Count Alexander von Beregshasy...

Count Alexander von Beregshasy...

I’ve had some very sad news today, one of my dear friends passed away.

We first became acquainted through my work when he purchased a Georgian doll from me. Being such a passionate follower of 18th-century France, he knew instantly my inspiration for her came from the movie Dangerous Liasons. More recently, Count Alexander commissioned Sleeping Beauty dressed in a Madam-de-Pompadour costume… and I adored working on this creation for him.

Over the years our working relationship blossomed into one of deep friendship… I feel so very saddened by his passing… I shall miss our conversations for Count Alexander had such a passion for costume, which he expressed through every aspect of his own careful personal appearance. Dressing in early 19th century fashion himself he was every inch a charming gentleman from the ‘Old World’ and a ‘Time Gone By’… I shall miss him and his sweet kind heart…

In memory of Count Alexander von Beregshasy who ascended into the light to dance with the Angels on Sunday 7th February 2010.

Rest in peace my dear friend.

“Your presence we miss
Your memory we treasure,
Loving you always
Forgetting you never.”
