Williamsburg is continuing its own fashion week… end, seperate from the tourist hoopla- of the one in Bryant Park. Late, yes. Late in up- and- coming- fashion! Heck no! Maybe it’s because we like to do things are own way here in Brooklyn, maybe the “end” is because we like to keep it short and sweet, it could be that we like to have the last word or maybe it’s because we’re “fashionably late,” everyone is excited for Williamsburg Fashion Week…end!

This exhibit is out of this world! Just like most of America, I hadn’t heard the name “Isabel Toledo” until Michelle Obama wore one of her dresses to the president’s inaguaration, but after seeing this exhibit I can say I’m a die hard fan. The Museum at FIT has also done an exceptional job of curating this exhibit by showing the actual shapes of the patterns next to each completed dress. They also divided her designs up in different sections of “Organic Geometry,” “Shadow,” “Suspension,” “Liquid Architecture,” “Shape,” “Manipulated Surfaces” and “Origami.” Here are some pictures of my favorite pieces from the exhibit:

Today I went to see the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new fashion exhibit “The Model as Muse, Embodying Fashion” and it was fantastic! The concept of the exhibit is to show the way iconic images in fashion photography, film and style have influenced and affected fashion in history. The Metropolitan Museum of Art did such an exceptional job at curating this exhibit because they included everything from each factor that played a role as a “Muse” in fashion at that time. This included film clips, music videos, original copies of Vouge and Vanity Fair through the decades, music and bringing famous fashion photographs to real life. You can take a virtual tour of “The Model As Muse, Embodying Fashion” by watching this video the Met put together:

Some of my favorite fashion photographs were included in the Model As Muse exhibit, including this one that was taken for Yves Saint Laurent’s Safari line in the 60’s!

This vivid photograph taken by Richard Avedon is one of my all- time favorites in Fashion history. They recreated the actual scene with the original dress for the entrance of the Model As Muse Exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The Model As Muse is everything an exhibit should be. It’s vivid, exciting, historical and stimulating. I highly recommend visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art before it’s gone!
