It was another
eventful evening at Moynat, to say the very least.
Cameron Silver was special
guest, where he graciously presented the new tome he penned “Decades: A Centuryof Fashion” in tribute to 100 years of fashion.

The title says it all,
so no need to explain its contents nor its fabulous photography (no surprise knowing
the mastermind behind it).
The master retailer of
vintage couture, dressing celebrities such as Nicole Kidman and Katie Hudson,
Cameron was most out of the ordinary.
to his word, “If it’s in fashion, it’s not fashion”
, Cameron wore a long tailed
cobalt blue tuxedo suit reminiscent of the 20’s and complimented by feather
tipped slippers. I must say that memories of Liberace crossed my mind.
Cameron, you immediately are drawn to his warm smile, wittiness and personal
approach. He genuinely makes you feel unique.
He was the perfect Beverly Hills gentlemen, with that perfect touch of

Confined behind a display
almost the entire evening promoting his book, the crowd’s attention gradually
veered away from Cameron and gravitated towards the burlesque diva Dita Von
, who graciously made her away around the boutique’s two floors.
Quiet, demure, appearing
in a sophisticated, sexy 40’s look and wearing those to die for Louboutin
stilettos (that I by the way wrote about in a previous post) Dita conveyed
grace, yet a touch of melancholy.
A perfect fit with a
bygone era of almost 70 years past.
Moynat was the perfect
venue for such an event, as it too, just as Cameron and Dita, revisits decades past
to inspire today.
