I’ve had a brilliant time these past few days!
Last Sunday, I joined the most wild, fashionable and stylish crowd in a virtual party masterminded by the incredible Miss Bentley of Maison Bentley Style; I mingled, chatted away, drank, danced, dozed off and then drank some more… But, most of all, I met an extraordinary group of creative, talented people; interestingly, the common denominator that brought us together was fashion rather than art. Or should I say fashion, as a form of art?

Later on, I was awestruck by the witty and devilishly funny performances of Willem Dafoe and Mikhail Baryshnikov, in Robert Wilson’s adaptation of Daniil Kharms’ absurd story ‘The Old Woman’… A woman that never turns up.
I had some refreshing walks on-, under- and over-ground in Antwerp and was blown away literally, by strong gusts of wind, fortunately only an echo of the devastating storm that hit the UK. Back in Brussels, the after party continued; there was -and still is- so much to discover! To top it all up, yesterday I was welcomed by my colleagues with a surprise breakfast in the office: it was my birthday and the party went on!
And finally, with your help, I have decided who I’ll be tomorrow night: The Bride of Frankenstein. It was actually a tie between her and the Pop Art Zombie, but that was before I cast my vote! Is it just me or do you also see a resemblance to Daphne Guinness?
But, because none of the above would have happened without you: my friends, old and new, ‘virtual’ and ‘real’; my cherished, understanding partner, without whom life would be a long, boring trick with no treat; my dear colleagues for all your support…
A BIG, HEARTFELT THANK YOU! HERE’S IS TO MANY HAPPY RETURNS!
