'We wanted to challenge the standards of quantity with which fashion has always measured itself, to express a desire for rebirth and to celebrate diversity and uniqueness in a way that becomes a collective experience. We photographed the 100 cover stars individually in a studio in New York. The photographer Mark Borthwick is one of the long-standing contributors to Vogue Italia who returns to the pages of the magazine after decades. The cast brings together, side by side, 100 people from a wide range of fields based in NYC. We asked each one of them to tell us their life story in a one-minute video. The result is a highly significant document, testifying to a unique moment in time,'
Verderi said in a statement.
