Out and About

Australians and Georgians are United!
An Australian-Georgian Party. Sounds weird! Neverthless, this is what happened one frosty day at the Cara&Co Boutique at Vinzavod.

The story of how this party came about is pure Moscow. The owners of Cara&Co (an Australian brand) concept-store, had planned to celebrate opening a new line of clothes. Their neighbors at Vinzavod, the Georgian Pobeda gallery and owner Nina Gomiashvili, was about to present a new cookery book. So they decided to join forces and put on a presentation in a congenial atmosphere, with sparkling champagne. Georgians and Australians seem to have much in common.

“The reason why we did this together is easy to understand,” said Rosa Kamenev, owner and co-creator of Cara&Co. “My shop is Australian and I’m Australian. We presented a Georgian cookery book. That’s why we had a mixed party of both countries. It was a brilliant idea, I think.”

Not only Georgians and Australians were at the meeting. There were also many Russian celebrities. Rosa Camenev’s multitudes of friends in many Moscow embassies all came too. The multicultural evening was backed by the Modern Blues Band. Food consisted of special Georgian snacks and dishes.
