An Homage to Haute Couture SS13 with Sara Moschini

by Tamu McPherson
Hello Pretty Birds,
So excited to bring you another installment of Tamu’s Cafe. This time Stefano (Ste), Riccardo (Ricky) and I prepare a Haute Couture SS13-inspired dinner with special guest Sara Moschini, Fashion Editor at As you’ll see in the video, Sara is an amazing illustrator. So when Ste, Ricky and I talked about inviting her to the “cafe,” we decided that we absolutely had to feature her illustrations in some way. The idea to dedicate this episode to the Haute Couture collections came to mind at work as Sara and I were preparing our coverage of the shows. One of our absolute favorite things to do after reviewing the couture shows is to discuss at length (preferably while nibbling on something sweet) the beauty of the collections. It’s always a super dreamy conversation, complete with goosebumps and misty eyes. But how could we incorporate Sara’s illustrations into a Haute Couture- themed dinner? And what dishes would we prepare? And the flowers? Curious to find out??? Please enjoy the video.
