It’s been 15 years since the first news of the world came through a phone call from Emmanuelle, a young woman who’d just turned 19.
The young woman had lost her home to the Grenfell Tower fire.
She was lucky to have lived through the blaze, but she had been devastated to find herself on the streets with no home to go back to.
So she started her own business, selling used, refurbished and worn-down furniture, and started to make her way up to a much higher level.
It was then that she met a young man who had been the subject of the same tragedy, who she fell in love with and was living in London.
The pair fell in a love for each other and their friendship was quickly built up, and they soon had children together.
After that, the young man, Emmanuelle was able to secure her job and get back on her feet.
But she had a lot of work to do, and with no real support she struggled to make ends meet.
But Emmanuelle kept her heart on her sleeve, and even made it through the worst of times.
And today, she has a beautiful new piece of furniture she has been working on.
It’s called the wrought iron dressers.
And it’s the inspiration behind her new show,The Wrought Iron: A Journey into the World of Wrought-Iron, Wrought Lamps and The Wrought Machine, which is now available on Amazon.
The show is a look at the world of used and refurbished goods and how they change over time.
In this episode, we’re taking a look back at the journey of the old wrought iron dresses, as they have aged in the house of a family in the 1980s.
And we’re talking to Emmanuelle about the history of the dresser and how it’s been worn by generations of people.
As we explore the history and story behind these old, but elegant, dresses, Emmanuelne will tell us about the importance of knowing where you got it from, and how you can help your neighbours and the planet by donating old, used and damaged items.
The Woven Iron: The Story of a Life of LoveAnd here is an interview that Emmanuelle gave to The New York Times in January 2018 about how she became the owner of the antique wrought iron items.
