Good Thursday morning from New York.
This has already been a tumultuous week in our country. I have spent many hours indoors, staying away from hay-fever-producing pollen, but instead following developments on the political, governmental front.
The pace of various investigations seems to be quickening, even though the President has fired the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Russian governmental officials met with the President in the Oval Office of the White House yesterday. American press members were not allowed to take photographs. Tass was allowed to take photographs.
On Tuesday, I did escape my apartment. I met a friend at The Metropolitan of Art to view a fabulous new exhibit honoring the Comme des Garcons designs of Rei Kawakubo. You all may enjoy viewing the link in the previous sentence. I will also share with you some of the photographs that I took while touring the exhibit.
The exhibition designers have created a set of bright white stages and "fitting rooms" that are starkly lit to allow viewers to see many details.
The groups of mannequins sometimes show designs from differing collections.
In many instances, it is possible to have a very close up view, allowing one to examine the tailoring and materials.
Lots of creativity has been used in creating the head dresses, too.
Many of the black garments reveal to the viewer that they are not completely constructed from one shade of black. Black can have a cool blue tone, or a warmer brown tone.
Some of the garments might not be what one would choose to wear, and yet in some cases, a particular garment might be very wearable.
I do plan to visit this exhibit several more times and only present a small sampling here of what I saw on Tuesday.
It will be interesting to see if the exhibit draws crowds as the weeks go by. On Tuesday, it was fun to see that some of the visitors were also dressed in very interesting ways.
I am hoping that some of you who see these photographs might also be able to visit the exhibit.
Over on my Instagram page you will also be able to see a short video I made at this exhibit.
Thank you all for your visits and comments. Now, I will turn my attention back to watching Senate hearings and working on my current Intrelac knitting project.
