Your site is like a runway whirlwind in Paris. I felt myself applauding as I scrolled down. My Mom was a runway fashion designer in South Africa and it reminded me of how we assisted her in sewing the sequins on gowns and how I used to try on the gowns and model it for her.

i was smitten with that f21 coat the moment i saw it, but after feeling its fabric in the store, it was a bit scratchy. maybe it would be perfect for layering?
