Anyone who knows anything about fashion knows that Paris is one of THE centers for fashion in the world! Growing up, my grandmother sewed all of her own suits, dresses, and blouses using fabrics from purchased in New York City, and pattersn from Vogue. She and my mother taught me how to sew when I was 8 years old, and I made my own clothes through college. My first perfume, a gift from grandmother, was Chanel No. 5! Seeing all of these desighner names that I was familiar with since childhood, purusing fashion magazines and pattern books was surreal! From Piaget, to Dior, to Chanel, each one of these boutiques was a treasure to behold! For many years I wore J'adore Dior perfume, and I love this quote of Christian Dior's, "I have designed flower women." I would say he has designed for those who ARE flower women!
