phoebe wrap

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

I love Chado Ralph Rucci

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!

Sally LaPointe

My favorite show so far!

Blanc de Chine

Gorgeous silk tunics and dresses, beautifully made and
lovely because they have so much movement.
Very elegant & chic!



The CHRISHABANA jewelry presentation featured subversive
and fetish jewelry both fun and stylish.

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

And these two are by Mikiya Takimoto

Good for more than one fare

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
