Not only did I miss the friends and family opening on September 19th, the day of my stroke, I also missed the sponsor's party on September 24th, my second last day in hospital. However, Ludwig arranged for a small group of visitors to visit me in my room at St Vincent's while the party was in progress. After my first shower in a week and free of hospital gown and IV drip plumbing, it was joy to welcome them - especially Mary McFadden who is a dear and loyal old friend from our days in Johannesburg.
Meanwhile back at Milk, a few blocks away...

My Book FASHION ETECETERA was launched with the current exhibition at Milk Gallery in New York. Milk Gallery is at 450 W 15th Street New York and runs until October 29th, 2009 (a three day extension over our the previous closing day). The project is a partnership with the Tommy Hilfiger group who have exclusive 3rd party rights to market, distribute and sell a special edition of the book and are sole sponsors of the exhibition.
For clarification of the two editions of FASHION ETCETERA please see the 'Two Editions' post on this blog.
