A gift for the fashionista

Exhibit photo by Max Yawney

Every true fashionista loves a good cat walk.
This weekend at the Peabody Essex Museum there will be plenty of runway-type activities that will revolve around Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel exhibit that is showing now through February 7, 2010. A day of fashion reverie is the perfect gift for the stylish on your list and includes design direction from the fabulously-fashionable Iris herself along with opportunities to dress like an icon, draw like a designer, and shop like a trend-setter.

Don’t miss the show ... call early to reserve your spot!

With scheduled appearances from Stilista stylists, presentations by Boston Fashion Week founder Jay Calderin with School of Fashion Design artists, panel discussions on today’s top fashion trends, and even a short film featuring Isaac Mizrahi, this is the weekend to be seen at the PEM.
So grab that friend or family member who strives for a well-curated closet, get dolled-up, and head to Peabody (just north of Boston) for a pre-holiday celebration of fashion (and just in time to get tips on what-to-wear for those upcoming holiday parties and events!)

This design guide, which would look divine
perched on an oh-so-stylish coffee table, is
