Come Knit With Us was the theme of the PH5 Fall Winter 2024 New York Fashion Week Presentation designed by Zoe Champion and Wei Lin.  Scarves were cleverly draped, integrated and built into the garments in inspirational effective ways for this innovative hi-tech eco-conscious witty, whimsical, fun, functional collection.

Most models wore scarves, caps, head coverings which hid the hair, which was by Carly Loura for Cutler Salons/Redken.

Visit to Dover Street Market NY - 2024

A visit to the Dover Street Market in New York (and London) is always been such fun.  (Even if I have to go by elevator from floor to floor and once the lovely old elevator conked out in New York, on a Sunday, stranding me on the 6th floor, until the fire department came to the rescue to take me down!).  There’s 6 floors and a lower level, with mostly avant-garde inspo on every floor.  At a price, I must warn.   Here’s just some inspo from a recent visit.
