Paris day 4 +5 (sorry about not posting yesterday- the day was a huge catastrophe).... and yes that is me wearing 3 coats + my team wearing the Yoruba
hats! Crates arrived yesterday (late) and we worked through the night.....a 3 day install turned into a 1 1/2 day install - thanks to my team (amazing) we finally finished.....the show opens in the morning..off to get much needed rest....

Paris Day 3... today was the first day of installation at Maison - very interesting + extremely challenging. The electrical + slings were not installed and 14 crates (from of our US shipment) have still not arrived....on a positive note the set up team is amazing, the space + location are perfection + the show itself......I am in awe + words escape! We have nothing like it in the US to compare- the beauty of the products, the professionalism are beyond words - for a designer like myself - it is simply trade show nirvana - I am hooked + have found my new design home (away from home).....so 24 hours into set up...team of 8, 3 shipments (from 2 countries) are received + awaiting the 4th shipment (delivery in the morning) I am feeling overwhelmed but hopeful - nothing that a hot bath, room service + a good movie can't cure.....here is a picture of the raw space + my wonderful team...more tomorrow!

we took a boat tonight down the Seine River....amazing views of Paris...the Eiffel Tower at night is truly spectacular....the white seagulls flying over head against the dark night sky was magical......now off to bed...I have 1 day before I install + must see Notre Dame once again (my favorite) good night!
