Colette returned to New York City as her permanent home in the early nineties. Her new persona, The House Of Olympia, was inspired by the 18th cent and lasted a decade. After the attacks on New York on September 11, 2001, Colette changed her name one more time, this time using the French word for light, “lumiere,” as her last name, and Colette Lumiere to this day continues to bring light to the world through her personal, intimate vision of life and all it means to be alive, to be creative, and to live every day with passion and truth to oneself.
