In the afternoon we were honored with a visit by a London PR agency which represents lots of international topdesigners. At half past four, everybody was back in the store’s to make it a beautiful night.

The evening was ended by visiting Soho, where the streets were filled with hipsters and transvestites. After a couple of drinks it was time to go back to the hotel. The next that was going to be a busy one. Research, appointments and tapering the gallery.
