Back in 2008, photographer Stephanie Rausser took her daughter Kiki on a trip to Paris. The little girl, of course, wouldn’t have dreamt of embarking on this foreigh adventure without her MAPT (meilleure amie pour toujours), her Jess Brown rag-doll Coco. Since Stephanie is a photographer, she took a series of sweet pictures of Kiki and Coco as they “delight in the city of light,” eating at café, riding old fashioned carrousels, taking the metro, visiting the Pompidou Center, strolling the Champs Elysees and climbing to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Now the playful photographic journey has become a book, Kiki and Coco in Paris, which will be launched exclusively at M29 Lifestyle this Saturday, October 8th between 12-4PM.
The Georgetown boutique will welcome doll-maker and designer Jess Brown for an exclusive and chic Mommy and Me Parisian-themed play date, complete with mini-macarons from Paul and a trunk show of poupées de chiffon. A junior sized movie theater will also be set up for the little guests, their mamans and their dolls to screen the video version of Coco and Kiki’s voyage.
