How to dress for... a fitting appointment


When shopping for new outfits or for a fitting appointment
I find it easy to wear a simple dress and high heels.
I keep my make up bare and light, as a nude
canvas for the new clothes I am buying.
A loose ponytail will keep my hair out of the seamstress way.
If I visit a "sarta" (seamstress) I bring some refences of what I like
to have done.
I also bring a couple of different bras type,
 the right undergarments are the key element
for a well dressed woman.
I try to be a little sun tan and rested, everything will look better on.

Paco Rabanne Legacy

The iconic Metal Dresses could not be more
in fashion right now.
There is something so fresh and appealing to the semplicity of
these creations.
I reremember playing  (more de-constructing) one when I was
a child...I wish I have thet dress right now.
I am on a quest to find a vintage one.

Rabanne started his career in fashion by creating jewelry for Givenchy, Dior, and Balenciaga. He started his own fashion house in 1966. He used such unconventional materials as metal, paper and plastic for his outlandish and flamboyant designs.

That is maybe the creative iter behond his metal dresses.

Paco Rabanne is known for his costume designs for such films as Barbarella. Also Françoise Hardy was a big fan of Rabanne's designs. The popular French singer Mylene Farmer continues to bring the extravagance of Paco Rabanne to her live concerts

Beautiful Francois Hardy
