Kari Lonning, Basketmaker

Proud to say she is my friend, blogger, twitterer, and basket maker extrodinare, Kari Lonning has a booth near me this weekend at The Westchester Craft Show in White Plains NY.

Known worldwide for her subtly coloured double wall construction baskets, they are truly collectors pieces.

The Westchester Craft Show

The show is all set up and looks fabulous, across the board. The nor'easter expected didn't amount to much so traveling won't be a problem.

The Westchester Craft Show

Fall is in the air, and it is a perfect time to shop our shearling collection. We will be at a fabulous show this weekend, friday thru sunday, at the White Plains County Center. At The Westchester Craft Show, you will also see the best talent in the country in a wide range of media and creativity.

This show is New York metro area's finest show of this kind , and VERY accessible from New York City. From Grand Central Station, take Metro North to White Plains. The 15 minute walk to the County Center makes you feel like you are having a day in the country, even in busy White Plains! Or take a short cab ride, always waiting at the station, if you are not up to the walk.

Across the street from the County Center is The City Limits Diner. Their excellent and varied menu is always a treat, and Andre Leon Talley is spotted there often, and we know he has good taste!

Hope to see you there

New York is a Stage

On September 10th New York solidified it's very own holiday. Fashion, creativity, partying, competing to be the best, the most innovative. While we certainly did not see even a tenth of what was going on that night, of what we did see I have to give my prize to the windows of Bergdorf Goodman, each one hosting a different performer, a vignette, an imagination......Top honors to Joey Arias and the Dream Music Orchestra.

Joey sang all the old classics, and really captivated the audience and we were all waiting on line to get into the store. After Joey, I guess karaoke with the Olsen twins would have been ok, but we decided to move on.

and the dream music orchestra (marionettes), you just couldn't believe you were here
and you absolutely couldn't take your eyes off them.

Another window had a hair stylist............

and one with a Motown thing going on........................

these chicks just kept spinning more hair, very Baroque

this guy kept pouring hot wax (Biba was mesmerized by this one!)

These two girls were hanging out in the same window. The blonde periodically tattooed the outfit, the little one was handling the dummies

Well this is my last post on Fashion's Night Out, which is almost a month ago already.
We did head back downtown after this, and around midnight finally got some food.

More Fun Uptown!

After the party at The Four Seasons we wound up at Chanel where THE Karl Lagerfeld was holding court upstairs and making his way thru a crowd of fans, probably to another event.
(Just for fun, also check out the animation on his own website, scroll over it!)

It was at Chanel that I first saw Marcello Martinez, all decked out. I didn't actually meet him until a week later when we both happened to be in Central Park watching Madonna directing her next film, W.E.

By now we had been out for a while and were starving, so when we peeked into Louis Vuitton and saw all the waiters we immediately thought FOOD!, but they broke into a
chorus line performance, serving up handbags.
Always the unexpected on FNO!

My next post will be devoted to the best performance of the evening in my opinion. The windows at Bergdorfs.
