About-Us.jpg
 

FROM THE FOUNDER, MAGDALENE...
 

My late mother had the great privilege of being a "hand" in the prestigious…

…Parisian atelier of Elsa Schiaparelli in the late '40's till '51.  Her "gift" to me was the most exacting training that one could ever wish for.  I already had the passion and the imagination, and her hands taught me how to make the fabric come alive with the precision of the cut and stitching.  

Many years later I continued my training in ateliers in London and Paris prior to moving to the Middle East for 10 years.

We opened our doors in New York in 1993 and to date, I can say unequivocally that the pleasure of watching beauty unfold is still very much there.  I find that there is nothing more thrilling and exhilarating than accepting the challenge of the most difficult design that requires patience and coxing to produce the most beautiful of details and to give our clients that extra level of exquisiteness. We believe in the visceral and timeless elegance of masterful works of furnished art which is the best presentation of old world quality and inspired modernity.

We look forward to speaking with you soon to discuss your projects.  Please email us or call the workroom for an appointment.
