*** so happy to see this ensemble by my dear friend Richard Torry
If you haven’t had the chance to visit the exhibit Fashion Underground: The World of Susanne Bartsch, then you must do so; it is not only inspiring but overwhelming. There is so much style, fashion and love in this show featuring the exquisite wardrobe of the truly original Queen of the Night, who can indeed give a haute-couture feel and look to any party or event. There are about 100 ensembles signed by established high fashion designers or cult figures who have dressed Susanne Bartsch throughout these years. You can indeed take a close look at the wedding “gown” of Susanne, created by Thierry Mugler; indeed a legendary piece.
The opening night was extremely busy; from Calvin Klein to Norma Kamali, everywhere you turned you would see an iconic personality; Yes, that was RuPaul, yes, that was Stephen Jones, yes, that was Michael Costiff…
Scooter and I dressed up as “Fashion Underground Spies” to honor Susanne. It was indeed a special night.
The show runs till December 5th, and you should visit the FIT Museum site for the visiting hours
