Living in New York City, I’ve gone to the MET a good number of times for school purposes. Recently, as an Orientation Leader at my school, I brought a number of new students to the MET and although I wasn’t super excited to take another hike uptown to get to the MET, I was excited to finally get to see Rei Kawakubo’s exhibit.

Rei Kawakubo is a Japanese fashion designer who founded the brand Comme des Garçons. Her exhibit was called “Art of the In-Between” and it showcased many of the interesting pieces that she has created throughout the decades that she has been designing.

Her pieces are known for being incredibly unique and she has opened up a whole new style of fashion designing. As a fashion design student myself, it was definitely an interesting exhibit and I appreciate Rei Kawakubo and the work that she has done.

Here are some of my favorite pieces from the exhibit:

What’s with Donald Trump’s long ties?

Some may call the long tie – quaint (OK, maybe just New Englanders). But, this one during the inauguration, seems to have jumped beyond even the quaint zone.

If you like your tie long, you would think a tie clip should help. But, no, Donald has a much more economical way – how about some scotch tape!

 

 

 

Apparently, Trump is continuing to use the scotch tape. Here (left below), he is walking with grandchildren across the White House lawn. And, no, he is not just limited to taping the tie down. How about taping them together.

If he can only issue and Executive Order banning windy days.

Interestingly, Trump did not always wear his tie long. As late as 2005, Trump is shown with tie at somewhat normal length.

My sister is a fashion design student at Parsons. For one of her current projects, she wanted to take inspiration from children so she Skyped into my class and asked my students to do some drawings for her. She asked them three things and here are some of their best work. I thought they turned out so awesome!

1. How do you feel?

2. Draw a creature that you want to spend time with (a monster friend).

3. Draw a creature that you are scared of (a scary monster).
