The installation itself its beautiful, an abandoned industrial building redesigned to house the exhibit, and the 10 dresses are breathtaking.
I believe that they are the only American designers that produce such couture-like quality garments.
After Pitti, the dresses are actually heading to the permanent collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

Over the weekend a few of us internationals went to my friend's house in Lyon. My mother had told me it was nice but I did not expect to enjoy it so much! People always think that Paris has the best of French culture to offer, but in reality the FOOD in Lyon is in a whole other league!
Three words to describe the weekend: Eat. Drink. Sun.
We went out a whole lot since it was Lauren's 21st birthday, celebrations started before taking the train by drinking a bottle of bubbly at school. We went to an Australian themed club on a péniche, a club that has stock-market like fluctuating drink prices, an irish pub and a Bostom themed club. Hmmm I just realized how French people seem to love "exotic" themed drinking dens...
The weather was beautiful so we planned the weekend to have one day of visits and one day lounging by the pool... it was fabulous. Add 2 nights of going out until 4 am and you have a great weekend.

Here is a nice little video made by the good folks at Wallpaper magazine (yes I am obcessed with them) about the Salone del Mobile, you can see part of the Wallpaper Handmade exhibit at Brioni that I saw. I think I might have a small crush on editor in chief Tony Chambers....
