20th Anniversary Party in Paris

After the show in Paris, I had my 20th year anniversary party at the Renard, in the Marais area. This place used to be a small theater before, now is renovated and still keeps its original art-deco feeling, very chic and nice.
In the middle of the venue hangs my archives! This rotates slowly like a merry-go round. Mannequins with lampshade heads are wearing some of my favorite outfits from the past. The party theme was “Tsumoriland”, lots of fun stuff, great atmosphere! Erick planned this party, thank you so much Erick!

20th anniversary party

So many people… People who supported me, some of my royal customers… thank you everybody for coming!
Big surprise… Audrey Tautou came by! She`s been supporting me for years, even wore my dress for the Cannes premiere before. I loved her in the Coco Chanel film, she`s beautiful and friendly. Thank you for coming Audrey!!

Boutique barbette

There was a cocktail party at the Paris stand alone shop!
In Japan, we don’t often have cocktail parties but in Paris, we have it once or twice a season when the window display
has changed.
We prepare champagne and some food so everybody could relax and enjoy trying on many clothes!
It’s very nice to have fun shopping!!
