    Hey,

    There was a topic about this a long time ago, but i can't find it through search. I tried google'ing this too and came up with nothing.

    I'm looking for the name of a store that was started by a successful and wealthy businessman. It provides super high end luxury goods at extremely expensive prices. It even has high end clothes manufacturers make special clothes for that store. Aka T&A for ____ (don't remember what brands actually did this for that store). It was so luxury that it was open by invitation only. As well, the store's owner would use his private jet to fly collections to where-ever you were. .. so that you could try it on. Their store was based in LA. I think it was on rodeo drive.

    I believe it was called Bjon or Bjorn or something along those lines.

    Hopefully someone will recognize the store and tell me the name / provide a link to any information about it.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Derek

    Reading the "$19,000 Bijan-designed ostrich vest" line in the article reminds me of the Simpson's song when Mr. Burns is singing (sung to "Be Our Guest" from Beauty and the Beast): Burns: Some men hunt for sport, Others hunt for food, The only thing I'm hunting for, Is an outfit that looks good... See my vest, see my vest, Made from real gorilla chest, Feel this sweater, there's no better, Than authentic Irish setter. See this hat, 'twas my cat, My evening wear - vampire bat, These white slippers are albino African endangered rhino. Grizzly bear underwear, Turtles' necks, I've got my share, Beret of poodle, on my noodle It shall rest, Try my red robin suit, It comes one breast or two, See my vest, see my vest, See my vest. Like my loafers? Former gophers - It was that or skin my chauffeurs, But a greyhound fur tuxedo Would be best, So let's prepare these dogs, Mrs. Potts: Kill two for matching clogs, Burns: See my vest, see my vest, Oh please, won't you see my vest.

    It would seem a Botero portrait would be unflattering. Especially to someone already of an ample girth. Or slim girth for that matter.

    But then he did use that model, Bella for his ads so I suppose it is jusitifed.

    Interesting... Bijan didn't make any mention of Mittal in his client list. What's going on Kalra?
