"Petergóf" .

 This hat for my "Moskovita" Collection has been inspired by one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to: Petergóf in St. Petersburg, Russia. In translation from German Petergóf means Peter's Court and consists of the series of palaces and gardens built for Peter The Great.  I think it is even more beautiful and grand than Versailles in France. Magnificent place!
 Giant  flower in ombre pink made out of silk, wrapped in web-thin silk organza and embroidered with french silver lace, crystals and crystal lace - all in combination of dove grey with just a hint of blues and shaded pinks. It is so delicate and so overwhelmingly beautiful, it became everyone's favorite during our trial run presentation for Russian Nobility Association in April.
 These pictures were taking during the fitting of the models and it was decided that "Petergóf" hat must be worn with hand painted silk caftan by Roberto Cavalli and scarlet velvet shoes by Guiseppe Zanotti. Our model Anastasia told us that she felt like the most beautiful flower in the world. :-)
 Today is day of the Russian Nobility Ball which will be held in the legendary The Pierre Hotel in New York. So much thought and preparation went into the planning of the presentation there ever since I have been invited to be a part of it. It is a very special day for me and I can not believe it is here! I will share my experience with you next week, until than wish me luck! :-)))
Have a wonderful weekend everybody!

Absolutely stunning. I've been thrown off track. I haven't been visiting my favorite blogs as much as in the past. I'm so busy with Ms. E', etc., but I always feel so relaxed when I look in on your blog.
