Natasha Slater; have their palms and cards read; indulge in the atmosphere of an old-school beauty salon while having their eyebrows thread; have a total make-over in the vanity room; and experience the Spring/Summer 2011 collection while sipping on the most refreshing prosecco served fifties-skate style. Eh! Stefano, Domenico...that's what friends are for. XO, T
