It may be snowing and blowing outside but here at ArtsEcho Galleria it is just about the warmest it has ever been! All day long we have had a photoshoot going on here (on, near, over and partly under) the famous pink couch (while some stalwart folk have been shopping.)
Our good friends, photographer Edwin Flores and stylist Tyler Callaghan, together with makeup artist Nik Masi, have been photographing some of our amazing clothes on two stunning (and very charming) models (Paola from Brazil & Gabrielle from Lithuania). Four of them are about 8 feet tall so I feel like a small plant in the middle of a forest. Here's Nik and Gabrielle (who is wearing a hand embroidered antique Mexican dress from our collection):
And here is Paola in a 1950's vintage wool dress with a headband and feathers:
Needless to say (but I'll say it anyway) these are photos I took...(I am generally acknowledged to be the world's worst photographer...and that's by people who love me...) Next week I'll enclose some of Edwin's photos and, believe me, you won't believe it...
We were supposed to have our very first ART & ACCESSORIES PARTY (also known as FABULOUS JEWELRY PARTY) tonight in New Milford. Postponed 'til next Sunday (emphasis on the "Sun"). But, of course, every day is a jewelry party at ArtsEcho Galleria. Here is one of our latest acquisitions...it's sterling silver, Brazilian drusy and carnelians and it's about FOUR INCHES LONG! As always, a unique and wearable piece of artwork.
Next Friday night (March 5) you are all welcome to "GuitarBurst" with the superb Diego Garcia at 8pm. And Saturday, March 13, at 7pm, is Bravo Brazil!
Sandra and the energetic, highly capable, learn-something-new-every-day ArtsEcho Galleria team, Karina, Crystal, Zoe, Ben, Arianna, and our terrific (and much appreciated) interns, Claude and Sommer.
PS: Here are two photos of Gabrielle...one with the traditional haute couture "model look" and the other, where we made her laugh! (By the way, she's wearing a lovely Nanette Lepore jacket and one of our ethnic Indian necklaces...as a headpiece, of course...what else?)
