astridland on BRAVO: featured in new reality series

My dress is playing in a promotional loop for NYC Prep Bravo's soon-to-debut series.

From the supima blog:

"As a voiceover introduces the concept of a show about teenagers who live a fashionable, glamorous life in New York City, a model wearing
Astrid Brucker's undercover evening gown ... and strides down the Gotham Hall runway.

Best of all, the promotions run most often during the middle of Bravo's "The Fashion Show" hosted by Isaac Mizrahi, to play to the fashion-faithful. "NYC Prep" premieres Tuesday, June 16 at 11 p.m. ET/PT and will move to its regular timeslot on Tuesday, June 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT."

The Line of Fashion

Works by legendary illustrators curated by Robert W. Richards

The charming and dapper Robert led us through the exhibit and he
had an extensive recall and knowledge of the history of illustration and the artists their nuances and their achievements.

Robert's illustration of Patrick McDonald

Robert mentioned that here Patrick is wearing Night and Day cuff links, commissioned by Linda Porter, for Cole Porter. They were a present to Cole upon the release of his song "Night and Day".

Robert also told me that one of my favorite illustrators Antonio Lopez was colorblind and his partner Juan did all the coloring. I was so happy to catch the show-today was the last day!
Here are some of my favorites:
