Only now I had a chance to look back at some photos of Art-A-Porter; this amazing art project sponsored by Mac Cosmestics, Chashama and Susanne Bartsch. It was the second time around that Susanne brought this great event.
Amazing NY based artists gave their best shows and performances in two separate venues in Times Square. It was a explosion of art, style and hard core fashion. It all happened during New York Fashion Week and it lasted 5 days.
I felt very privileged to be included in the art installation that artist Scooter LaForge did for the opening day. It was so fun and crazy to be in that pool of balloons. Scooter was drawing monster faces on the balloons, and I was giving them away to everybody who wished to have one. Even Michael Alig together with Ernie Glam stopped by and both got balloons. The next morning they started their show The Pee-ew with the Scooter’s balloons.
