My alma mater, The Savannah College of Art and Design, had their Museum of Art opening last week and I thought I would post pics from one of my favorite exhibits from the opening. The “High Style” exhibit opened in Savannah, Georgia on October 27, 2011 and was the inaugural exhibition in The André Leon Talley Gallery. The Opening featured pieces from designers such as Zac Posen, Vera Wang, Christian Dior, Manolo Blahnik, and Chanel just to name a few and were curated by André Leon Talley himself. I plan on making a trip to Savannah to view the other galleries and explore the beautiful museum in a few weeks and I'm totally geeked about it...lol. The SCAD Museum of Art also feature galleries of works by Bill Viola and Kehinde Wiley so if you're in the area stop by and check those out!!
The “High Style” is on view until February 26, 2012, at SCAD Museum of Art
On Saturday October 22, 2011, Wanda Grace promoted their fall 2011 line during a walking fashion show on the streets of Chicago. Dressed in pieces from the current collection, models graced the streets with picket styled signs promoting the newly launched Style Borrow and WandaGrace.com. The promo took place during Fashion Focus Week in Chicago. The Wanda Grace team even walked their promo through an open to the public shopping event presented by Fashion Focus Chicago, where the crowd was stunned and shocked by the unexpected surprise of fashion models walking through the aisles of the tent as they mingled and shopped. Afterwards, the team took the promo to the streets where cameras and curiosity were oh so present.
Need to borrow a dress?
This weekend marked the start of me conceptualizing images for my new series of paintings called "Valley of The Queens" which entails me immersing myself in METRIC TONS of research, music, books, and LOTS of writing/journaling...This series has been in me for a while, finally time to start the process of giving birth to it. This should be interesting.
I don't know about anyone else but I was so inspired by The Coveteur's feature on Rachel Zoe's office space this morning that I had to reblog it. I've been a huge fan of her and women like her (for example Shala Monroque, Monika Chiang, Kelly Framel and Kelly Wearstler just to name a few) who have been able to take what they love and not only turn it but themselves into recognizable brands. I also posted these photos to give my self a swift kick in the organizing pants as it were since its taking me what seems like FOREVER to get a handle on my Office/Studio/Closet space set up. I hope you all are having a productive start to your weeks and thanks so much for all the "follow" love keep it coming!!!
