#do what you love # love what you do and what inspired my family.

In 1945 after the liberation of Paris a man named Yajello played cards in a cafe, he won a truckload of parachutes.
Silk was hard to find and Yajello cut the silk parachutes and transformed the silk parachutes into hand painted scarves. My grandmother Rachel Giovanelli, who had a fashion shop in Paris, bought some from him.
This is what inspired my mother Béatrice Pochat when she lost her job as a social worker. She started off in an old Montreal lane in 1978 and finally had the only scarves shop in Canada at the time located on Saint-Paul Street.
In the 1980s the whole family worked to sell or paint Scarves, we participated in trade shows of arts and craft other fashion events in addition to having a business In old Montreal until 1993.
For some years now I have been thinking back to the time when I got up happy to go to work to paint scarves. After ten years of taking care of my parents before they passed away, I decided to attend Concordia University in Studio Arts, to take up painting scarves which I love so much and to practice a profession that I am passionate about.
I am pleased to announce that this week I was welcomed into the Conseil des Métiers d'art du Québec. This will help Caméléon grow its wings.

For mother's day I found out the booth where my mother sold her first scarves in old Montreal was for rent, so i rented it from May 13th until October 10th.
