Handbag Mademe Ingrid, Bohemian Insanity
“I’m Madame Ingrid, born in the limelight!It was the 1970s and I was at the top of my career. I could list a long list of big stars who have started their careers under the gentle gaze of a signatory. I was once a curtain. And no ordinary window curtain, but rather a curtain. So in a very important position. My place was a small dance restaurant where the hottest orchestras in town played. The young men in their shoulder-length curls, high-heeled shoes, and trumpet legs tuned their playing bands to a small stage and I made sure they were allowed to focus on their work in peace.I would certainly still be in curtain duties, perhaps even in larger arenas, but an accident at work one winter evening cut off my brilliant career. The soloist of a vocal and instrumental band had enjoyed too many refreshments and faltered in the middle of the performance. Of course, I was there when my help was needed and bravely fluttered to cushion the collision between the soloist’s forehead and the floor. He survived the bruise, I tore my entire top length into two parts. My career ended there. My injuries were too serious. But look at me now! "
