her discover the world. A real desire to share this need for the absolute, this quest for the sublime, this inclination to shape in the loved one a soul mate.

Il primo grande viaggio? Quasi 15 ore di aereo per attraversare il mondo, ed arrivare in fondo al Sud America, tappa la bella Buenos Aires, dove ci rimane per ben dodici anni. Qui la prima esperienza lavorativa, nell'editoriale Rizzoli, che aveva acquistato nella città tanto amata da Jorge Luis Borges una nota casa editrice. Negli anni ‘80 torna in Italia, a Milano, questa volta per lavoro in Rcs, dove si occupa di immagine e grafica. Inoltre viaggia, fotografa e scrive storie dal mondo con approccio esplorativo sempre attento ai dettagli. Oggi dirige Agenda Viaggi con un gruppo di persone molto speciali. Vive a Monza ma spesso si sposta a Verzimo, un paesino del XI sec. in provincia di Vercelli, in una casa piccola, soleggiata, per metà ristrutturata, un giardino incolto e mobili tutti diversi per epoche e stili, come la vecchia tavola da surf testimone di lunghe cavalcate sulle onde in California o come l'eccentrico menù del caffè Granola a Copenaghen, la foto scattata alla cisterna di vetro colorata da Dumbo, Brooklyn, dell'artista Tom Fruin, e le belle stampe che immortalano la piacevole solitudine sulla spiaggia di Margate nella contea del Kent in Inghilterra.
