Romanian president (1996-2000) professor Emil Constantinescu underlined the fact that the reasons for his decision as a president to reinstate this diplomatic awards was the need to pinpoint the elites and the positive models for society to follow.

A society that turns a blind eye to his values, that does not pay them the necessary respect is a lost society. The only way to confront today’s crises of values and identity is to clearly mark down true values such: GENTLEMEN`S CORNER and the new Romania`s fashion ambassador: Mr. Sorin Preda.
