The Art of Bob Mackie

This week I had the pleasure of attending The Art of Bob Mackie Event.
I’ve been in love with Bob Mackie for years and have a dress of his that is my favorite.
Bob Mackie is a legendary fashion and costume designer who just launched the first series of his fashion and costume illustrations. 
The illustrations are all so unique and inspiring.

 This was my outfit for the event. I think it was very fitting. I attended with a few members from the
NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group. We had a great time learning more about Bob Mackie and getting to see all his illustrations up close and personal.

Dress: Forever 21
Hat: Forever 21
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Fords

 This whole event was amazing it even better we got to sign up to receive our very own illustration.
Check out Bob Mackie Facebook Fanpage to see more of the illustrations and the
The first series of reproductions consist of 46 illustrations, which are available in two sizes 
14 x 17 ($69 and 21 x25 $179) and are sold  matted and framed.
The event was sponsored by Pop Chips which were delicious and Izze Sparkling Juice.

Check out the sites and let me know which illustration is your favorite! I choose Belle of the Ball #2..can you guess why???

    I had never heard of him before. It is nice that you had the opportunity to attend one of his events. Once again, you are dressed to kill. Why did GQ let us down when we are the fashion capital of the US? Anyways, as always, great post. I should join your blogger meet up group.

    LUCKY duck! I heard about his new illustration publication and was so excited to see it. I really love his work and fashion illustrations in general. I enjoy the expressions that he gives the models.

    You look divine in hot pink!

    What a great event. It is always wonderous to see a designer’s sketches and in the case of Bob Mackie, it is a theatrical event. Your dress is fabulous!
