Python jacket is one of those essential peices of my wardrobe that I couldn’t do without. For the first day of NYFW: New York Fashion Week I wore a 70s inspired outfit.
If you love python like me look my second favorite python jacket. I hadn’t planned to go to NYFW because fashion shows don’t interest me particularly. Incredibly, but true, I prefer watching them at home wrapped up in my fur cover with a python border accompanied by a cup of tea, save pictures of the pieces that interest me the most, make mood boards and comment by phone with friends, designers etc…
They were for days full of meetings for future projects, shooting and events. For superstition I won’t say more and remain vague..I think I slept about 20 hours in total. NYFW was one of the bets of my life. The house were I stayed was in Brooklyn, a penthouse from where you could see all NY: it was a dream. On my bed there were two fur covers, one in sapphire mink and and the other in sable.
On the first day of my New York experience I had a special meeting. I met Eddie Reich, president of ER Fur Trading Corporation, a very great company with a very important history, that has been passed down through four generations.
Eddie was CEO of J. Mendel’s for ten years before returning to family business.
Er Fur produces fur pieces for big fashion brands in America, China, Italy, France, Israel, Hong Kong.
In the photos I am with the president Eddie Reich.
Visiting their offices was a very interesting experience, and I also had the possiblity to choose a fur from one of the brands of their production: Oscar de la Renta.
A fur that was completely embroidered by hand. You will see it soon on my blog.

About the python jacket that I’m wearing in the photos: do you remember this python photo of 2013?
I worked with an AWESOME team. This post is dedicated to them and I want to thank them:
Richard Swartz: I’m not sure that the infinite space the blog offers me will be enough to describe Richard’s incredible character. Richard is the owner of Mano Swartz the oldest furrier of the United States. In August I did a big project with him, please click here to see the beginning of it. Soon I will launch the second biggest part of that amazing fur project.
Richard in this part of my life is like my mentor. We are everyday in touch and we talk hours and hours about our fur sector. From Richard I’m learning things that no school and no job can teach you. <3 Richard thank you very much for everything<3 LADY FUR LOVES RICHARD SWARTZ
Ryan Hamilos: Kalimera Kalispera Ryan is half greek and half American he loves Gianni Agnelli’s style and Ferrari. He is a big entrepreneur with a creative futuristic vision who is helping me in positioning my blog into the States. Ryan organised all my experience in New York and we are planning to work nearest really soon. I hear from Ryan more than I do from my mother, when I wake up Kalimera and when I go to sleep Kalispera. Ryan I’m sure you are reading my post so I will call you in a minute =) LADY FUR LOVES RYAN
Jamie Falkowski: he is a super smart young entrepreneur he is the founder of themindshareagency. He looks like he’s 28-29 years old even though his age is around 40. I hope he will reveal soon the secret of youth. He is a real genius, talks like a genius super fast because he thinks about 1000 things together. And of course without explain anything he totally understands what I’m doing with my blog. Jamie put me up me in his beautiful home and he treated me like a princess. We lunched at Bergdorf Goodman: it was beautiful. Jamie I love you <3
Joshua Kogan: a super beautiful talented and professional photographer with a lot of patience =). Visiting his web site you will see how many photos he has taken: campaigns, portraits, fashion photos for important brands like Valentino. We have two really strong characters so we argued a little bit during the shooting, droving Ryan crazy, but we also laughed a lot and had a lot of fun. Now we are closer than before. Joshua I love you. Thank you.
Joshua Beeler: he is a really super talented make up artist he literally transformed my face. Thank you Joshua I love you I hope you are reading my blog post I can’t wait to work again with you. What I like about Joshua is that he really cares about the health of my skin. Many makeup artists don’t care about the client’s skin. They just put the foundation and products without thinking if that product will make your skin dirty or irritated. Often I get spots because the foundation is not good for my skin. Joshua uses amazing products, before making me up he prepared my skin with fabulous creams and the last day he gave me a small bag with creams for my face. =)LADYFURLOVESJOSHUA If you want to find joshua follow him on instagram @lovejoshua
Raouf Marzouki: super sweet hair stylist, but he is not only a hair stylist he is an ARTIST. He is super fast and precise, and super PROFESSIONAL. LADYFURLOVESRAOUF
