Just back from the huge success which is the Artist Rebel Dandy show curated by Kate Irvin and Laurie Anne Brewer at the Rhode Island School of Design museum.
Artist Rebel Dandy is the mecca for anyone interested in the history of mens dress and style, I cannot eulogise enough about what a fabulous exhibition Kate and Laurie have put together. Dashing Tweeds is in splendid company with treasure such as Prince Regents checked suits and gowns, Fred Astaire's tails, Oscar Wildes shirts, Malcom Maclaren's bondage jacket and outfits straight of the backs of currrent dandies including Patrick McDonald and John Waters.
Of course every exquisite exhibition needs a equally splendid gala opening and this was no exception. A plumage of New York dandies attended the evening including the most amusing Hamish Bowles, Andre Leon Tally, Poggy, Ignacio Quiles, Nathaniel Adams and Derrick Miller to name a few.
A magnificent dinner party after the open in one of Providences finest buildings - the old library
Then on Sunday we where delighted to attend Providence's first every tweed bike ride. A mobile cocktail party with a dazzling turnout. The most dashing amongst the crowd were awarded with Dashing caps.
