Jenny Holzer

Dizzying imagery left me feeling rejuvinated friday night on Madison Avenue. First at the Jenny Holzer exhibit at the Whitney, her biggest show in more than 15 years. Always gives me a lot to think about and get lost in. The technology alone was amazing and mesmerizing. The museum (yes, on the free nite) was amazingly empty.

As was Madison Avenue, as I strolled down a subway stop or two before I hopped on the train, to take in the sites. These amazing boots in the window at Yves St Laurent, coupled with a window pane display AND of corse window panes on the windows, were something to capture.

See what I mean?

My friend Natasha, aka Studio Jeweler, referenced Ornamentum Gallery,
and I found this piece by Ted Noten of the Netherlands, called Superbitch Bag Lady.
More aggressive (art) (fashion). But very cute!
Fit for the times!

Leather to get you thru the Tough Times

The New York Times has been reporting on some aggressive styles recently, here a leather bodysuit from YVES SAINT LAURENT, from 

And PRADA models below, from "A Strong Woman for Hard Times"
After 9/11 my customers wanted soft, wanted color, wanted comfort.
Now is a more go get it, (I may have a gun in my purse!) kind of feel

Some music I love

When you see talent and beauty like this, you have got to pay attention!
I had seen Esperanza Spalding on Tavis Smiley. The next night she played at the White House to honor Stevie Wonder who received the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.
24 years old! We will definitely be listening to her in the studio.
(You can watch the whole show at here)

photographing black

As a designer, and as a New Yorker, I love black. Some of our best work is all black, in my opinion, but as far as photographing it, it is difficult to catch the detail, and to get a photo that will catch the jurors attention when applying to shows. It seems that going thru thousands of images on screen, a blast of color has a better shot.
But in the booth, in real life, and wearing it, it can look terrific.....like this black suede shearling cinched jacket, trimmed in lambskin....the shine of the leather against the richness of the suede is very appealing to me.
