Roitfeld, who knew how to exploit the provocative fashion potential of raw flesh long before Lady Gaga arrived on the scene, is known for her fearless and often daring productions, which capture the spirit of the times perfectly. "It's a fantasy world, and I'm a dreamer and teller of tales," she explains on set. In the early days of her career she worked with the most famous photographer in the world at the time, Mario Testino; and in the 90s played a major role, as stylist for and Muse to Tom Ford, in his successful and radical reinvention of Gucci. Her creative partner of many years' standing, Gan, has been creating beautiful, inspiring imagery his whole life long and is known and revered around the world for his avantgarde, pioneering style. He himself is very modest about his achievements: "Beauty and fashion - it's simply my world".
