From the court of Louie the 16th
Unheard of at the time, the young noble-woman took up scissor and thread, and under the tutorage of Marie Antoinette's modist Mlls. Rose Bertin, created garments of elegance and grace from bolts of the finest silks and lace to be found through-out Europe. The simplicity and lines of her designs quickly caught the eye of Silkwood Delanney, who became a regular patron.
When the King and Queen were jailed in the late 1780's and the nobility were being guilotined, Silkwood quickly took charge of the young woman, offering her the dark gift of immortality, and fled France for the newly independent states of the Americas, and New York.
Shalimar did not hesitate, and her reward was to rebuild and run the vast Fashion empire belonging to the Ventrue in the grand city of Amar'Anthin . Renaming the fashion house .... Shalimar's .... she worked day and night, often modeling the creations of the House of Shalimar. She soon prospered, claiming among her elite clientelle, the Tari of A'Man, Tessa Vara Taure, with whom Shalimar struck a fast friendship.
They shared not only a love of fashion, decorum and elegance, but also a love of the water, and were often seen sailing the Bay of Dreams or bathing in the sparkling waterfalls of A'Man.
