In an exclusive event, the magnificent setting of Villa Necchi Campiglio, in the heart of Milano, turned into the venue where the 15 best new faces selected during the finals of the "Elite New Wave” contest were presented wearing the garments created by the six international brand finalists selected for Vogue Talents Asia: Youjia Jin and Cynthia & Xiao, designed by Cynthia Mak and Xiao Xiao, from China; Gayeon Lee from South Korea; Eliran Nargassi from Israel; Abcense, designed by Yoyo Pan and Jhuosan Wang, from Taiwan; Minimal To, designed by Elisa Mazza, Danila Olivieri and Stefano Sberze, from Italy.

The new faces are very likely to become famous in the coming seasons, fronting campaigns and walking runways. The models were wearing the garments and accessories of the capsule collections created by the designers in collaboration with top-level Chinese clothing brands V-Grass, SC Fashion, Le Saunda, Canudilo H Holidays, Peacebird ande Yi. 

I was among the six Photovoguers, selected by the PhotoVogue team, to shoot the tableaux vivants that will liven up the most beautiful halls of this spectacular villa, in the heart of Milan.
