First, we'd like to give a big THANK YOU to our social marketer Elise Ramsay who had almost single-handedly given us a tasteful presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and others. Though we will miss her, we are happy she has found another stepping-stone where we're sure she can make a big splash. All the best, Elise!
On July 19th, we held a fun trunk show for Sculpture to Wear by Ilana Krepchin during which she brought most of her collection, which included some new fun pieces. Of course, many of them stayed with us, so that you can come by and try them on yourself! Here's a photo of one of her series of "floating" pieces - we love the dimensionality, and how they remind us of planets wandering in space.
More recently on August 1, we held a reception for photographer David Barnes, and his series of "in-camera double exposure" photography. His artwork is currently adorning our walls, and is available for purchasing through the end of September. His ready-to-hang prints range in size from 10" x 10" to 20" x 20", and from $80 - $200. Here's a sample of his work - silhouettes of models against a brightly colored background leave an abstract design - plus a party shot.
By popular demand, we will be holding a "These are a Few of My Favorite Things" night. Well, "One of my favorite things", actually. Everyone has a favorite dress, blouse, pant, or other piece of clothing that has been damaged by time, no longer fits, or a new one can no longer be found anywhere. Well, bring it to the event! Everyone will get to see each other's favorite piece - maybe you will find you like someone else's even more than your own - and then we can vote on which ones we like the best. Then Whats-Nü's own design whiz, Lena, will use the pieces for inspiration, and hopefully bring them back to life so they may again be enjoyed. If you're not already on our mailing list, please be sure to sign up to hear more about this and other events!
During Boston Fashion Week, we will host, along with Nancy's Gone Green, an Eco-Friendly Fall Fashion Event October 3rd (get your FREE ticket here), showcasing a number of lines that offer sustainable, comfortable apparel. We will have refreshments, plus a little after-party discount! More info soon...
