Everybody is Everybody ….. as the song goes

Everybody Have to start Somewhere, Somehow, Someway, Someday & Sometime ……

When I was young

It seemed that life was wonderful

🦋A miracle, Oh it was beautiful, Magical and all the birds 🐦 in the trees🌲 They could sing so happily, So joyfully ……


Adriana Sassoon in São Paulo 1970’s 
Inspiration comes from out of this world I believe. 

I’m just a vehicle who can process the information and translate to material objects. 

Everything that exists in the world has been created by someone, somewhere, somehow by divine insight. 

I am grateful to see the world and my life the way I see it. 

I try to see beauty everywhere. 

If I can make the world a better place I will try not only to make my life better, but the lives of the ones who come across my path.

“We learned to put discipline in the haircuts by using actual geometry, actual architectural shapes and bone structure. The cut had to be perfect and layered beautifully, so that when a woman shook it, it just fell back in.”

“To me hair dressing means shape. It’s very important that the foundations should be right.”

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, sits off the mainland on an island in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf. Its focus on oil exports and commerce is reflected by the skyline’s modern towers and shopping megacenters such as Abu Dhabi and Marina malls. Beneath white-marble domes, the vast Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque features an immense Persian carpet, crystal chandeliers and capacity for 41,000 worshipers.

Abu Dhabi is full of archeological evidence that points to civilizations, such as the Umm an-Nar Culture, having been located there from the third millennium BCE. Settlements were also found farther outside the modern city of Abu Dhabi but closer to the modern city of Al Ain. 
Abu Dhabi has a diverse and multicultural society.

#MAKEAPROMISE  Louis Vuitton partners with UNICEF

I AM here tonight with #makeapromise  UNICEF & LVMH Let’s Help Children around the World. 

Louis Vuitton Foundation 

Louis Vuitton and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) signed a partnership on January 11th to support the most vulnerable children around the world. Louis Vuitton has launched a major campaign to raise funds for UNICEF.

Louis Vuitton’s partnership with UNICEF will help support the organization’s efforts to protect children exposed to natural disasters and conflicts, providing health care, nutrition and education. “UNICEF is a strong and reliable leader in humanitarian action. Together, we can make a real difference to children in the most vulnerable situations,” said Michael Burke, Chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton.

To raise funds, Louis Vuitton has designed a special product, the Silver Lockit, inspired by the unpickable tumbler lock invented by Georges Vuitton in 1890 to protect the contents of trunks. The Silver Locket is available in both pendant and bracelet models. For each sale, Louis Vuitton will donate $200 to UNICEF.

Louis Vuitton has also created a digital campaign to raise awareness and encourage as many people as possible to support UNICEF’s actions. This commitment is symbolized by a “pinky promise”, a popular way among children to signify that a promise has been sealed by entwining their little fingers. People are invited to share their pledge on social networks via the hashtag #MAKEAPROMISE.


My favorite piece was of course The Campana brothers Milan 2015: a swinging cocoon chair by the Campana brothers and seats made from leather petals by Raw Edges are among the contributions to a collection of portable furnishings for French fashion house Louis Vuitton.

The campaign went live on January 12 in Los Angeles at the sixth UNICEF Ball. Numerous Louis Vuitton friends were on hand to support the initiative. They joined Nicolas Ghesquière and Léa Seydoux, the Maison’s new muse, who interlocked their pinkies to make a promise.

Through this ambitious global partnership Louis Vuitton encourages everyone to get involved and support UNICEF by making a direct donation or by purchasing the Silver Lockit, and to show and share their commitment on social networks with #MAKEAPROMISE.
