Estée Lauder, Bobbi Brown, Trish McEvoy, Jo Malone, the Kardashians, Pat McGrath....the list goes on...are all familiar, extremely successful, innovative women in the beauty business. Make-up, skincare, and well-being have been with us through the centuries and are multi-billion dollar contributors to the international economy. That being said, if we look back to the early twentieth century, we would find a mostly male-dominated industry until two women changed all that...Elizabeth Arden and today’s subject, Helena Rubinstein.
THE FASHION MAP TURNS ONE! We are so humbled to be celebrating our 1st year. We would not have made it this far without the tremendous support of our fashion travel community.
We are celebrating our anniversary with a GIVEAWAY CONTEST! We are giving away a copy of the PIERRE CARDIN: FUTURE FASHION Catalogue that accompanied the Brooklyn Museum exhibition. Pierre Cardin: Future Fashion was the first New York retrospective in forty years to focus on the legendary couturier. Drawn primarily from Pierre Cardin’s archive, the exhibition traversed the designer’s decades-long career at the forefront of fashion invention. The exhibition presented over 170 objects drawn from his atelier and archive, including historical and contemporary haute couture, prêt-à-porter, trademark accessories, “couture” furniture, lighting, fashion sketches, personal photographs, and excerpts from television, documentaries, and feature films.
To be eligible to win, join our fashion and travel community and subscribe to our email newsletter. It's that simple! The winner will be announced on our IG Stories on January 19th at 12:00 pm CST. Good Luck!

FROM THE MCA:
The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA) presents Virgil Abloh: "Figures of Speech," the first-ever museum exhibition devoted to the work of the ultramodern, genre-bending artist and designer Virgil Abloh. Raised in Chicago by parents who emigrated from Ghana, Abloh was trained in engineering and architecture but cultivated an interest in music, fashion, and design.

I had the opportunity to attend the Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism exhibition at the Frist Art Museum in Nashville, Tennessee on opening day, May 24th, 2019. The photographs and paintings are from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection and the exhibition was curated by Trinita Kennedy. The exhibition was organized by the Vergel Foundation and MondoMostre in collaboration with the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes y Literatura (INBAL).
I had the pleasure of viewing the Chicago History Museum's current costume collection exhibition with a private curatorial tour hosted by Nena Ivon and led by curator Virginia Heaven. The tour was part of Retrospect Vintage Chicago's weekend from May 2 through May 5.
Retrospect Chicago was a 4-day weekend event featuring 50 of the country's top vintage fashion vendors.
