And the Winner Is…

Art and Fashion!

Veronica Popoiacu

We chose “Art in Fashion” because the creator did such a great job of integrating so many different elements from—from cheese and wine and a dress and shawl to a gilded mirror and contemporary art—all in the same chic color scheme and a really well presented tableau. Any time someone can wedge a David Hicks geometric print ottoman into the mix with that ikat pillow—AND an Elizabeth and James carnelian ring or Melissa Braniff Byzantine cuff, I’m all over it.

Still, we had a really hard time choosing a winner because there were so many really creative entries. I totally adored “Modern Gentleman in Spring.” It was a wonderful narrative even without the text (which I also adored), and bravo for hunting down those bits of color (to brighten up the gray skies) and the completely clever baseball cufflinks to underscore the spring theme. I wanted to grab an umbrella and go walking with this guy.

But everybody included elements we were drawn to (the orange, nude, and pink combo of “Taigan.com”; the fun items in “Bling Beach”) so again, it was tough choosing and we were totally impressed by the number of top-notch entries.

    Thanks for the honorable mention for ‘Modern Gentleman’, Julia! It was fun to put together. Guess I’ll have to keep saving for those boots, though… Cheers!
