With Paris on the horizon I was perusing my packed itinerary to check out the highlights. I am going to have the immense pleasure of a dinner and reception at the residence of Vincent Frey's Paris Residence. Curiosity took over with the help of the help of Google and I found this FAB article from a chic site, The Socilite Family. It needed to be shared…
CEO of Maison Pierre Frey, Paris 1er arrondissement 4 June 2012

Bianca Lee Vasquez’interview
Bianca, what’s your favorite time of the day ? Early evening when the light is blue outside.
The place in your home where you feel the most comfortable? Upstairs where I paint and make things.
Do you have a favourite colour ? Lately its pink, very strange because as a little girl i disliked pink and even had a blue room.
How do you choose the name of your son ? It was specially delivered to us by sophie, a dear family friend. we needed a name that would be pronounced and written the same way in english, french and spanish since i am cuban-ecuadorian but miami is home and the daddy is french. when we heard the name we knew that was it. it was the only boy name we had in mind.
Your favorite motto? The Golden Rule, present in almost all ancient philosophical schools : One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.
Which designer piece do you dream of having in your home ? The Lady chair by Marco Zanuso was a piece i was dreaming of. one day, i would like a gueridon table by Victoria Wilmotte.
The brand you wear all the time? The label hui-hui, for their creativity and outspoken prints.
Your latest crush ? Angora sweaters
The latest restaurant you would recommend in Paris ? Le Petit Cheval de Manège , 5 rue froment, 11eme and Mishi, 58 rue Saint – Anne. It’s my favorite sushi restaurant in Petit Tokyo area.
Bianca’ favorite places ? School Gallery, a small contemporary art gallery in a tree-shaded courtyard in le Marais. Olivier, the gallerist, has an excellent selection of up-and-coming and established artists in photography, drawing and mixed media. Ask him to visit his “cabinet d’amateurs” upstairs.
