FASHION & LIFESTYLE
The different FASHION & LIFESTYLE Projects of the Atelier Zichy have been taking place consecutively or sometime at the same time.
The fashion magazine DIVA and the book series BIBLIOTHEK DER GROSSEN KÖCHE – the library of famous chefs – was created together with the editor in chief and publisher Veronika Pelikan and, produced sometimes on a weekly schedule, together with a team of editors. The worldwide known jeweller FREY WILLE has his own in-house Grafic Department and appointed designer Aleka Zichy for half a year term for the Design Direction.
In case of VIBRANT CUISINE and BEAUX-ARTS DE FRÉ the Atelier Zichy is consulting and designing any needed Design-Elements as an on-going process.

When Aleka Zichy took over the Design Direction of the fashion magazine DIVA the magazines shares where taken over a 100% by the publishing company Styria Verlagsgruppe and conceptually completely renewed by Dr. Pelikan. The magazine was already established and well positioned on the Austrian market. A great reader community had already established despite of the large international competition like for instance Vogue.
It became necessary for DIVA to introduce the magazine to a younger and coming target group. Therefore the focus was set on a new generation of designers parallel to the existing luxury brands. To satisfy the taste of demanding target group more editorial pages where added. The collaboration with Austrian und international Photographers, Designers, Illustrators, Stylists and Makeup Artists with the excellent editorial team was a very fruitful exchange for everyone involved.

As part of the new release of the newspaper ÖSTERREICH a cook book series published by Wolfgang Maier; each about an Austrian star chef with his most renowned recipes was supplemented to the Sunday paper. The series was expanded in the meantime to cover as well a lifestyles segment.
After the idea of Dr. Veronika Pelikan and in collaboration with Aleka Zichy ÖSTERREICH developed 2006 the format oft he books. It inspired book series of other international Media companies like for instance the supplements of the weekly newspaper die Süddeutsche.
A main objective of the publisher was to show each cook in his genuine ambience and print their most liked recipes. The visual language of Food & Wine photographer Herbert Lehmann combined with the easy reading of the content made the feasibility of recipes for reader very convenient and created in combination an added value.
It was a challenging task to design a coherent book series. The first 16 books where dedicated mainly to the kitchen und recipes of luxury restaurants. The next book series of all together 8 books had the main emphasis on healthy diets created by gourmet chefs, and under guidance of nutritionist Hanni Rützler and under the sport science expert Ronni Kockert. This series was as well mainly illustrated by the photographers Herbert Lehmann and Christine Wurnig.
