‘I don’t consider myself to be a particularly ethical person… But I am fair’ – Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani in The House of Gucci

After covering the Italian fashion industry in Milan for more than 15 years, journalist Sara Gay Forden brings the true crime story of one of the biggest fashion dynasties in history to the UAE.

Years after Maurizio Gucci, heir to the Gucci Empire, was shot by an unknown gunman in 1995, his ex-wife Patrizia was sentenced to 29 years in prison for plotting his murder. Meanwhile the company that bore his name was achieving unprecedented control of others. What was the Black Widow’s motive? How did Gucci weather the storms of the family saga to rise again?

Join Forden for the inside scoop on The House of Gucci, and its much-anticipated adaptation to the big screen starring Adam Driver and Lady Gaga.
