Her sense of taste and style won many accolades, especially from friends who eventually became her clients. After many years on the International Best Dressed list, she embarked on a career in textile design. She arrived in the United States in 1980 with her husband and four daughters. Her friend, Diana Vreeland, former editor of Vogue magazine, convinced her to design dresses rather than fabrics.
