Cynthia Rowley at the MFA

Another week, another great event at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.  Last night I had the pleasure of taking part in putting on an MFA Fashion Council event featuring designer Cynthia Rowley!  Cynthia showed pieces from her line and did an informal interview with our curator Pam Parmal.  It was a nice, intimate setting and a great time was had by all.  I especially love that Cynthia's inspiration for some of the pieces was an historic textile by Sonia Delaunay, who is currently the topic of a show at the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum.

I also got to meet Cynthia's lovely Director of Public Relations, Elyssa Dimant, who is quite accomplished in her own right.  I'm very much looking forward to getting a copy of her book, Minimalism and Fashion.  Not to mention she is the only 6 months pregnant woman I've ever met who could stylishly pull off wearing a leather sheath dress and 4 inch platform heels.  Very impressive.
