Artist Olek displayed her fashion-y, humorous crochet artwork, outfitting the window and busts throughout the shop, securing an outpost on the bench outside the boutique of “Couples Therapy,” models wearing a three-legged full body crochet suit of balloons, who startled more than a couple passersby when they breathed!
Portraitist and Lower East Side fixture Antony Zito, one of The 4Heads Collective and founders of the successful Governor’s Island Art Fair, dropped by early in the evening, taking a break from his curating duties to support McDonald and beam about recent press, including last week’s Huffington Post embrace of the fair.
New fashion works in the boutique ranged from the fabulous to the absolutely stunning. Of course, it goes without saying that there were great apparel pieces from Comme des Garcons, Rick Owens and Boudicca. But also new recycled jewelry finds from Maria Zureta (from designer Roberto Costa) and an Eastern European designer who hand ties satin ribbons and crystals for the most breath-taking necklaces.
Happy Birthday to YOU, dear COS!
