I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
Yesterday I visited the Perelman Building of the Philadelphia Museum of Art to see the Inspiring Fashion Exhibit. This exhibit consisted of 17 looks from many design houses in tribute to Philadelphia fashion great Tom Marotta, former vice president of couture for Saks Fifth Avenue who died 2 years ago. The fashions were all contemporary, the oldest one a black Oscar de La Renta dress from 1995. The exhibit also featured video interviews with Carolina Herrera, Badgley Mischkca, Ralph Rucci, and Peter Som. If you can, I encourage you to visit the museum and view the beautiful pieces as well as the surreal designs of Marcel Wanders in the Daydreams exhibit.
