TVN Charity Bal
The 5th edition of TVN Charity Ball “Nie Jesteś Sam” took place last Saturday in Warsaw. This is one of the most important social events of the year and definitely the greatest ball of all. Bożena Walter and Aldona Wejchert - originators of the ball personally supervised the whole organization, taking care of the smallest details so that arriving guests could spend an unforgettable evening. This year, the ball gathered 470 people from the world of business, media, culture and art. Each year, the goal of this special event is to support TVN charity foundation “Nie Jesteś Sam” and so was this time – all the revenue from the auction will be donated to the renovation of the Rehabilitation Clinic which belongs to the Institute of Matka Polka in Lodz. The outcome of the auction was fantastic – collected over 1 million of Polish zlotych. One could bid for example a t-shirt donated by Robert Lewandowski (sold for 50 000). I have won a bid for a dinner to which I will invite my closest friends. All the meals will be prepared by one of the best chefs in Poland – Michel Moran. TVN Charity Ball is a parade of stunning gowns, which celebrities procure from the designers months before the event. Few celebrities wore custom –made La Mania pieces for that special occassion. The party and dances lasted until dawn. It was a remarkable, full of positive energy memorable evening.

Shanghai-Express
Charlotte Olympia Dellal is fascinated with the era of the Hollywood glamour and Pin-Up, which  she perfectly reflects in her designs of shoes and accessories by combining feminine retro charm and classic sophistication with a good dose of humour.
Her latest collection Shanghai-Express is a picturesque journey to China. Modern and full of humour designs are inspired by the ancient Chinese dynasties from Shanghai glamour of the 30’s and 40’s. Dragons, tigers, lotus flowers, Ming porcelain, lamps, fans, and even Chinese food box took the original form of bags and shoes. Handbags resemble Chinese red lanterns or colorful Chinese masks, as well as finished with lacquer small trunks. Adorable panda face adorns the famous ballerinas, there are pumps resembling porcelain and phenomenal wedges made of black lacquer and decorated with floral motifs and Chinese characteristic nodes. Pieces in this collection are beautifully crafted  and made off the highest quality materials, finished with great attention to detail. It’s brilliant and humorous tribute to the great Chinese culture and its symbols.
