MET GALA 2021 WRAP-UP
Fashion's biggest night out came roaring back this year, canceled in 2020, and then only slightly postponed from its traditional May date. Nevertheless, the Met Gala, Metropolitan Museum of Art's signature True Fashionista event, returned this September, on a Monday at least, to the delight of all who appreciate fashion for the art that it truly is. How great is it that offerings from many designers who dressed this year's cavalcade of "It" peeps can be found at True Fashionistas, the best designer consignment store?
Fashion icon Iris Apfel has had a lifetime of making her True Fashionista mark on the fashion industry. Her flair has been felt in numerous arenas, including designing interiors of the finest homes around the world, via the textile manufacturing company she founded with husband Carl called Old World Weavers, an eye-catching approach to accessorizing that effortlessly combines modern pieces with flea market finds.
Ever since Guccio Gucci opened his first stores in Florence in 1921, the name Gucci has been associated in one way or another with quality and fashion.
