I am a child of the 50’s born and raised in South Africa. In the early 80’s, I met and married an American, in the entertainment industry, and moved to his hometown Los Angeles. We attended many Hollywood events, screenings, openings, and A-list parties during the 80’s and 90’s. And everyone dressed up in their best designer clothes, including moi.
My then husband and I also travelled to Europe frequently and shopping, in Paris, London, Rome and Milan’s high-end designer boutiques, became part of our itinerary. I was always keenly aware of just how lucky I was, to be able to afford dressing-up like I did – and took extremely good care of my well-loved designer closet.
