Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

(Berthold Auerbach)

I was born in Shanghai into a family of musicians and moved to Paris in my early years. My mother, a professional pianist, always wanted me to have a career as a concert pianist, and I practised religiously for many years. When I left school, however, circumstances led me to enter the fashion business.

Nevertheless, after all those years of practising piano and going to concerts, my passion for classical music is undiminished.

Welcome to Interlude, created by lovers of music for those who share their passion. I hope it inspires you to embark on your own voyage of musical and cultural discovery, and that you’ll come back and share your experiences with us.
