“I love Paris in the springtime
I love Paris in the fall“
I was floating along with the falling golden leaves and then the alarm clock rang!!
It was 6am, this was the day and I was bubbling over with excitement – was it all a dream??
NO it was true!
I had an invitation on my bedside table to be a special guest at the House of Dior.
I looked out of my bedroom window – YES La tour Eiffel was still there!
and I could see all those wonderful pictures of The New look in 1947 floating through my mind.
How lucky am I?
I breakfasted on croissants and chocolate chaud (to give me extra energy for the day ahead),
and having selected my attire for the visit the previous evening, stroked the feather in my hat
and jumped into the waiting car at 5 30 pm.
My excitement level was rising as we slipped in and out of the side streets to arrive at the “quartier of haute couture” at precisely 5 55pm.
Today Globe Bleu was about to enjoy the celebrated
” Vendage de L’avenue Montaigne ” – what a treat.
Everyone from the movie stars who were flown in especially to enjoy the occasion, fashion gurus and stylists, was stunned by the floral decoration of this exclusive event.
The scent which wafted through the air was simply heavenly.
“The New Look” in 1947 created by Dior was to become the icon of this leading fashion house. He wanted to redefine the essence of a woman and he created a revolution in dressing this shapely form.
