Jamie Bochert Serenades Crowd at Haider Ackermann's Pitti W Show in Florence

Jamie Bochert Serenades Crowd at Haider Ackermann's Pitti W Show in Florence

>> Haider Ackermann was invited to present a Pre-Spring 2011 collection — even though he does not typically do pre-collections — as part of Pitti W, the womenswear portion of Pitti Uomo currently going on in Florence.  He promised that "my friend Jamie Bochert will be playing piano and singing" at the show, and that's just what happened yesterday.

Chandeliers were hung from the ceiling at the Palazzo Corsini, where the show took place, and Bochert was the first model out, walking in silence before taking a seat at a grand piano. She opened the the show with a piano medley, which included a rendition of Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," and was accompanied by a violinist and a cellist. Garance Dore, who captured the show, described the proceedings: "I’ve never heard her voice and I was absolutely blown away. It was soft, suave, and dreamy, like a summer night. Then slowly, to her music, the models started out. After a few sublime songs, Jamie got up. The show was over."

A video of Bochert's performance, below.
