We chose the dome of the cathedral in Florence as the symbol of our magazine because the architect who created this magnificent edifice, Brunelleschi, a mathematician and artist, was told it was impossible to build such a structure. Yet, here it stands, 600 years later and still a marvel, because Brunelleschi took on the challenge. His accomplishment changed art forever and helped bring in the Renaissance. With this achievement as our inspiration, we at FVM Global are not just building a magazine; we are building a cathedral to the arts, which prominently includes fashion.
We at FVM GLOBAL MAGAZINE realize that this is a new, adventurous age and seek to recognize those creative individuals who are expanding our consciousness, as well as those who summon up the courage and continue creating, in spite of critics.
The fashion we seek began in and was central to the last century. The twentieth century brought fashion designers to the forefront as never before with the rise of such notables as Coco Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Christian Lacroix, Lanvin, and Balman.
In this new century, the borders of fashion have widened even further. The electronic and digital revolutions commingle fashion with all other art, as well as entertainment and education. In short, the entire spectrum of human activity, including fashion, has been brought together by twenty-first century technology. FVM Global Magazine examines the "art" of our society and how it is reflected in fashion, literature, music, architecture, and film. An art historian views culture in this way, and we endeavor to stay true to art history. This mixture of influences leads to an opening of the mind to new venues. So, we hope our readers will open the door to these new venues and take the journey with us.
