Anna-Sophia van Zweden is a jet setter, art and culture expert, fashion lover, and philanthropist. Not to mention daughter of Dallas Symphony Orchestra musical director Jaap van Zweden. (She’s even the honorary chair for this weekend’s Dallas Symphony Orchestra AT&T Gala After-Party.) We knew she’d have interesting things in her bag, and we were right. Take a look.
