To those unaware of the evening of taste, fashion and food. I write to describe the evening and hopefully entice.
On October 14 th, Matsu was invited to hold an event at Off Center in Weston. Yes, a bit off the beaten path of Newbury St, but what a delightful experience. The night focused on the stimulating the senses. My absolute favorite thing, and with a captured audience… even better ! The owners of this fine little cafe known for their French / Mediterranean style home cooked foods, paired with Italian wines donatedby Il Cappriccio of Waltham. All combined under the stars on this balmy October evening, we presented a collection of clothing, jewelry and accessories to those there to play.
My message was to engage and give yourself permission to frolic, from within. In this day and age of disturbance, media wise and news wise… we have only ourselves to stimulate, and create a haven of satisfaction, and to honor what we do have to be grateful for. Not enough of us allow this playfulness to rise out of the inner soul… It is so important. More than many would like to admit. Therefore, I created and produced this show to entice, seduce and stimulate all the senses…. Below I show 3 photos of the event, beginning with my 17 year old who skipped ballet to work this show. She is casually wearing a beautiful washed wool black coat, with an ombre dyed hem. the skirt, a rich navy is ruffled and made from wool gabardine. under the coat she wears a scoop neck micro fiber top from Majestic, for Matsu. Our private label luxurious line of tops. Please note the sneaks. The coat and skirt… Comme des Garcons.
Next we have Saskia, proudly wearing rich plums, and touches of magenta. Her extra long sweater duster and pants are designed by lilith bareth, the french designer known for her romantic fashion sense, with her line, better known as Lilith. A staple at Matsu. She is carrying a wonderful olive leather tote.I thought the turban…. scarf actually, was a fantastic touch.
Lastly, you will see my daughter Aya, grabbing my hand, as we parade through the intimate crowd after the show and I proudly present my models and staff, whom without I could never have pulled this all off. Their constant faith, belief and support is so inspiring, that I just keep going forward.
Aya is wearing an adorable little tulle dress designed by Rozae Nichols. We also have skirts in the same tulle and lightly sequined fabric… An easy thing to wear. and for Me…….. A sassy Majestic Turtle neck,,, who would think a turtle neck could be ??? think Audrey Hepburn.. and a wonder Scarlet Tutu Classic romantic length. I paired the Scarlet with robin's egg blue tights. Love the combo…. hope you do too.. Enjoy these photos, and please come into Matsu so you can play, and pick up a complimentary essay I wrote on How to wear black and feel colorful, from the inside out !!!
Enjoy, and don't restrain yourself from playing. Sick of your closet and what is in it ? preventing a frolicking moment in time getting dressed ? I am for hire. The best investment ever. Let's go through what you have been holding on to… for that "special occasion" that never transpired. We are all guilty.
See you soon. Let the warm October air stimulate you.
Yours, in Joy,
