As you may remember, The Madame Paulette Touring Division was commissioned to the Mar-a-Lago Estate in Palm Beach, Florida by Melania Trump to insure that the utmost personalized attention was given to both the bride and her $200,000 Christian Dior Couture wedding gown. During her lavish $5,000,000 wedding to billionaire Donald Trump, Madame Paulette was in charge of every aspect of her highly publicized and celebrated wedding gown. Madame Paulette’s Touring division is also commissioned on a regular basis – as recently as Fall of 2006 – by Mr. Trump himself to clean and maintain the textiles aboard his Boeing 727 private jet. His customized gold silk upholstered furniture requires special care and is consistently restored to its original splendor by Madame Paulette’s team of skilled artisans.
