I started here, loving this venue-prep shot at the Grand Hotel in Paris for French designer Roland Mouret (known for the curvaceous Galaxy dress) Fall 2011 preview this past week. You can feel the anticipation and excitement that would proceed the season showing of a collection in this one shot..............
.............that somehow led me to this remarkable and mesmerizing glimpse of New York sparkle from From Me To You where the talents of NY photographer and Rue contributor Jamie Beck always takes my breath away. That sparkly stop led me over to Oscar PR Girl where I found satisfying solace on yet another snowy afternoon. Erika Berman really is the PR girl for the fashion house Oscar de la Renta and her behind-the-scenes blog is truly "bananas awesome". Her fun term, not mine, though I just might borrow it from this point forward to describe anything too clever for words.
The workroom of Oscar de la Renta.
The forms. The patterns.
The shoes. "Bananas awesome"...........for sure.
