Monte Carlo Snapshots

The highlight so far was connecting with people who have true passion for their craft.  The Chambre Monegasque de La Mode works very hard to make their fashion week especially welcoming.


The Bellevue from the terrace of the Cafe de Paris can’t be beat- and despite language barriers, the conversations were lively as they were insightful.


Mario Boselli, above, spoke representing the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana.  He spoke of Milan’s continued success within the Beautiful and Well Made ready to wear garment sector, he then advised me personally to go to Shanghai.  It’s such an inspiration to see a well-educated and articulate woman speak of her national history and its influence on post-modern fashion: Olga Egorova representing the Caspian region poised above, center.  Myself: not as poised but petite and energized nonetheless.  Next photo, the creator of Caspian Fashion Week, left, and designer Nezha on the right are elegant and charming.
