Kink Ink and 40 WiNKS have collaborated to bring a seductive evening of art. Attendees will be handed a pen and paper and taken back to an 18th century aristocratic ambiance to sketch tantalizing temptresses. This new entertaining concept of life drawing class is mixed with theatre and set to a soundtrack by the composer, Daniel Pemberton. The first class will take place on Wednesday 2nd of September and the second, Wednesday the 14th of October 2009. For further information contact 40 WiNKS and be sure to reserve your spot for this provocative life drawing experience.

Last night at Phillips de Pury by Kelli

We had a great time last night at the Phillips de Pury party! I met the fabulous Marc Newson (previous posts on Marc) – pictures of me and marc coming soon 🙂 I also really enjoyed all the fabulous historic pieces up for auction on April 30th.  Here are some of my favorites:

And the star of the show – also the most expensive – Marc Newson’s Lockheed Lounge

‘Lockheed Lounge’ by Marc Newson 1988 for Pod, Australia £500,000-700,000

NEW ROCOCO
Here at alacarterstyle we always like get you invites to the very best parties and events… this week we are giving you the chance to attend the opening of Rita Nowak’s new show in Vienna. Rita is a dear friend of mine and a very talented artist, so pop down to Sotheby’s (the Vienna branch!!) this Thursday evening for the exclusive private view. Rita has asked me to say that you will only be admitted if you wear “light” colours… Why, I have no idea, but it’s her party. Enjoy!!

David had luminous chandelier ‘couturier’ Eva Menz around for a drink last night. Eva is an established star in the glittering world of bespoke (custom for my American readers) lighting, creating often innovative and breathtaking pieces in a range of unusual materials such as origami, pearl and even ice!!! Pieces range from £5,000 to £100,000. Eva has an outstanding portfolio that you must check out but here I picked my favorites to share. evamenze-copy

A LITTLE ‘AMELIE’ EXPERIENCE IN LONDON…

Anyone venturing down to Columbia Road this weekend in the hope of bumping into Kelli should spare a few minutes to climb the tiny staircase just next to ‘Marcos and Trump’ at no. 146. Here you will discover the work of artist Jessie Chorley… Her shop may be the size of a broom cupboard, but it is brimming over with the strange, the curious and the evocative. Think ‘Amelie’… If the film was set here in London, this is probably where she would be hanging out on a Sunday afternoon!! Let me know if you agree..

Any one lucky enough to be in Milan later this week should head off to the Madina Gallery to see the work of Sofia Cacciapaglia. I absolutely love her work, and am sure you will too!!
If pictures of fabulous dancing naked ladies aren’t your cup of tea, Madina are also showcasing the work of cool knitwear designer, Giulia Zoppas. Check out her collection at www.jemenfous.it.
Fashion and fine art… my kind of event!
The private view is on Thursday evening.. so don’t miss it!!
