Rodarte Took Flowers to the Next Level for Their Haute Couture Show - Allure MagazineTuesday, July 18, 2017
When it comes to their fashion shows, Rodarte is always a highlight during New York Fashion Week. Designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy are known for not only their gorgeous clothes, but also encouraging strong beauty looks and creating unique sets. So when the sisters decided to skip NYFW this past season and show a couture collection in Paris instead, it was business as usual. The show took place in the garden of an old abbey on the West Bank in Paris. And while the flowers lining the runway were beautiful, it was the blooms on the models heads and fingers that had me swooning. And yes, I did just type "fingers.'The beauty look started with the nails — something you don't often hear backstage at a fashion show. "They sent me pictures of daisies, so I knew I wanted something really sheer on the fingernails, so I used the Morgan Taylor Sugar Fix polish, which has a nice texture to it and a pretty pinky opalescence," said nail artist Tracylee. To do something a little outside of the box, Tracylee then painted tiny daisies on the fingers of each hand using white n... http://www.allure.com/story/rodarte-haute-couture-spring-2018-nails

Fifty Years After Newark Burned, Gates Tell Story of Changing Landscape - TAPinto.netTuesday, July 18, 2017
The faith we have in ourselves and our community tends to grow. Therefore, I have no gates. And I’m not going anywhere.”A New York City native, Rozier is no refugee from his homeland. Instead, he sees himself as a part of a movement.“Why not Newark?” Rozier said, referring to developers such as Ron Beit, the force behind Teachers Village, and others who encouraged him to come to New Jersey’s largest city. Rozier lives in Teachers Village with his family. “The drive behind what is here now is socioeconomic, not racial. As long as law enforcement is policing crime, not people, Halsey Street can be like Manhattan or Brooklyn. There has to be a continuing flow of new blood and energy from all over country, even the world.” Phillips wants those bars off, but doesn't want the lifting of Newark’s post-1967 physical and burden to mean the loss of what kept the city alive during its decades-ling time of trial.“Old Newark can’t die, it's the backbone of the community. But I need a bigger demographic of customers, not just the national orders we get,” said Phillips. “I need more people to come in to my store who are part of the fabric of the community, not just people from outside.”“The question now is this – is this revitalization or gentrification?” Phillips said. “I think it’s revitalization because there is opportunity for those who have been here to remain here.” The fear of gentrification prompted Mayor Ras Baraka to propose an ordinance that will require a sizeable percentage of affordable housing to be included in new residential developments. The City Council rejected the ordinance earlier this week, though it remains on the table for further consideration. The upscale Whole Foods that opened in the Hahne’s building is perhaps the most obvious symbol of a gentrifying city. Prudential’s impact investment fund helped fuel the renovation of the Hahne’s building, which includes an art gallery, a bookstore and new market-rate and affordable apartments. Sathe, whose job at Prudential is to help shape the stream of financial capital flowing into Newark, said it is the refurbishment of Newark’s smaller buildings that play just as an important role in transforming the city’s terrain. “The new properties are intentionally not being designed for commuters from elsewhere, but for residents who walk to them,” Sathe said. “These are not just best practices in urban design, but come ultimately from a belief in Newark’s potential. It’s not a defensive posture. It’s optimistic.”Transforming Newark has its challenges.“Downtown Newark was never a residential downtown. It was a commercial and retail center. You have to figure out a way to bring these large buildings back to function in a different way,” said Sathe, a Harvard-trained real estate and land use attorney.“Progress goes from nothing to all of a sudden, you open a massive building. A lot of land was utilized for institutional use. Parking lots, which are so valuable, are in some ways being mothballed for growth 20 to 30 years from now, but hurts the short run,” Sathe said. “If you look at a map of Newark in 1945, there were a lot more streets. From an urban design perspective, you want as many streets and as many blocks as you can. “McGovern’s Tavern is another Newark institution that refused to leave...
The Ann Arbor Art Fair Features Four Separate Festivals - The Jewish NewsTuesday, July 18, 2017
Naphtali, who works out of a Brooklyn studio. “I like coloring my own materials, and I don’t have to use toxic materials with the shells. I also like the idea of renewables.”Naphtali, who grew up in New York and Tel Aviv, moved around as the result of her dad’s work in chemical engineering. He earned his master’s and doctorate degrees at the University of Michigan.“I try to keep my jewelry very lightweight so it’s comfortable,” says Naphtali, who tracked down where her dad lived in the 1950s and showed her son. “Pieces are in museum shops all across the country.”Naphtali, who comes from a long line of metalsmiths on her father’s side, is related to Israeli wholesale jewelers on her mother’s side.While living in New York, she took classes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She went on to the Fashion Institute of Technology and the State University of New York at New Paltz.“I’ll have close to a couple hundred pieces in Ann Arbor,” she says. “I have a wide price range.”Lisa Burge, also in the Original art fair, shows abstract oil paintings and prints. Based in New Mexico, she is in her 15th year showcasing work in Ann Arbor.“I use muted colors, but my images have grown brighter over the years,” she says. “I am inspired by nature, architecture and what I’ve seen in travels around the world.”Interested in art all her life, Burge has studied at universities in Colorado and New Mexico. She grew up in Denver, has lived in Tawas for 36 years and uses a second studio in Kansas City because of all the traveling she does.“I do 12-14 fairs a year,” says Burge, who does not bring her Reform Jewish background into her projects. She works with acrylics and oil paints on canvas to come up with paintings.“I like talking to people at the fairs and the camaraderie with the artists on the road,” she explains. “I love the traveling and drive my work in a van. I feel it’s an honor to be accepted into the fairs.”Those who know Hebrew can read Aaron Miller’s first name on a necklace he wears although he does not identify as Jewish. The necklace is in recognition of Jewish heritage and family members who invite him to share religious celebrations.Miller, who lives in Beverly Hills and works out of a Detroit studio, looks forward through his art, which is digital. His projects range from large murals to decorative skateboards and T-shirts.“I take little bits from photos and combine them into large pieces,” he explains. “I studied business at Wayne State University and taught myself this kind of art. When I was young, I wanted to be a painter, but there are advantages, like being quick, with digital.”Miller, who will be experiencing his first year in Ann Arbor at the State Street Art Fair, has been doing custom work. For example, he has designed murals for Farbman Group offices.“I’ll be showing all kinds of art at the fair,” says Miller, who regularly can be accessed through the Rust Belt Market in Ferndale. “I’ll have Detroit and Michigan themes as well as surreal subjects.”detailsThe Ann Arbor Art Fair, which includes four fairs in one, runs July 20-23 throughout the city.For complete information, visit theannarbortartfair.com.A Shabbat scene by ...
