Alessandra Facchinetti Dresses Don Carlo Cast for Swiss Performance

DIVA MOMENT: Alessandra Facchinetti has designed the costumes for Giuseppe Verdi’s Don Carlo opera, which will take place on Oct. 27 at the St. Gallen Theater in Switzerland.
Facchinetti is the former creative director of Tod’s women’s collections, a role she left in 2016 after joining the luxury brand three years earlier. Before that, Facchinetti, a former Gucci and Valentino head designer, had worked with Pinko to launch the Uniqueness brand in 2011.
Facchinetti designed approximately 90 costumes for the main roles, created in the atelier of the St. Gallen Theater. These are uniforms, tailcoats and capes designed for men and sumptuous dresses for women. The designer emphasized the selection of dark colors, ranging from plum to petrol green.

Also in the mix were Pharrell Williams and his wife Helen Lasichanh, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jasmine Sanders, stylist B. Akerlund and Shaun Ross.
Alexandre Arnault, the brand’s chief executive officer, showed off the latest products and touted the fun and interactive environment, as well as the tech innovations for the luxury luggage. Said Von Teese, “When I heard about these digital tags they have, I got extremely excited about that. If it [also] has a bag tracker in it, bonus points. I want to know where that bag is at all times.”
Airport dressing has become something of its own genre among celebrities, who never like to be unprepared for the cameras. Von Teese said, “It’s something I take into consideration because it only takes once when you land in Austria or somewhere and there’s full paparazzi waiting for you,
