Game of Thrones, Fashion Fleek!

23 Aug

Whether you are a Game of Thrones fan or not, you can’t escape the buzz and references still going on since this past Sunday! Episode 66 Beyond the Wall! Well I’m just as shocked of the loss!

This is a girl who loves a good storyline where somewhere there’s a princess, a castle, some swords, hobbits, lots of ale and dragons! The whole entire episode was epic, the best yet in my opinion in building the audience to feel and await the unexpected outcome!

Well I’m here not to talk about the ending; but the fashion – the detail, the time and creative focus on the costumes! The sets, the scenery and music; all to help you understand each step of the way! A rescue mission from the South to the North, where Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is dressed in this gorgeous to the floor fur coat. Definitely warm for the ride. The detail reminded of sewn tucks, Albert Nipon tucks but in fur!

If you tune in; have you ever noticed the GOT costume designers always place a beautiful piece of jewelry for Danny to represent her children (Rhaegal, Viserion, and Drogon) or the different stages in her journey.

Sometimes a ring, a necklace…this time a beautiful white gold chain with a clasp of the three dragons laying near her shoulder. Her makeup also so beautiful, from plum hues to wintery rose.

You are probably thinking, you’re so engrossed in what’s going on, you didn’t even notice (I totally understand). For those who love set design and costumes, like I do ….Game of Thrones is so delightful and wonderful! I loved this episode especially.

The season finale will be here soon in a few days; what’s in store…..Sunday, August 27th 9 pm can’t get here fast enough!

Kips Bay Decorator Show House 2014 – Mansion on Madison

25 May

photo 3 (8)It’s less than one week left to see this year’s pick for the Kips Bay Decorator House 2014, and I made it!   I’d chose a Thursday evening to attend, it was rainy and quite humid – but the anticipation was well worth it!  I attend every year, to get ideas and see the designer’s amazing work!  All for a beautiful cause, the Kips Bay children!   Here are some pictures of the rooms.  For a full listing of all the designers, please click: DESIGNERS.  If you in NYC, there’s still time – it closes on May 29th.

The place this year is the Villard Mansion on 51st Madison Ave!

The Villard Mansion was constructed in 1884, designed by the architecture firm McKim, Mead & White three years after they started their company. The houses were commissioned by Henry Villard, then president of the Northern Pacific Railway, shortly before his railroad empire began to crumble. Ownership of the building changed through many hands throughout the century.

In 1968, the Landmarks Preservation Commission designated the complex a historical landmark. Restoration and construction for a new hotel complex was proposed by real estate developer Harry B. Helmsley who constructed the 51-story New York Palace Hotel tower directly behind the original building. The project was designed by architects Emery Roth & Sons and Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer in 1977 and completed in 1980.

The original building was restored in 2003 and office space was furnished for city preservation group The Municipal Art Society, as part of an agreement to save the building from demolition.

Fashion, Designs, Textiles, oh MY!   I am so happy to announce my new-found alliance with CityBlis!

There are so many talented designers that you and I have never met!  This is where City Blis comes in!  They have given me the wonderful opportunity to be in on their vision and dedication to a designer’s work; to share with YOU!

CityBlis has invited me to report on these designers and the CityBlis project itself.  CityBlis knows that I am always looking for new designers, new products and new stories to talk about!!!  It’s a wonderful platform to be part of; which helps the designer both locally and internationally.  It helps the consumer too, to also be introduced and become acquainted with a designer based on their own livelihood and bizazzle!

“At Cityblis we celebrate all of these things and bring to life all the people that share their stories with you so that you may be inspired every day.”

So from time to time, I will be able to provide you with finds that I think are absolutely great! Say for instance, designers like Loredana Novotnin,  a young Romanian fashion designer – where the detail in her work is so remarkable; as well beautiful.

Or another designer who takes T – Shirts to another level of extraordinary, that would be Lady Derringer!  New unique designs are added each season!  So if you have a teenager in your home, their right!  T- Shirts are important and Lady Derringer would agree!
