Dear Shaded Viewers,

Every year Pedro creates a card for me that represents the year gone by and more than that, the volume of my life. This time I see Lovey in my collection at Cafe Sphinx in NYC in the 80’s and Denise in one of the first dresses I ever designed,  the black and white animal print in 3 ply silk, the trophies by Miguel Villalobos and produced in the atelier of Alain Mikli and this year’s trophy by Robert Mercier.

My perfume DPP which is available at Avery Perfume Gallery. It would be heavenly if they sent me a few bottles…

You can watch ASVOFF13 on my channel on FNL Network. Submissions for ASVOFF14 are now open on

All good things to you and yours,
