XOXO Fashion Designer Gilles Montezin

Dress up will never be the quite same after spending a morning with independent designer Gilles Montezin (Sarah Jessica Parker, Madonna, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Debra Messing are fans) in his New York studio. Thank you Gilles, for being so welcoming and encouraging and for participating with such joy as we tried on, fell in love, and fell more in love with each piece until we each found the perfect thing to wear to the IFB Dress-Up Soiree. The grins on our faces from that morning are a testament to what an amazing opportunity it was to be near, let alone wear, clothes of such beauty. XOXO
