Full fashion assault in NYC

Photo from:
Set in Style: The Jewelry of Van Cleef & Arpels at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum was great not only for the huge collection of Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery but also for the interesting and engaging way in which they displayed them.  There were display stands that enlarged and projected the image of the jewel so that when you stood looking down the details were more apparent than if you looked straight at the pieces themselves.  There was also this magnifying display case.  Very fun!  As with most exhibits, photos were not allowed so that is all I have!

Next I headed to the Met for Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.  There's nothing really to say that hasn't been said by countless journalists, commentators and other (more eloquent) people in fashion industry.  To see his work in such close proximity is amazing.  The detail, the ideas, the theatrics are extraordinary.  I only have one word: Wow.  (Again, this photo was an undercover shot because I wanted to have something to share.  No photos allowed!)
