Welcome to THE DARK CANDY world!

The Dark Candy is not just an online magazine.

The Dark Candy is the only online platform that connects cinema and fashion through the costume designers.

Our audience is costume designers, costumers, aspiring costume designers, fashion designers, costume houses, movie producers, studios services, department stores, fashion insiders in Italy, US and UK.

Behind this creepy-sweet name there are a fashion photographer and director – Sakis Lalas (sakis@thedarkcandy.com) – with a long string of celebrity portraits in his portfolio, and a fashion journalist & fashion consultant – Valentina De Giorgi (valentina@thedarkcandy.com) -: a couple in life and work, a couple dressed in black, a couple that travels extensively and spends too many nights watching old and new movies.

MEET THE HOLLYWOOD COSTUME DESIGNERS

On The Dark Candy we also host MEET THE HOLLYWOOD COSTUME DESIGNERS, a one-of-a-kind docu-series directed by Sakis Lalas, written by Valentina De Giorgi and produced by The Dark Candy. In each episode the Hollywood costume designers speak directly to the public and tell all about this exciting profession.
