THE DARK CANDY is a fashion-consulting agency with a penchant for the movie industry.
Behind this creepy-sweet name there are a photographer – Sakis Lalas (email@example.com) – with a long string of celebrity portraits in his portfolio and a journalist & fashion consultant – Valentina De Giorgi (firstname.lastname@example.org) – a couple in life and work, a couple dressed in black, a couple that travels a lot and spends too many nights watching old and new movies,
Sakis and Valentina, thanks to their more than 15 years of experience in the world of fashion, have acquired a major know-how, a strong knowledge, a huge address book (fashion journalists, stylists, insiders, showrooms, buyers and many more) and a long established relationship with suppliers and manufacturers in Italy.
With diverse backgrounds, Sakis and Valentina have a creative, strategic and business-minded approach: they work on creative and commercial direction across branding, communication, production and distribution.
So THE DARK CANDY is able to offer a wide range of services, tailor made and adapted to each client’s needs. It supports and develops special projects on specific demand in both the fashion and movie industry. The agency operates between Milan, Los Angeles and London in order to cover the global market, with particular a focus on European and US markets.
