Sozzani's Black Issue in 2008, which she dedicated entirely to women of color, only featuring black women in the issue's pages. This was a loud cry by Sozzani against the lack of diversity in the fashion industry and the magazine was so popular it was reprinted three times — something utterly unheard of in the publishing world. In September 2016, just three months before Sozzani's death, the editor's son, Francesco Carrozzini, released a documentary chronicling the life and impact of his mother's work and vision, "Franca: Chaos and Creation." It is an intimate portrait of the woman who rocked the fashion world, disrupting its norms and setting new standards for the industry at large. In February, Assouline released a book on Sozzani by the same name. The career of the courageous Sozzani comes to life in more than 400 pages, by way of the images she helped to mastermind and notes written by her fashion industry friends that speak to her personal and global legacy.
