or wear a work of art"

From head to toe, Neil Armstrong's suit was an engineering marvel with a heavy dose of expert tailoring for good measure.
Every stitch had to be be tough, flexible and airtight.

A few fashion Fridays ago, I posted photos of whimsical dresses made out paper plates and pages of a book. As creative and imaginative as they are, nothing quite holds a candle to the work of Isabelle de Borchgrave (but please don't hold a candle to her art!). A painte...

Wishing you a Peaceful Passover

Happy Easter
