Tea, Friends and Fashion

Invitation-to-Fashion-show-Boston-Public-LibraryBoston, May 17 in the Heart of Boston's Copley Square in the historic Boston Public Library, Cathie and I sat at our table in the Courtyard Tea Room. It’s 11;30 so, for now, we are more curious about food than about the main attraction of this event we signed up for, suggested by Metropolitan Fashionista founder and fashion blogger Helena Martin.

Although, I must say that on our way through the library our curiosity was peaked as we passed by the beautiful Italianate courtyard, the vintage map room lounge, furnished and decorated with vintage maps and then on to the tea room, classic, elegant with a warm and relaxing atmosphere that just makes you want for more.

Nara showed twenty-four pieces including custom-made couture, evening wear, and ready-to-wear designs. 

We were amazed!
