And an inspiration from the past that I just love:
"Fall 2007 draws inspiration from Paris in the early 1900s 
with the arrival of Russian nobility, artists and their muses. 
Parisian society was enraptured with 
the vivid and exotic scenes played out before them 
by Diaghilev's Ballets Russes." 
-- Alice Temperly
