Barney’s Fashion’s Night Out: Advanced Style

The other night Debra and I went to Barney’s Fashion’s Night to see Maayan co host a game of musical chairs. I was delighted to see so many older ladies and gentleman in the crowd of fashion spectators. I spotted two spectacular gals from afar and couldn’t resist taking their photo with Debra. All three women treat style as a form of art and much of what they wear is either thrifted, gifted, or handmade. Marjorie Nezin, in black, is a designer who makes wearable art and Debra made her hat and jewelry out of banana fiber. These three visual artists show us that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on clothes to look good, you just have to put a little thought into it!

Check out Lina Plioplyte’s video below for a more intimate look into Salamon’s fashionable world.

Bebop Style

My good friend Danise and I were walking around the East Village when we spotted this stylish gentleman. He told us that we could take his picture if we waited while he ran in to a store to buy another hat. He is a saxophone player in a Bebop band and dresses in, “whatever feels right”. I can’t wait to check out his show!
