Nous aimons dire à la blague que l’ordinateur de Monica est comme son arrière-boutique : une vraie caverne d’Ali Baba! Nous avons retrouvé une photo d’une cliente rayonnante : Karen Karlsen, une styliste de Los Angeles, aux États-Unis. Karen est un bon exemple de l’expérience que vivent les clientes lorsqu’elles visitent la créatrice parisienne. Successions de coups de cœur pour les créations, essayages dans la bonne humeur tout en discutant… Voici ce que Karen a écrit sur son blogue à propos de sa séance de shopping chez Monica :

“One of my favorite Parisians is the designer Monica […]. Monica is a sort of French Betsy Johnson type, but on a simpler level. The creativity is there, the mixing of fabrics and glitter and fringe and fur is there, but it’s more discreet, more “of a certain age” than “Of a Certain Costume Party.”

I must have tried on every dress and skirt in Monica’s studio. The appeal of the silk chiffon vintage styles in floral prints with sequin detailing was too much to pass up. These things are very frothy and limp on the hangers, yet on my body they came to life […]

Monica, her assistant and I sat and talked and tried for nearly two hours. She showed me her charming sketches, and digital photos of her first grandbaby, Eva. Eva already wears Monica designs and must be the best dressed kid in France […]”

Karen compare Monica à une Betsey Johnson française, un peu plus discrète, mais tout aussi créative. Un honneur pour elle qui l’adore.

À bientôt pour une nouvelle trouvaille!


Karen Karlsen found in Ali Baba's cave!

We like to laugh about the fact that Monica’s computer is like her back store: a real Ali Baba’s cave! We found a picture of a radiant client: Karen Karlsen, a stylist from Los Angeles (USA). Karen is a good example of the experience lived by the clients when they come to visit the parisian creator. They fall in love with creations, they try on clothes while discussing friendly with Monica… read what Karen wrote about the designer on her blog :
