“It’s time to sparkle” says Grazia. “Disco diva” says Vogue. “The Glitz and The Glamour” says Elle Collections.

A couple of weeks ago, Antje, a friend of mine, was visiting me and at some point, exhausted after a busy day in The City, we started fooling around, digging in my closet and playing dress up.

So I grabbed my camera and let her turn into a shiny butterfly ….
“Fashion is at once both caterpillar and butterfly. Be a caterpillar by day and a butterfly at night … there must be dresses that crawl and dresses that fly.”Coco Chanel
