there is nothing like seeing a great handbag in action.

have you ever noticed the similarity between nyc fire call boxes and benevolent Kannon, goddess of mercy?
every design, fashion and art magazine I read lately features some important directional artist making big contributions to their genre. and where do they live? brooklyn!
who says there are no more 'new ideas' in art and design? the newness is in the juxtaposition.
this is how I really get things done. with my little green co-worker/task-master.
clothing & accessories design
useful, economical, modular pieces that can be mix-matched in numerous
ways (because why can't fashion be useful and lasting? I think
it can!) So I say Maximize your Minimalism!

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 Streetto the secret back entrance, I thought they must be somebodies. Guesses?
