Last night, I went to my designing friend Zang Toi’s Spring 2015 runway show at Lincoln Center. The show was also a celebration of the 25th anniversary of Zang’s line. That’s a long run in fashion! You have to multiply fashion years the way you would dog years. Like, 25 years in fashion is at […]

I am pleased to see that pink elephants are in style, or, more specifically, in the Thursday Styles section of the New York Times. As the Times reported, attendees of runway shows being held at Milk Studios during New York Fashion Week will be greeted by a 10-foot-tall inflatable pink elephant, designed by artist Tristin […]

My designing friend Zang Toi (pronounced “Toy”) presented his Fall 2014 collection at the tents at Lincoln Center last Wednesday. Zang is often inspired by places and eras, and this season’s inspiration was 1930s Shanghai, aka the “Paris of the Orient.” Highlights included the sleek trouser suits Zang does so well … … brocade … […]

Marc Jacobs will show his Fall 2014 collection tonight at 8 PM at his usual venue: the armory at 68 Lexington Avenue. I wasn’t invited, but I did go to Marc’s shows for several years, thanks to MrB’s job. I think the last one we went to was in September 2007. That show was memorable […]

My designing friend Zang Toi showed his Spring 2014 “Ballet Babe” collection at Lincoln Center last week. A real ballet babe — American Ballet Theatre principal Cory Stearns — got the show started. Here’s the final walk of the show, followed by Zang’s bow. (You can hear the couple sitting to my left discussing which […]

The New York Times says New York Fashion Week, as we know it, maybe be nearing the end of its run, as designers lean towards smaller presentations or going digital. But for now, the shows are kicking off as usual. I’m looking forward to going to my designing friend Zang Toi‘s show at Lincoln Center […]

My designing friend Zang Toi had his Fall 2013 show at Lincoln Center last Wednesday. This season, he was inspired by Imperial Russia. Opulence. Zang has it! I was particularly attracted to the pieces in amethyst and emerald. Now that I think of it, maybe I’m looking for something to go with my Marie Antoinette […]

Is anyone else as entertained as I am by the fashion show being put on by Jill Kelley? Kelley is the 37-year-old woman whose complaint about half-a-dozen anonymous emails set off the FBI investigation that ended the career of CIA director David Petraeus. Besieged by press at her home, in Tampa, Fla., she’s stepping out […]

My new niece, Sabrina Berry, is a considerate infant. She made her debut in a Chicago suburb when I was already on my way to the Windy City for the Gold Coast Fashion Award Show, held September 28 as a fundraiser for Lurie Children’s Hospital. The Gold Coast organizers invite “the hottest new design talent” […]

My designing friend Zang Toi showed his Spring 2013 line on September 9 during New York Fashion Week at Lincoln Center.  I wore the floor-length, cowboy-print dress I got from Zang’s Spring 2011 collection. I kept the accessories casual with a fringed purse and boots; I’m not sure that the lady in the blue shirt […]
