We have many, many different craftsmanship involved. Its not one craftsman making the whole thing. But we try to take the best talents to make the jewelry. Somebody will cut the diamond. Somebody will set the diamond. Somebody will work the metal. Somebody will polish it. Somebody will shine it. Each time it is our challenge to get the best stone setter, the best polisher, make a team and make them work on a piece together. We are very lucky in Paris for historic reasons we have the best craftsmen in the world whose skills have been passed from one generation to another.

I missed my country so it was a nice break. When I came back to the US, I saw all the estate sales and I knew the time was right to open a vintage designer boutique in the US. What are some of the hot vintage styles you’re featuring right now? I carefully pick amazing clothing and handbags that you can never replace, and all are in amazing condition, fresh, artistic and individualistic. There is only one at the boutique and you and only you will have it (if you buy it). How exciting is that? Plus the price is so much more reasonable than any item you’ll buy in a mainstream department store, for the same quality. Some of the “hot” styles I’m featuring are vintage cloche hats, party dresses, gorgeous sweaters, and stunning Louboutins. I also have a coveted Fendi, Chanel and Louis Vuitton collection that women from Manhattan travel to see me.

The first three races were a bit of a damp squib as all were decided by problems with the boats and wind limits. But it was plain sailing in four and five. Both races started as scheduled and both crews completed the course without incident. The Kiwis, however, were the ones to make better use of the 12 to 17 knot winds on San Francisco Bay. Skipper Dean Barker and his crew now lead the best-of-13 final 4-1 and could wrap up the series as soon as Sunday. Emirates Team New Zealand won the previous Louis Vuitton Cup in 2007 against Luna Rossa in a 5-0 sweep. Although a clean sweep is off the cards this time around the Kiwis need just three more victories to book their ticket to compete against defending champions Oracle Team USA in the 34th edition of the Americas Cup next month. Race six takes place on Friday.

Emirates Team New Zealand Sails Away With Louis Vuitton Cup Thanks To ANSYS Solutions

As the two boats cleared the bottom gate to start the upwind leg, that gap was 1a31′. Ray Daviesa tactics were called into play as the Kiwis favoured the City Front shore, where there was less adverse tidal stream. ‘Weare getting into more and more breeze all the time,’ declared Barker. It was not a day, however, to experiment with foiling upwind but still ETNZ demonstrated superiority, stretching its lead to more than 800 metres. After rounding the windward mark with a lead of 2a58′, Barker could have relaxed but showed no sign of relenting in the search for speed as the time limit for the race was also a challenge.
