Fashion Preview. Show your dream

I am happy to be invited as a blogger to Fashion Preview. Before moving on to jewelry let me talk a bit about the event. For the 7th time it makes an epicenter for talented young fashion creators, their fans, photographers, fashion professionals, media and simply beautiful people.

Le Labo

Yesterday I went to Trois-Rivières to the exhibition of contemporary jewelry “LE LABO” curated by Noël Guyomarc’h and the director of École de Joaillerie au Québec de Montréal, Mr Stéphane Blackburn. This exhibition is the gallery visualization of a project dedicated to creation, exploration, experimentation and reflection. “Le Labo” (the laboratory) takes place over two years on a monthly basis with small group meetings.

Cartier necklace for the Fifth Avenue building

Architect Robert W. Gibson designed this Neo-Rennaissance 1905-built mansion. In 1917, his wife Maisie (on the painting) fell in love with Pierre Cartier’s double-strand necklace of 128 natural pearls, the jeweler offered a trade—the $1 million rare necklace plus $100 for the 52nd Street and Fifth Avenue mansion (at the time valued at $925,000) which would become his new boutique.
