The Duchess Returns . . .

She knows it has been a while, but what can she say?  August was a terribly busy month, readers, almost as cruel as April (but much hotter).  The Duchess et al. engaged in very merry times (merci beaucoup to Messrs. H & B and our doctor friends back East), but now of course it is back to work and busy-ness as usual. 

Quite fortunately September has something more to offer us than blazing temperatures.  Today kicks off Fashion's Night Out 2011, the official start of Fashion Week in New York, which the Duchess will celebrate by creating her own wearable art at the Marimekko store at Crate & Barrel (Grove).

The Duchess is also extremely excited (a/k/a, losing sleep over) the upcoming Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) auction of the Richard Dorso collection.  In partnership with the ingenius art blog You Have Been Here Sometime, LAMA is producing a special interior showcase for Pacific Standard Time:  Art in L.A., 1945-1980Pacific Standard Time is a collaboration of more than 60 cultural institutions across Southern California coming together for the first time to celebrate the birth of the L.A. art scene.

                        The Home of Richard Dorso

The three week exhibit explores the collecting practices of Richard Dorso, a native Californian who died at the age of 101, leaving behind a vibrant modern art collection.  The exhibit closes with an auction of the Dorso collection on October 9, 2011--no reserve

Auction Preview and Exhibit opens September 19, 2011, daily from 10 am to 6 pm, at 16145 Hart Street, Van Nuys, California, 91406. 

See you there bunnies.
