"Camp" Arrives at New York City's The Met

May 10, 2019

When the first Monday in May rolls around, all eyes in the fashion world look to The Met. That is when New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts its fundraising gala for its Costume Institute. The gala's theme coincides with that year's fashion exhibit, which runs for a limited time. This year, the theme is "Notes on 'Camp'". Here's a brief description of that theme, courtesy of The Met.

"Through more than 250 objects dating from the seventeenth century to the present, The Costume Institute's spring 2019 exhibition will explore the origins of camp's exuberant aesthetic. Susan Sontag's 1964 essay 'Notes on 'Camp'' provides the framework for the exhibition, which examines how the elements of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality and exaggeration are expressed in fashion."

When I first decided to write a post about this year's Met theme, I initially wanted to share some fashion from the gala. Although there were a few stand out pieces, what seemed to draw me in more were the pieces that are included in the actual exhibit. In turn, I wanted to share some of those images with you, courtesy of The Met.

This exhibit, "Notes on 'Camp'", is a way to show how fashion can and does have fun with itself. Many of us in the industry take what we do very seriously, although, it's always good to inject a little irony or humor into it every now and then too. So,  let's all have fun with fashion with this exhibit. I'm looking forward to seeing the designs in person and how the camp theme is brought to life.

"Notes on 'Camp'" runs through September 8, 2019, at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art. For more information, visit metmuseum.org.

From Bartender to Congresswoman

April 09, 2020

There are times when life throws you a curveball that’s so unbelievable you can barely believe it. This is what happened to a career politician by the name of Joseph Crowley in November 2018 when he was voted out of office. A 28-year-old female bartender named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who received 57% of the vote – suddenly became the youngest woman to serve in the United States Congress.

“Reporters Ultimately Don’t Stop”

This is first time I’ve focused intensely and in-depth on a male for Adea. However, I truly believe the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Ronan Farrow deserves this salute. In a nutshell, his article in The New Yorker was so sensational that it changed the course of history in America, and perhaps the world, by kicking off the incredible #MeToo movement.

Now, according to an article I read in Bazaar’s January 2020 edition, Musk is the oldest star ever to appear in a CoverGirl ad campaign. She looks 20 years younger than she is – in other words: absolutely terrific.  Her incredible life story is now being told in a book titled “A Woman Makes a Plan” with startling photos from the family vault.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
