Celebrity Spotting at the Renegade Craft Fair...

Walking into the Renegade Craft Fair in Williamsburg this Saturday afternoon, I spotted a little boy playing with a blow up Spider-man doll.  He was so engaged with the act that instinct made me take out my camera and start snapping photos.  I suddenly realized that his father (who happened to be close by) is Watchmenstar Patrick Wilson. He also starred opposite Kate [...]

First Day of Lauren Moffat Sale in Chelsea:  Fantastic Finds... thru June 4

I stopped by after work today to check out the Lauren Moffatt sample sale to find a pleasant atmosphere - no crowds here and the employees were very helpful.  On offer were racks of spring/summer 2009 fun and feminine dresses ($110-$160), tops are $80 and skirts $60.  A preview sale took place yesterday but there's still lots of merchandise left in pastel colors and[...]

Invitation Only:  Christian Louboutin Sample Sale in Midtown

High-end ESCADA has low-end sale...

I found this weekend's Escada sale at Chelsea's Metropolitan Pavilion pretty much a waste of time.  The offerings of the uber prestigious brand are frumpy - not fabulous.  I've attended other Escada sales where there were racks of elegant and tasteful clothing.  This one was a letdown - one of the worst sales I have ever been to.  What a shame that the large space[...]

Steven Alan sale in Tribeca gets a thumbs up... thru May 17

The reports about the Steven Alan sale in Tribeca are good.  The crowd is apparently smaller and the pricing better this time around.  Racked reports pricing for the designer's own line:  women's short-sleeved shirts are going for $48, long-sleeved for $58. Women's jackets from $50 to $125, cotton dresses are $99, and skirts and shorts are $50 to $70. The menswear[...]
