This past Wednesday I was invited to The Art of Bob Mackie event here in NYC. I actually braved the 104 degree weather and went in to the city for the event. I was so excited to be invited that I couldn't stop telling everyone that I was going. Growing up knowing the designs of Bob Mackie most famously the dresses that Cher wore to the Oscars and the Bob Mackie Barbie dolls that a few friends had.
Bob Mackie has designed costumes for theater productions, Cher and her Vegas shoes at the Ceaser's Palace in 2008, the Carol Burnette Show, to the singer Pink's costume for her Fun House tour. He has received Emmy awards for his costume work as well as Oscar nominations. He continues his work still designing clothes working with QVC and now since 1998 has started a successful home furnishing division.
To those of us who were invited to the event we introduced to the prints that will be sold through his website and through his facebook fan page page. The prints included pieces like the Pink Showgirls, Clowns, Broadway's Gypsy, Broadway's Comedy "Moon Over Buffalo", Carmen and her Troupe, the Las Vegas Production "Halleluja Hollywood", Belle of the Ball, Puttin on the Ritz, Urban Safari, Cocktail Hour, Kitty Kat Club ( cat prints based on his own cats), and the Roaring Twenties. We also got to choose a 14x17 piece of our liking that will be fully framed.

Sorry for the crappy pic, forgot my camera and this hallway was nothing but gold and bronze lighting. The glowing thing is my bag that has a reflective strip on it.
