Not only has Mario Testino showed his talents in celebrity portraits or abstract art but also lending a professional hand to many high fashion brands including Gucci, Versace, Dolce and Gabana, Hugo Boss and Burberry.
Testino has a unique way of channeling the designers style into his own work. For example when Testino worked with Tom ford on his spring summer 1996 ad campaign he found a way to channel Tom Ford’s creative trademarks showcasing Ford’s low cut designs and abstract colouring.
