There was Pest fashion in the socialist system, a strange, mysterious grandmother, Klára Rotschild, who could hold a parlor in Paris in the 60s and 70s. There is a mystery today about the reason, and the price for this privilege. He could travel to Paris twice a year, watch the current fashion shows, and memorize the French fashion at home. Klara Rotschild - though not a fashion designer or seamstress, but a tailor - was referred to as the genius of the profession.
