Truly Julie with the “it” designer of the year Prabal Gurung.Prabal Gurung and Michelle Smith briefly ditched fashion design to play photography curators this month. Michelle is the designer behind the vibrant brand Milly. The two along with three other fashion greats — Diane von Furstenberg, Vera Wang and Zac Posen — sifted through the New York Times photography archives from the past 100 years and picked their favorite 50. Reprints of the photos are available for sale in three different sizes, framed or unframed, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Council of Fashion Designers of America, which fosters and cultivates emerging designers. Prabal is the CFDA winner this year! The Fifty Photographs exhibit is on display at Bloomingdale’s 59th Street until November 26…just head up to the Designer Collections on the 4th floor. My personal favorites include the NYC cabs and Flatiron Building (both from DVF’s picks) as well as the dancers (Vera Wang’s picks). If you’re stumped on holiday gifts…these photos would be easy as a…pun intended…snap! Check out the entire story including my interview with Prabal by clicking here. And on a sidebar…I wore this Prabal dress to an event…and it was a big hit!
