Rose Gown

remembering a masterpiece
Onion and roses both have layered effects but we prefer to be near roses much more than onions.  The roses boast the most amazing layering petals of all flowers.  In 2008, I visited the Musee Les Arts Decoratifs in Louvre, Paris.  I was fortunate to see the Christian Lacroix exhibit.  There was a gown that was made with chiffon fabrics in layered petals in soft pink and begonia colors.  I said to myself “he must have gotten the inspiration from roses, he must have.”  I stood there and sketched the gown on my small pocket note pad.  I wrote in Chinese next to the sketch, “a rose-like gown with begonia jacket”  “declared bankruptcy on May 28, 2009”

Alas, masterpieces do not guarantee success in businesses.
