The Fall shows at Mecedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center gave us lots to ogle at, dream about and otherwise covet. An unexpected highlight was the discovery of San Francisco's Academy of Art Univerity magazine, called 180. I tagged along when the home design industry's most dapper publicist Andrew Joseph Boepple hosted a coterie of interior deigners, stylists and interiors editors for the Academy's fashion show. (His firm represents the University's superb School of Interior Architecture & Design which by the way you can attend online!)
The show was fun, our seats were great, but the prize was the magazine that was on our chairs. What a super treat. Great photography, smart original editorial, and the cherry on top: giant (really!12" x 15") fashion illustrations by the great Gladys Palmer.
A delicious article by Herself recalls her own school days with mentors including Muriel Pemberton and Elizabeth Suter. Gladys has been documenting, promoting and influencing fashion for decades. You've seen and read her work in Harper's Bazaar, Vogue and everywhere else.
She is now the school's Executive Director of Fashion and that alone is great reason to study there. If like me you're a grownup and can't go back to school just now, you can pre-order GPP's forthcoming book From Eve to Yves.
