Maati sells very stylish tops and clutches hand painted by talented Indian artisans (it takes 8-11 hours to paint 1 piece).

Director of Macao legendary Josef von Sternberg made Jane’s natural beauty and sex appeal even more vivid. Von Sternberg (he’s the one, who lit the star of Marlene Dietrich) had a rare nowadays quality – he could turn almost each and every actress into the mesmerizing and mysterious screen goddess.
