Famous Italian fashion house Stefano Ricci will celebrate its 50th anniversary in Luxor end of March
Khaled El-Enany, Egypt’s Minister of Tourism and Antiquities, said: “Art is one of the key pillars of the Egyptian civilization. It gives us pleasure to welcome contemporary art and fashion trendsetters to promote their creative work against the backdrop of our exquisite historic sites.”
Stefano Ricci, founder of the Italian luxury house, was quoted on social media: “Twenty years ago I visited Ancient Thebes for the first time and I was so fascinated that I decided to dedicate a book to it: Luxor. One night, I daydreamed about creating something important in the presence of the architectural and artistic wonders. Today that dream is taking shape.”
The house’s decision to hold the jubilee in Luxor comes hot on the heels of the successful celebration held last November to mark the reopening of the long awaited Avenue of Sphinxes in the upper Egyptian city.
The program for the events is currently being kept under wraps.
“I like to imagine a path linked to beauty, culture and dialogue that overcomes the distance between my Florence and Luxor. Anything more I could say would be superfluous,” comments Stefano Ricci.
This fashion show will be another opportunity to highlight the diversity of Egypt’s tourist destinations and will attract the attention of the whole world to Egypt.
