Exciting Exhibit Excursions - Part 1

Dear Readers,

Yes, the time has come for the long-promised post about my escapades this past summer!  For the first time, I was able to go to NYC this summer not once but TWICE!!  My lovely bosses at Greta Constantine, Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong, became my fairy godfathers and took me with them!  The first time, we went to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit, Savage Beauty, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art!  The second time, we went during New York Fashion Week!  Lucky me!!!

First stop, the Met:

And now for Savage Beauty.  This exhibit was, in a word, amazing.  It was the best exhibit I have ever been to and was incredibly well done.  It also gave me an eerily strong sense of McQueen's spiral into increasing darkness.  It was an obsessive exploration.  Each piece was a beautiful work of art, and I've included a few of my favourite photos from the exhibit below:

The Museum itself was beautiful too!  I can't even imagine how long it would take to go through the whole place.  We took a ridiculous amount of time just at the McQueen exhibit!

Besides the exhibit, we also did a lot of shopping ;)

one of our celeb sightings, Lara Stone!  We also saw Agyness Deyn & possible Joan Smalls & Shalom Harlow :)

One of the things I loved most about NYC was the gorgeous architecture:

And now for the second time around...our visit to Lincoln Center during NYFW, where we snapped pics of the fashionable crowd and had our pics snapped too!  I could have people watched here all day long!
