L Maison de Couture, CheeseDay.Fr and NEW Single Letters

Yesterday was the last day of Couture Week. I received an invitation via my brother-in-law to attend L Maison de Couture's showing put on by his nephew.
Very grand indeed
Held at the exclusive club, Circle de l'Union Interalliée  at 33 rue Faubourg Saint Honoré
A fabulous collection
Made-ro-order evening gowns
Calling Joan Crawford...
Each gown takes well over 300 hours to create. Even more for the embroidery alone.
Lush flowers the perfect accompaniment.
A stunning lineup for L Maison de Couture. And a rave review in Vogue the next day.
Artistic director, Isabelle Moser, an alum of John Galliano and the Christian Dior atelier, comes out for a round of thrilled applause.
More L Maison de Couture show photos on Flickr.
My brother-in-law's nephew, Rudine Mottaghian, a co-founder of L Maison de Couture. Why do I have no lace dresses to wear to couture showings?
More fashion photos on FLICKR.
Monday was the 1st ever www.cheeseday.fr held at Pavillion Ledoyan along the Champs-Élysées 
So many to taste
I would not be surprised if all of France's 300+ cheeses were represented in one room.
We were given large, empty platters, a knife, and wine glass.
Let the tasting begin!
A lineup of Calvados apple brandy from the lightest to the most intense with companion cheeses.
All you can eat and drink of wine and cheese for 15€ from 11am to 11pm.
I'm sure CheeseDay.fr will be back next year. Plan your trip accordingly.
Quite a few PBers have requested to buy just one letter.
Now you can.
The Paris Sketch letter of your choice will ship out in a large flat cardboard envelope. No creases and frame-ready.
Single Paris map letters can be had too. Plus Parisian souvenirs included with both.
End of a wonderful day, the cheering lineup of Russian singers in Concorde Metro.

  5. Thank you! As always, you buoy my winter spirits with so much beauty. In Vermont we do have excellent cheese but fashion and luscious store window displays, not so much. I was especially impressed by Wei Wei birds.

  14. I love the idea of a single letter coming in a larger envelope so you do not have to fold your fabulous art. Will be great for all who want to frame your work!!!! Fashion show looked like fun!
