Atmosphere

New York City's Park Avenue Armory was completely transformed on Thursday evening, March 24th. "Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts", a landmark exhibition organized by the American Folk Art Museum, boasted an exciting viewing for attendees during the first half of the evening. The dinner hour, chaired by legendary social Cornelia Guest, rounded out the dynamic of the evening by way of an organic farm to table dinner especially designed for the gala courtesy of Ms. Guest. The dinner was co-chaired by Laura and Richard Parsons.

Upon entry into the vast main room of the Park Avenue Armory, the view was simply breathtaking; each quilt was more vibrant and unique than the one before. It was during the cocktail hour, amidst Bouvet Ladubay Brut NV/ 2008 Louis Jadot Pouilly-Fuissé and soft currents of the Dreamland Orchestra, that Elizabeh Warren,

"CRYSTAL CASTLES" ALBUM: "CRYSTAL CASTLES"

The second, eponymously-named, Crystal Castles record is amazing. The duo, who hail from the great city of Toronto, have taken their music to another level. This mixture of pop, electro, goth and just plain noise is a perfect soundtrack for 2011, even though it was recorded in 2010. My favorite tracks, "Empathy" "Vietnam" and "Intimate", are danceable, yet chill enough for a lazy Sunday afternoon. While most bands today sound like rip-offs of other eras, "Crystal Castles" keeps it original. Score one for the music scene of TO. I'm digging on this piece of playable vinyl and I highly recommend that you check it out.

Robert Wilson

Martha Graham Dance Company celebrated the opening of its 85th Anniversary Season on Tuesday evening, March 16th, at Lincoln Center's Rose Theater. The stellar performance was a sight to behold. While photography was not allowed during the performance for obvious reasons, the imagery remains emblazoned in the minds of those fortunate enough to attend.

Robert Wilson's "Snow on the Mesa" (1995) flowed into "Maple Leaf Rag" (a 1990 Martha Graham original), working as an interesting combination. Drawing the viewer in was Wilson's effortlessly executed personal portrait of Martha Graham. In "Snow on the Mesa", Wilson reflects many aspects of Graham's persona, her interest in early America and the Shakers, her love for nature and the MidWest, her interest in Colin McFee and Balinese dance and, lastly, her interest in Western myths and Asian culture.

REMEMBERING JOAN

There is a fairytale aspect to fashion as every fresh Fashion Week spotlights bevies of new, young designers hoping, as is proper, for fortune and fame in return for their genius and hard work. This year, the charming proliferation of long, comfy, hand-made looking sweaters over dresses and tights reminded me of the “rags to riches’ story of an old friend who pioneered similar styles thirty years ago and died last month on January 9th.

It was the late Seventies. I was, perhaps, 20, just out of Bryn Mawr and the surreal experience of living in Katherine Hepburn’s old suite in Pembroke East on the second floor next to the dining room. Nothing had prepared me for my first job in the New York fashion office of Neiman Marcus, or life in the Big Apple at that time of Studio 54 and Halston, Bianca and Liza defining American ...
