One More Weekend

We didn't have much free time during our quick trip back to New York – mostly running errands and tying up loose ends.

Doesn't really make for great blog posting.

We did however have a chance to stop by the Museum at F.I.T., for a run through its excellent current exhibit, Gothic: Dark Glamour.

Alexander McQueen, Fall 2007. Not surprisingly, there was a bunch of McQueen.

Rodarte, Fall 2008. The Mulleavy sisters were inspired by Japanese horror movies and wanted the red chiffon in this dress to look like blood in water.

There aren't that many images on the web and no photos are allowed in the gallery – but I recommend checking out the show if you can. It's up through early February at F.I.T.

Also on view is Arbiters of Style: Women at the Forefront of Fashion. (Seems like that should go without saying, but no matter.) It's worth a look as well.
