    That was a good one! I understand the show has been a little watered down by the defection of Viktor and Rolf, but I enjoyed the chromatic arrangement. And the Yinka Shonibare figures on the ground floor, with their traditional batiked African fabrics meet Victorian corset order, are exquisite.

    Definitely also check out the Fashion of Architecture exhibition at the Center for Architecture. It’s not quite as pretty but it’s ten times as adventurous as “Colors…”!
