If I was asked to describe Susanne Bartsch in one word it would be “enduring.” The woman has been on the New York nightlife scene longer than I’ve been alive. And she is still killing it. If this show (featuring 100’s of her outfits from the 1980’s to today) is anything to go by Susanne Bartsch has a wardrobe the size of the World Trade Center, and nothing in there is remotely boring. The show’s curator Valerie Steele had this to say about Susanne’s closet to the website Racked: “In the 80s and early 90s, there was a lot of this kind of excess of fashion, but it sort of disappeared. But Susanne is still waving the freak flag for that sort of thing, and I think a lot of people miss that...It’s a nice moment to remind people that there’s other aspects of fashion.” Yesss honey, it’s time the kids of NYC stepped up their game. Life’s too short to be dressed in all black, find some feathers and a bejeweled corset and a lime green alien jumpsuit and have some fun. It’s fashion, not brain surgery. Fashion Underground is on now until Dec 5th at FIT. Don’t miss it darrrrrrling!
The artist's latest show 'A Room of One’s Own' is now on view at Daniel Cooney Fine Art in NYC
We’ve been fans of the artist Richard Haines’ work way before he got famous in the fashion industry — Seriously, he’s been on our radar long before he started drawing for the New York Times’ T magazine, and collaborating on T-shirts with Prada. We even posed naked for him because we liked his drawings that much (hopefully we can find that drawing and we can get it as a gift for Christmas). We both have artwork by him on our walls, Richard has been a great supporter of our newsletter, he even covered one of our newsletters (letter No.115) with illustrations (I am so gonna print that newsletter and frame it now that I think of it!).
We did a feature in our printed publication (GAYLETTER Issue 2) about his process and more specifically about drawing naked Brooklyn boys. Basically I don’t need to read a press release about this new show to recommend it.
The show is titled ‘A Room of One’s Own’ and it’s opening on September 10th at 6:00PM at Daniel Cooney Fine Art gallery in Chelsea. I can assure you the it’s gonna be filled with boys he’s drawn, fashion kids, friendly faces and lots of great art on the walls.
Here’s a preview of the show:
FREE, 6:00PM-8:00PM, Daniel Cooney Fine Art, 508-526 West 26th St. …
