A Heartfelt Evening

18 Feb

Heart and home are always a winning combination. On the March 10, the Kips Bay Show Decorator Show House Palm Beach will be the site of a “Heartful Evening,” to benefit Simply From the Heart. I’ve written about the charity Simply from the Heart on this blog, and I’ve featured images about the Kips Bay Show House when I edited Style magazine, years ago.

This year’s event starts at 5:30 on the evening of March 10 and promises to be spectacular. Not only can you donate to benefit a great cause, but you will be able to see a fabulous home on Flager Dr. in West Palm Beach, Florida decorated by prestigious interior designers.

Simply from the Heart is a nonprofit organization raising the self-esteem for severely ill patients through therapeutic treatments such as massages, manicures, pedicures and more.

A Fashion Lens

2 Feb

I recently visited the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida to view the Nicola Erni Collection of fashion photography. The exhibit High Fashion & Street Style featured more than 250 photographs by renowned artists. Some of the photographers include: Richard Avedon, Horst P. Horst, Vivian Maier and many more.

This debut exhibit features rare vintage prints from the 1930s to today. Photographer Norman Parkinson captured Wanda and Ostriches (above) for British Vogue in South Africa in 1951.

Jerry Schatzberg shot this photo, below, of Betsy Pickering on Wall Street for US Vogue in 1958.

There are plenty of modern photos as well including this one below by Tommy Ton printed in 2014. Note the Louis Vuitton handbag, the snazzy boots and the linked bracelets. It’s a great outfit for 2023.

Fashion photography is as beautiful as the clothing.
