Handbag Mademe Ingrid
“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 the undersigned. I used to be 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 curled-up curls, high-heeled shoes, and trumpet legs, tuned their bands on a small stage and I made sure they were able to concentrate on their work in peace. I would certainly still be in curtain assignments, perhaps even in larger arenas, but an accident at work one winter evening cut off my brilliant career.
The soloist of a singing and playing 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 soften the collision between the soloist’s forehead and the floor. He survived the bruising, I tore my entire top length into two parts. My career ended there. My injuries were too serious. But look at me now! "
