Jean Phillippe Delhomme at the French Institute in NYC

This is another great show I'm ecstatic about since I'm a huge Delhomme fan. I've been viewing his work since I was teenager pouring over fashion magazines back in the 90s.  Known for his satirical approach to fashion, design and pop culture, it should prove interesting to see what his clever imagery has to say now.  Click here for more info.

Enchanting Sorolla exhibit in NYC

The Reina Sofia Spanish Institute is once again showcasing one of Spain's true masters, Valencian artist Joaquin Sorolla. Entitled 'Joaquin Sorolla & the Glory of Spanish Dress' and curated by Vogue's Andre Leon Talley, this exhibit highlights the regional dress style of rural life in the countryside. Full of rich colors and lively imagery this exhibit follows the same spirit  as the previous 2010 standout show 'Balenciaga: Spanish Master' also held at the Spanish Institute.
