Claude Montana

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Today David Herman and I went to have a tea with one of my all time favorite designers, Claude Montana. I will never forget the impact his shows had on me when I first moved to Paris.  They made the hair stand up on my arms.

We decided to give Claude a carte blanche, like we did to Rick Owens 4 years ago. We asked him to choose his favorite film. You know what it was: Auntie Mame starring  Rosalind Russell and Forrest Tucker.
