Curator and connoisseur Carole Tanenbaum invites you on an unforgettable tour of her private collection, complete with stunning photographs and an insider’s look at the history of costume jewelry.
Wednesday nights’ event was a hit! I was joined by Julia Grieve and Nathalie Atkinson. The turn-out for our lively discussion, about fashion’s new trend, ‘upcycling’, was terrific- a full house! We focused our discussion on the creation of beautiful objects made from materials considered to have no intrinsic value. Also the idea of embellishing the "old" into new designs. There were some interesting comments and questions from the audience as well, and I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject!
