Fashion Night out At The Brooklyn Museum of Art


I haven't a clue what to do... with my hair! Oh my!!!
So I keep cutting it. It's fun! And quite sexy looking... for now. The temptation to grow is always there... But now, Chop Chop Chop... and why not right before a big event. All with my own two hands!

American High Style: Fashioning a National Collection

Yes, Last thursday, I was invited to attend The Brooklym Museum who has partnered with the Metropolitan Museum of Art to present a major fashion exhibit showcasing 85 costumes, many of which haven't been on display in 20 years. An amazing collection, with pieces from Dior, Divecy, Elsa Scapareli the surrealist and Charles James, a cult figure of american design. Many of these costumes were worn by very special people, including, Queen Victoria.

Exhibit dates: May 7–August 1, 2010

In this exhibition, artist Kiki Smith's installation explores creative inspiration and the cycle of life in relation to women artists. From the milestones of birth and death to experiences such as the daily chores of domestic life. Beautiful, striking, and thoughtful. I would love to have one of her drawings hanging on my wall.
