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.
