Most of my expertise in Visible arts, design and scenography is coming from collaborating with worldwide magnificence manufacturers in Asia equivalent to Giorgio Armani, Shu Uemura, Helena Rubinstein, Elizabeth Arden.

The world of magnificence introduced me to Asia 20 years in the past as a global architect.
