Valentino: Master of Couture

The Somerset House which in the past has been home to wonderful fashion exhibitions like Lanvin and Rankin has just opened the Valentino exhibit. Be prepared for a parade of exquisitely crafted haute couture pieces all of which have been hand stitched and beaded. Vintage hand made couture?...Yes at D&Me we have decided heaven is just around the corner.

Good thing we have our little piece of heaven in the show room, of course in the classic Valentino red:

Bells and Baubles: A D&Me Christmas

One of the most fun parts of Christmas is the parties, where you get to relax and enjoy the people you spend most of your time with.

What does a D&Me party look like you might ask. It was a fantastic evening with Marcelle's legendary cooking. When asked she said "when it comes to my cooking more is more" and that's the way we like it.

Not only was the food gorgeous but it was served in the cutest silverware ever.

And the two stars of the night looking every bit the part: Marcelle the hostess with the mostess and Noriko the amazing seamstress/caroller for the evening.
