THE SUNDAY TIMES
The renowned agency Models 1 had approached and commissioned Gianni to cast his eye on an unknown girl called Fanni Bostrum. She was not a conventional fit for a model at 5ft 5in with scruffy long hair and a tomboyish attitude. But after his signature consultation, Gianni sensed the depth and versatility of her character and created a cut that was both bold and strong, yet retained a softness where the hair could move, allowing her to express herself differently on fashion shoots. ‘The Fanni’ became a global success and made international headline news on television, print and radio in the US, Asia and Europe. Gianni was acclaimed in publications from Vogue and Harper's Bazaar to The Sunday Times.
