Damsels in Distress centers on a group of college girls who take in a new student and teach her their own misguided ways of helping people. Lily, a new student at Seven Oaks University, winds up filling in with a dynamic and highly individualistic group of girls, addicted to the elegance of the past: Heather, Violet and Rose all volunteer at the campus Suicide Prevention Center, convinced that musical dance, sharp clothes and good hygiene — the Dior perfume “Diorissimo” is their trademark — can all contribute to staving off the inevitable self-destructive impulses that follow hard on the heels of failed college romances. Despite their sophisticated talk and savvy use of perfume, the girls are plagued by Cupid’s arrows and must adjust their psyches to the onset of amour.

When I interviewed for the position as Delman's Design Director, I was given the chance to see the Delman archive at our offices. The beauty, richness and variety of the museum-quality Delman models stored there sealed the deal for me, in terms of reinforcing the rich 90-year legacy of the Delman brand, and instilling within me the feeling that, given the opportunity, I could contribute a great deal towards bringing the brand to its full potential!!
