Styling for The Soul
An Afternoon of Fashion with Dame Lori, the Duchess of Finesse Hosted at the Alicia Mugetti Design Salon
Aug 15, 2013Dear Alicia,
You have such warm, fascinating guests at your special events -- at the exquisite presentation by Marianne Merritt and Dame Lori Sutherland, I met so many lovely women, including author, Karen Quinn whose new novel, Holly Would Dream, I just finished reading.
In addition to the delightfully witty literary style and plot, including
charming references to Audrey Hepburn and her films, the book focuses on fashion and its history, as well as empowering women, which I know is one of your great passions as a designer. The main character, Holly, works for a fashion museum
and her creative curatorial concepts reminded me of the grand days of Diana Vreeland's monumental exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I wished throughout the book that I could see these concepts mounted in real life. Well...maybe when they (hopefully) do a movie of this book (I understand that Sarah Jessica Parker may be in a film version of one of Karen's other novels, The Ivy Chronicles).
I'm looking forward to visiting you soon...
