I had the pleasure this week of being on the review panel for MECA student, ERICA. An Illustration student, she has recently turned her talents to fashion- something that I, too, studied way back in art school. I especially enjoyed these gesture sketches, which captured both the mood of the body and of the nature of the garment.

window candy

I know that I design clothing and own a shop, but truth be told, I am not much of a shopper. I am much more likely to frequent galleries or museums with the free time in New York. This trip offered up a couple of inspiring venues, though. The one pictured was not even open at the time I photographed. I think it is called "Really Great Things" and is on the upper West Side, where we usually stay. I tried to catch a taxi reflection in each photo, just for fun. Very pretty stuff.
