Welcome to the ball!… Oh yes, and we probably should start with “bippity-boppity-boo“… oh yes, of course. It’s like all the most enchanting fairy tale starts… so… one more time…

Put them together and what have you got?..
You’ve got the most amazing story, and the show during this Paris Fashion Week – the show of Thom Browne. He presented the modern time Cinderella at the ball. We had it all – the show, the pink Cadillac, even all Cinderellas were numbered like a baseball team at the ball where we were all invited.
And you can count on…. Yes, you can count: Cinderella number 1, Cinderella number 2, Cinderella number 3…. 23 Cinderellas paraded at Thom Browne show.
Cinderella number 1 took the ball very seriously… YES, and here’s a great catch, she is a great catch, Prince watch out for this ball! Now Cinderella number 5 passed the ball to Cinderella number 3, and here we go again. This ball is indeed catching!
… Come with us …
