Ladies Who Lunch: Rebecca Moses: Curiosities of the Fashionable Kind!

In the middle of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, we took a break from the runway shows and headed out for something a little different.  Renowned designer Rebecca Moses was having an opening night reception for an exhibition of her illustrations, entitled Curiosities of the Fashionable Kind.  I am a big fan of Rebecca Moses’ work as a designer and I also love her illustrations, keeping her last book of illustrations on my night stand at home.

Rebecca Moses succeeded Gianni Versace as the designer and creative director of the Italian fashion house Genny, proving herself as a brilliant designer and later launching her  own luxury lifestyle brand as well.  Her design career had her based mostly in Italy, but now luckily for us, she divides her time between Italy and New York.

Rebecca Moses’ talents don’t lie only in design. She has also made her mark with her illustrations, creating a whimsical world of enchanted creatures with their own unique sense of fashion.  The exhibit is a true delight and demonstrates that Ms. Moses is an artist in all aspects of her work.

The exhibit opening was attended by New York notables and design industry friends and admirers in what turned out to be an evening of socializing amidst the captivating work of Rebecca Moses!

You can visit the unique and enchanting exhibit Curiosities of the Fashionable Kind at the Traffic Art Space on 136 East 74th Street in New York.  The exhibit opened on September 11 and runs through October 27th.

Ladies Who Lunch: Sachika Fall 2012!

The twin sister team of To-Tam and To-Nya Sachika exploded onto the scene in 2010 and have been creating sensational collections ever since.  Their sexy body conscious line has become a favorite in the entertainment industry with prominent stars and public figures sporting them in day to day life and on the red carpet.

Crafting the collections from their rich imaginations, Fall 2012 was based on the imaginary character of Ivanka, a Russian secret agent full of mystery and seduction.  The Sachika twins started their runway show with a film about Ivanka which set the tone for a sexy sophisticated collection was also just plain fun!

Sachika proved once again that they are a design team that knows how to deliver on style!
