With each collection, Michelle Smith, founder and designer of MILLY designs signature prints that act as roadmaps for the ready to wear season. Here, we give you a behind the scenes look at how a print comes to life.
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL:
Snapped by a member of the MILLY team, this photograph was taken in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle. Epitomizing the hustle and bustle of city life, the print features bright yellow NYC taxi cabs and the city’s stunning horizon. Transformed by our graphic designer into a continuous print, this design is truly one-of-a-kind.
HOW TO WEAR IT:
Transferred onto canvas, the city print is available in tote form. Carry this luxurious custom-made handbag when you’re looking to make a statement. A definite conversation starter, this tote features an interior zip compartment and is sized to fit all of your essentials, from your iPad to your beauty must-haves.
In a pre-publicist, pre-paparazzi, pre-Intstagram world back in the 70s and 80s, when there were parties, there was Brad Elterman to capture them.
No stranger to the party scene, he made his mark as a teenage rock ‘n roll photographer who got his start after a photo he took of Bob Dylan became famous.
Elterman was an unassuming kid who got unprecedented access to the luminaries of the time, from The Ramones to Joan Jett to Madonna.
Milk Gallery has the party encapsulated in an exhibition at 450 West 15th Street called Dog Dance, a collection of Brad’s iconic work that captures the gritty glamour of the late ’70s and early ’80s. Catch it from now until May 18 - and remember, never be Sorry for Partying.
The legendary fashion photographerRoxanne Lowit got her start in the ‘70s when her friend, the late fashion illustratorAntonio Lopez, gave her an Instamatic 110 camera. Before long, she was establishing herself in the fashion world by pioneering the art of backstage photography at a Halston runway show.
She captured what some call the “golden age” of fashion, when supermodels ruled the world. Feeling nostalgic? Us, too: Lowit’s photos from the last four decades are the subject of the exhibition “Roxanne Lowit: Be Fabulous,” on display through January 18, 2014, at Steven Kasher Gallery in New York.
