Irmas Diary

A shrine to objets trouvé, Tony Duquette, designer to the stars, created his own oriental Xanadu. Located in a ravine, Dawnridge is filled with carvings from Indonesia, pagodas and small pavilions, set against jungle-like foliage and giant eucalypti. After beginning his career creating shop-front and window displays, Duquette became a legendary maverick designer-of movie sets, private interiors and theatrical costumes. His clients include Paul Getty, the Duchess of Windsor and David O. Selznick, for whom he designed the sets for Ziegfeld Follies.

IRMA

brings good news to you.
She lives and travels around
the world, stopping wherever
she sees something interesting,
reporting on what inspires her.
She finds beauty in the
most varied places,
from fashion shows
to art exhibits, from lonely
beaches to bustling cities.

WHERE IS IRMA NOW?

MUNICH

When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
and mixing different
designers together.
