JoAnn Berman Electric on The Runway


Photos by Nina Berman

The JoAnn Berman “Thunderbirds” show was a standing ovation event at The Green Shows (held at The Green House in the LES), during Fashion Week. In attendance were WWD, Vogue, Marie Claire, and Seventeen, as well as model/designer Nicole Murphy (former wife of Eddie Murphy) who had her picture taken with Ms. Berman. She used the Aretha Franklin song Rock Steady to open the show, and proved to be rock steady as model after model flew down the runway to applause. She incorporated her quasi hip hop  graffiti canvases into a montage of phantasmargorical colors and textures as if one were tripping away the night. She proves that the future of Green couture is a trick in her bag which never tires.  Pics after jump.  More > >

Sculptor Boaz Vaadia

In December 2009, Williamsburg sculptor Boaz Vaadia with assistants Dax Sommerfeld and Mark Porter, assembled the larger-than-life stone sculpture “David.” This was after many months of hand carving stone layers. The piece will be installed in its permanent home in Long Island, NY in spring 2010.

Music by Jazz Noir.
