Default Re: Our Queen Grace interview


As Emily mentioned earlier in this thread, one of the things that distinguishes the Queen Grace collection is Madame Zelner's opulent taste--her taste in models and her taste in fashion. Taste is a quintessentially aristocratic quality. One can hardly learn taste; one simply has it or one does not. One must be born with it, just as one must be born to the purple.

Allow us to exhibit another manifestation of this exquisite taste: the sophistication of the Queen Grace promotional materials.

When we received our copy of the Queen Grace catalogue, it came in an elegant white folder emblazoned with the line's distinctive coronet-embellished crest.

Inside was a letter from Queen Grace, thanking us for our patronage. It was similarly decorated with the line's attractive logo and folded over in a classic z-fold. This scan shows the elegant silver trim.

The catalogue itself is conveniently spiral bound and shows the royal purple hue, very similar to the colour that the Judgment of Paris has always used for viewed-links text. The eleven looks inside this catalogue are all viewable as full-size scans by clicking on the thumbnail images on our interview page, linked above.

Another 811 page with the Queen Grace logo and sophisticated silver edging features the text of a press release from just prior to Full-Figured Fashion Week. Please click on this image to view it at a larger, readable size.

Finally, a glossy page describes the collection, offers a company overview, and notes Madame Zelner's personal background--which is quite compelling. Everyone who has enjoyed discovering Marina's opinions, as relayed in our interview, will find her biography quite fascinating and inspiring.

Once again, we wish to thank Madame Zelner for engaging with us in such a candid and enlightening interview, and for providing us with such attractive visual material to support the presentation of this intriguing text.
