inspiration
furniture (especially chairs from the 50s and 60s), uniforms, repeating patterns, menswear, Oscar Niemeyer, traditional Japanese architecture, the Rimpa School and Ogata Korin's 8-Point Bridge, Matisse, bromeliads, succulents and other waxy flora

particular loves
bamboo, coral, moss, woodgrain, silhouettes & other cut-outs, plastic, low-resolution images, the photo copier, off-registration prints, Max Ernst's Lunar Asparagus, NYC fire call boxes that look like Kannon, Fauvist color sense, the Noguchi Museum, pretty much all of Abstract Expressionism

favorite heel style
the wedge, but a sleek modern interpretation

second favorite
the stiletto

current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how about Royal Elastics? I must go try some on. I really like the non-sneakeryness of their styles.

fashion week

The Tents at Bryant Park, September 15, 1pm-ish


People are funny. Fashion people are funnier. Well, that's just my opinion. You can disagree if you want. I strolled over to Bryant Park yesterday at lunch to size up the crowds and do a little photographing. The above photo sums up the whole scene for me. People gawking and shooting whomever looked important, even if they had no idea who they were. The energy is great. Everyone is excited. An English woman with a charming accent asked me right after I shot this pic who the lady in red was. I said, I have no idea. I was shooting the lady next to me shooting the lady in red. I am pretty sure she had no idea who she was either.



Wait, is that Project Runway's Tim Gunn?


Tim Gunn waiting for his close-up, looking placid.


O.N.E. must be the official water of New York Fashion Week.
I saw it all over the park. I thought it was the equally fashionable coconut water.
But no. Oh wait. O.N.E. also makes coconut water.


Even the bird has it's 15 minutes.


See the blonde in the black dress whose face is mostly obscured by the brunette
in the backless dress? Well that's Liz Lemon's intern on 30 Rock. Katrina Bowden.
At the secret back entrance on 40th Street.


Yes, I got whipped up into the frenzy too. I didn't know who these people were,
but since they were in a black car with tinted windows riding along 40th Street
to the secret back entrance, I thought they must be somebodies. Guesses?

Love your pictures!

While everyone else is so busy with the fashion street scenes and the glam photo-op these actually make me feel like I'm there. This is the reality of Bryant Park NYFW!
