KiptonART was honored to attend our last show of the evening, Chado Ralph Rucci. Rather than being held in the oversized tent at Bryant Park, Mr. Rucci opted for his own private showroom in Soho. Upon entering the elegant space you truly felt you were among top Chado supporters. Those in attendance included longtime lovers of the master American designer Martha Stewart, Whoopi Goldberg, Patti Smith, David Patrick Columbia, Meredith Melling Burke, Fran Lebowitz, Andre Leon Talley and famed New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham as well as fresh young faces involved in internet blogging but devotees just the same. After the show KiptonART learned the reason for the intimate venue choice was to ensure that all who attended could observe the quality details in each garment, which amassed to a brilliantly cohesive collection of 61 pieces: Bravo!
