Charlotte - Style & fashion

Bonsoir, my name is Charlotte. My mother, ex-model for Saint-Laurent, is American but I’ve lived in Paris since I was 4 years old. Since my mother was often abroad for fashion shows, my French grandmother, a dressmaker for Chanel, taught me the way to become a real Parisian.

Although I’m the personal shopper for my friends, my strong points are marriage and elegance.

«Mi piacerebbe che, tra cento anni, si studiassero i miei vestiti, i miei disegni»: ecco quello che, nel 1992, diceva il grande stilista Yves Saint Laurent. Non aveva alcun dubbio che nel 2017 un museo avrebbe reso omaggio alla sua opera, proprio nel cuore della sua casa d’alta moda…
