Filippo: You did a great job Giovanna, this idea of using old Edith Head models for Tecla's wardrobe was a stroke of genius
Giovanna: Thank you Filippo, I hope she likes them. The hardest part was adding the leopard accents to each of them. That was boring!
Filippo: You know, the leopard accent is her trademark. The used to own one in the old days. Oh yes, Virginia, the fitting is good, nice job.
Virginia: Oooh, thank you Mr. Filippo!
Giovanna: I won't come with you, I think Virginia shall present the models to her. Because of Enrico, you know.
Filippo: Madame Tecla? Your wardrobe is ready, if you wish you can come to the atelier and have a look at the models.
Tecla: Well Filippo, I don't really feel like coming to the atelier. You can bring everything up at my mansion so I shall see it at my convenience.
Filippo: Naturally Madame, how silly of me. We will be there in the afternoon.
Tecla: Very good, Filippo.
Tecla: Max! The wardrobe is ready, finally. They will be here today.
Max: I'll supervise the defille, Madame. Everything as you wish.
Filippo: Madame, let me introduce you to Virginia. She's our designer. She will introduce you each piece of the collection she designed for you.
Virginia: Good afternoon Madame, the clothes shall be modeled by our models: Greta, Veronica, Vittoria and Camilla
Tecla: They are a bit fat, aren't they? It doesn't matter, let's go ahead. I've been waiting for this collection long enough.
Virginia: As you indicated, I designed dresses in marroon and black, with cheetaa accents. Each dress has been named after the defining moments of your carreer. The first dress is called "how to divorce a millionaire"
Tecla: I like this one.
Virginia: Thank you Madame. The second dress is called: Untamed
Virginia: And this one is "Indiscreet"
Tecla: I like the coat, the line of the dress is interesting, too.
Virginia: Something classic and something new, Madam. As you requested. And now the Dressing Gown. "Beyond Breakfast"
Tecla: Perfect. Filippo you outdid yourself.
Filippo: Thank you Madame. You're very generous
Filippo and Virginia are going to give the good news to a nervous Giovanna, their ordeal is over (for the time being!)
I'm curious about which is your favourite dress, I'm willing to make some more late 40's early 50's dresses, those Edith Head sketches are beautiful and Costanza wants a wardrobe of her own too!
