The Antique Wine Company: Global Fine Wine Experts

The Antique Wine Company is a noted merchant of fine wines and spirits. The London, United Kingdom-based company began operations in the 1980s, when it was founded by former banker Stephen Williams. Williams has been the company CEO since its inception. The Antique Wine Company has a highly global presence. Although the merchant’s head office is in Marylebone, London, it has a pair of branches located in Asia, too.

The merchant name suggests a love of antique fine wines. The people behind The Antique Wine Company are indeed antique wine enthusiasts. Despite that, most of the wines they trade are contemporary. The idea behind the company is to trade high-quality wines and spirits that will likely someday be vintages in their own right.

The team at The Antique Wine Company is acknowledged around the world for their expertise in fine wines. This is why the merchant’s services and available fine wines are coveted by many. They regularly offer their fine wine expertise to the professionals who run wine cellars in private homes, chateaux, luxury hotels and restaurants. People and businesses regularly turn to The Antique Wine Company for their assistance in wine cellar operations, wine cellar design and safe wine storage.

The merchant doesn’t exclusively trade wines and spirits that come from one specific part of the world. Their offered wines originate in many countries and regions across the planet. The company’s very own wine cellars house more than 10,000 respected antique wines. The Antique Wine Company sells wines, Armagnac and spirits that were made in regions all across France (the Loire Valley, Provence, Bordeaux, etc.), Spain, Germany and Italy. Their offered products don’t just come from European soils, either. The merchant trades American, New Zealand, Argentinian and Australian fine wines, too. The merchant’s customer base is just as diverse and scattered as the nations that produce their fine wines. Their clients (approximately 20,000 plus total) reside in 70 nations around the world.

Fine wine education is a prominent aspect of The Antique Wine Company, too. The company created the AWC Wine Academy in 2011. People who are searching for master classes in wine often rely on the pros involved in the Wine Academy. These master classes are generally run by acclaimed Masters of Wine and winemakers. The AWC Wine Academy conducts its business out of the merchant’s London base. The academy is equipped with modern visual and audio systems.

First Person Downs Syndrome Walks NYC Runway

As we all know beauty comes in many forms, and one woman in Los Angeles as further proved that. Actress Jamie Brewer, who is known for her roles on several American Horror Story seasons, will be the first model ever in history to have Down Syndrome and walk down a runway in New York during its famous fashion week.

Brewer got her start in the acting world by being one of the main characters in the first season of American Horror Story, and then she came back for the third and fourth season as well. Lee Slaughter (Xrossfire.com) is glad to learn that she likes to be an inspiration to people who have disabilities and feels that she is setting a good example for them. According to an article found on reddit and written by CNN, Brewer made a statement about showing others with similar disabilities that if she can do it, so can they.

Jamie Brewer is making new ground in not only the acting world but in the overall community as well. It is important that people don’t assume that those with a handicap such as Downs Syndrome can’t live a more or less normal life, because there are many of them out there who have jobs, families, and now a spot in Hollywood. Brewer is a true pioneer for the fashion and acting world, and it will be good to see what she comes up with next over the following years.

Miss Universe National Costumes Rundown: The Sensational, the Shimmering, and the Silly

The fashion world is buzzing over 2015’s Miss Universe National Costume section, which debuted January 21st. Unlike the more subdued rest of the pageant, the National Costume part is all about going wild and showing off the best your country has to offer. Eighty-eight crazy costumes is nothing to sneeze at.

Bird costumes were popular as ever, with spangled headdresses, wings and tails that completely dominated the space. Argentina rocked a silvery-white bird costume, Belgium wore striking black, yellow and red (as per the flag) and Turks & Caicos’ opalescent wings made her look like a shimmering hummingbird.

Great Britain took a page out of 2014’s Canadian Mountie costume with a sexy mini-dress styled after the Queen’s Guard uniform. Canada this time went in a fun and silly direction with a hockey-inspired dress, goal, scoreboard and hockey sticks included.

Croatia once again arrived in a rather low-key cocktail dress. She, Austria and Poland looked rather under-dressed for this event – someone told them what part of the pageant this was, right?

Trinidad & Tobago took the same asymmetrical theme as last year and kicked it up a notch. Netherlands paid homage to historical painter Van Gogh with a dress featuring Starry Night and his famous sunflowers. Other historical nods included Spain’s queenly regalia, Japan’s samurai armor, Germany’s Berlin Wall, Greece’s ancient toga and Dominican Republic’s Virgin Mary dress and shawl – with a Madonna printed on the front just in case the reference wasn’t obvious enough.

Puerto Rico, one of the places Lee G. Lovett visited on his recent trip, wore an entirely white layered gown with each layer of lace carefully cut out like snowflakes, accessorized with a paper fan and beaded hair piece. Singapore came backed by the moon and stars. And Slovenia, alas, looked like a dirty Swiffer duster. Who green-lit that dress?

The US seemed to be made of breaking waves, but the blue-white feathers were broken by a red striped bathing suit. Well, at least she wasn’t a Transformer robot like last year.

Pint-Sized Designer To Launch J.Crew 2015 Spring Tykes Collection

 

Her name is Mayhem and at the wee age of four, this little prodigy is designing clothes for J.Crew’s children’s line, Crewcuts Kids. Already showing business promise, says my friend Zeca Oliveira. But Yes, it’s true, and the adorable, pint-sized child will debut her collection in spring 2015.

It sounds unbelievable, but Mayhem has always been a creative youngster, making amazing, paper dresses with a lot of thought and imagination. Her mom even established an Instagram account on Mayhem’s behalf, and from that point on, fashion people took notice.

Jenny Cooper, Head of Crewcuts Design, explained to HuffingtonPost.com that Mayhem is as talented as she is made out to be:

“When we met with Mayhem for the first time we were really curious to see how she would work and were amazed to watch this barely 4-year-old girl start meticulously folding the pleats on a skirt and placing stones very specifically and carefully on a top she had just fashioned around herself. She has such an inventive and creative personality that really resonated with us. It was great to have a truly creative child be at the heart of the design process. ”

The tiny, fashion prodigy still behaves like a typical 4-year-old, as Mayhem loves to ride her bike when she isn’t designing clothing. She also has specific ideas on what belongs in every tyke’s closet:

“A shirt and a dress and pants. And they should all be white and blue.”

Simply adorable!
