A couple of years ago at a Mardi Gras ball, I placed my fur shawl on the back of my chair. All while the party commenced, a gentleman next to me dropped his crown royal onto my shawl. At first I thought nothing of it, its fur right? WRONG. The sugar ate part of my lining; I was devastated. I knew of only one person that could repair my mink shawl--Raffaele. He did a fabulous job! So note to ladies: use coat check for your fur coats!
