RIP Oscar de la Renta

It was such an honor to meet you, photograph your wonderful creations, and see your genius at work first hand. The world is a lot less beautiful now. RIP Oscar.

THOM BROWNE: FALL/WINTER 2014

THOM BROWNE- Fall-Winter 2014 068

Thom Browne does not put on a simple fashion show. His shows are an experience. Something rarely found in New York, that one would see more commonly during Paris’ Couture week.

My third time seeing one of his collections presented  is something I’ll never forget.
I arrived backstage relatively early, at the tail end of the hair and makeup test. It’s always fun to see a preview of what’s to come, hours before the show is scheduled to begin. As usual, the beauty looks for this season did not disappoint.

Jazz Age Lawn Party: Summer 2014

Jazz Age Lawn Party - Summer 2014 033

The Jazz Age Lawn Party, held two weekends a year on NYC’s Governor’s Island, is my hands down favorite “Summer in New York” event to attend. This year, for the first time, I went in both June and August.

I still had a blast, but my first visit in June was very hot, and the event seemed weirdly overcrowded (a first in the many years I’ve been attending). Yesterday’s event was much more laid back, and the weather was pleasant– making it even easier to run around and capture so many amazingly dressed guests in all of their finery. With a few breaks to sip champagne and picnic with friends of course.

Needless to say, if you ever have the chance to attend— GO. This is one of those words cannot do it justice type of gatherings. So I’ll just let the images do all the talking from here.
