upcoming exhibits

Designer Claire McCardell and the ballet flat

The checklist for upcoming MoMA exhibition Items: Is Fashion Modern? centers upon 111 items of fashion design, from high fashion to humble masterpieces. One of these items is the versatile and much-loved ballet flat. As part of our research into the shoe, we spoke with fashion historian Julie Eilber who was gracious enough to share her expertise, archive, and enthusiasm for the American designer Claire McCardell, who – along with legendary designer and Ukrainian émigrée Valentina Schlee – was one of the earliest fashion designers to see the potential of the ballet slipper as womenswear.

Emilio Ambasz

While many of the pioneers of green architecture could arguably be criticized as technocratic and dry, this has never applied to Emilio Ambasz. His concept of “green over gray” has been pushing the debate around sustainability forwards since the 1970s, but alongside this concept he has developed a critical approach to architectural meaning and form-making which competes with many of architecture’s more poetic practitioners. Ahead Vladimir Belogolovsky’s upcoming exhibition of Ambasz’s work, “Emilio Ambasz: Architecture Toward Nature,” which is on show at the Singapore’s Urban Redevelopment Center from February 6th – 28th, Belogolovsky shares his interview with the architect in ArchDaily’s “City of Ideas” column.

hello everyone! 

A BIT OF HISTORY: so fairly recently, our great dane Thor and our little retriever pup Digby have been diagnosed with heart worm. i think i’ve posted some of their photos up on this blog in fact! anyway.. these two are actually two of five pedigree dogs my dad bought a while back, but unfortunately our dad never gave them shots, nor does he want to provide any help to them for this treatment as he thinks this is just unnecessary expense. he’s planning to just let them die from the heart worm and then buy new dogs to replace them; i think it’s easy to understand why i don’t want that to happen.

as it is, i have just started on a night shift and my paycheck is still relatively small. i can’t afford to support them on that alone. in my extra time i am also prepping for a small art showing across the country and i can’t afford to take side jobs. so i’ll be doing these in the daytime to pay for the treatment myself! i’m sorry the prices are like this… i’m really trying to raise a huge amount of funds in as short a time i can take, and that’s about $200+ per dog every month and they are already getting very delayed as we stopped them in the beginning stage of their treatment…

i would really appreciate it if you could take the time just to spread this around even… thank you so much to everyone!! i really love these pups, and i’m sorry for asking for all of this but i hope you understand!

thank you everybody ♥
