Jennifer Love has just come back from New York - here are her suggestions for other surface designers planning to visit that wonderful city. If anyone has any other tips please email her (for the next time!).
Another must for all you sewers: http://www.purlsoho.com/purl/about
We went to the Met, the International Centre for Photography, MOMA, Cooper Hewitt Museum where there was a Sonia Delauney show focusing on her textile work (see image above of one of her bathing suits) and the Drawing Centre. Wandered into the Guggenheim just to admire the architecture but ran out of time to see any shows there.
Some fabulous clothes at this wonderful store - expensive mostly but some things affordable - great to look at for ideas: The Lilith Boutique is located in the heart of the NoLita district, just west of SoHo. 227 Mulberry St, (betw Prince and Spring), New York ; Hours: Monday - Saturday: 11am - 7pm; Sunday: 12pm - 7pm; Phone: 212.925.0080
Finally, if you get a chance, drop in to Dean and Deluca - http://www.deandeluca.com/ just for the experience - and perhaps to sample some of their wonderful food! Oh and speaking of food, the cafe in the American Folk Museum (just next to MOMA) is great. Try something that includes the cornmeal muffins!
