In mid-February of this year, I received an invitation via email to Giulietta’s Fashion Week After Party in the Meatpacking District. This looked like a fun event to me.
But, who is Giulietta I wondered? I discovered that it’s the name of a company founded in 2011 by Italian designer, Sofia Sizzi, who named her company after Fellini’s classic movie, Giulietta of the Spirits.
One person who always fascinates me is the actress and Oscar winner (the only Australian to win twice) Cate Blanchett. It seems that every time I open a magazine/newspaper or watch TV she’s there – looking absolutely splendid in some incredible outfit.
Until recently, I liked watches but did not fully appreciate them. As I began to learn more about watches and what makes them so special - from the craftsmanship to the hours of manual labor to the fact a well made watch can last longer than one's lifetime - they took on a whole new meaning.
