The Icon…The Legend…Marilyn Monroe

marilynMonroeI was honored by my company to work in the Las Vegas showroom during Summer/ Fall Furniture Market 2015. Las Vegas host this wonderful inspiring Market twice a year, January and August.  The hotel that I was staying at was SLS Hotel, it is brand new on the Las Vegas strip, which the original SLS Hotel is located in Beverly Hills California. It did feel like I was staying in LA but I was in Vegas. One of the iconic photos right when you walk into the hotel just before heading to the check in desk is a photo of the Iconic Marilyn Monroe, see above without the quote. I did post this on my Instagram not knowing that August 5th was the anniversary of her death. Born on June 1st,1926 and died on August 5th, 1962. Just turned 36 years old. But what a legend and legacy she has left. Movies, fashion, inspiration, clothing and even hair style she as left for us to recreate and just to that she died with class never allowing generations forget who she is. Even in todays world many Fashion Designers find her style her image inspiration to create a collection.
