UPDATE - The Sartorialist casting in Rome!!!


As a lot of you know, last summer I shot the campaign for OVS in Milan. Well it was a big hit and OVS have asked me to shoot their upcoming summer 2011 campaign in Rome.

As a great way to update the campaign and be more reflective of what I do, I have conviced OVS to let me cast a portion of the campaign from you, my audience.

So here's the deal...
I want casting that looks like my blog - men and women, all ages, all races, all sizes... with one commonality, great style and charisma.

The casting will be held

10am - 2pm
l'Hotel Cicerone
Via Cicerone 55
The room's name - Sala Cesi-Valadier.

The people should be from Rome or the surrounding areas. You must be available for the shoot dates
The people selected could be used as main subjects or as extras.

Secretly, I'm really excited to be able to meet some cool Sartorialists whilst in the Eternal City and have a chance to celebrate some of my audience in an Italian national ad campaign.

Anonymous Helen said ... (5:46 PM) : 

congratulations it sounds like it's going to be fun and I wish I was in Rome so I could checkout the local cast. I'm sure I wouldn't qualify myself but then that's one of the reasons I love your blog, it's where I get ideas and learn. I look forward to seeing the results of your new project.

I really liked the OVS campaign last summer! I saw it in full in the newspaper I read when I'm back home on holiday... actually it was I big surprise to see The Sartorialist's pictures on my favourite Italian newspaper.

I look forward to seeing the new campaign!!!

I'm sure Melbourne Australia is reasonably close to Rome. we'd love to be there!


Anonymous CiCi said ... (6:23 AM) : 

This is very exciting... except for one thing. Your blog does not feature "all sizes". Dont get me wrong, I love this blog, check it every day, got the book, but while you do occasionally feature larger men, you never feature larger ladies. In the book there is ONE picture of a larger lady, and I never see them on the site, Love your work, it is a fashion fantasy, but please, I think most of your readers will know that there is a distinct lack of variety in sizes. I'm not talking about showing obese women here, but some ladies more than a UK 12 would be a start!

I was ready to hop on the first train to Rome...till I read 'people should be from Rome'. That's how much I love the idea and this blog and also because you'll never happen to be in the most un-stylish city (Brescia) where I now live.
Can't wait to see the campaign!!

That's a great idea. Good luck ! Will there be more those kind of castings, f.e. in Barcelona ? x x

You and Coco Chanel are who inspired me to never leave the house "undone."
