What is Club Modeler?

Modeler is a French verb and means to model, mould with hands, to shape with hands, to mould or to model oneself on.

It was in the spirit of bursting from art and soul and Nona’s quintessential travels that Club Modeler was born. Club Modeler sees the world with fashion and aesthetics in mind. Nona’s idée fixe on retro Côte d’Azur and her passion for the Cinecittà era and 60s French cinema bestow her concept.

All those who follow their desire to be unique and experience the most exquisite places or hidden gems around the world can enjoy Club Modeler. Everyone is welcome to benefit from my blog and my suggestions. In the near future, my intention is to model curated unique travel experiences (CUTE) for my VIP Club Members.
