I loved the textural quality of this fabric. It's finished with rayon piping
and it has a bit of a rocker feel though it is also versatile. Wear it open
or wear it wrapped... Photo by Jim Jatcko

Ralph Rucci is the master of tailoring, exquisite detailing,
and innovative cutting. The lines he creates on the clothes are
stunning. I loved the sheer piecing, so subtle and refined.
No one else does clothing like this- it's magical, sculptural,
and ethereal. One of the most surprising looks was an ivory gown
with an opening in the back showing a paillette tube.
I also liked the sheer plastic inserts.
There was applause throughout the show and then a standing ovation!

Also at the same HPGRP galleries is Japanese fashion photography.
Here are a few by Mitsuaki Koshizuka.

the inspiration was a nostalgic feeling for vintage NYC-
freedom, good times, energy and laughter
sterling silver 17.5" chain and solid sterling
silver subway token 7/8" diameter
The Y cutout design is from 1985 and was worth $. 90
the wear on the token is authentic giving it a bit of character.
“Five Boroughs” Pentagram Token Necklace
original pentagram NYC city subway token
cast in sterling silver with a matte finish on an 17.5"
sterling silver chain and a lobster clasp in sterling silver
this token was newly minted in 1991 for the fare increase to $1.25,
but not used at that time-instead they were held until
the $1.50 fare increase in 1995.
it was finally phased out in favor of the Metrocard system,
just after midnight on April 13, 2003
