Fall Fashion Ritual

This year looked as if stripes and plaids, with black booties were in. What do I know? Just that skulking around Lincoln Center during Fashion Week provides me with a drawing day almost unparalleled with opportunity. Designers, models, model wanna be-s, the famous, infamous, paparazzi, seekers of fame and the people- like me, just happy to be in and around one of the hottest tickets in town come Fall.

Melanie, these are just fabulous!!!! I've come back four times to look. My favorite has to be the long limbs with the big booty! You perfectly captured the flavor of fashion week!

Melanie, I just love your sketches. They make me smile. You've got the poses and the 'tudes down pat. Each character you draw is more fun than the next. Awesome sketches!!!

Susan, Mark, and I were near FIT today and stopped by to see if you were around. Sorry you weren't.

Another sketchbookskool student. You are an amazing, generous teacher. Can't thank you enough. I like seeing that you can make a complex, satisfying composition without backgrounds.
