André Leon Talley has teamed with Tom Ford, the man whom he calls “Mr. Midas” for his many talents, on a “boundary-crashing” March issue of Numéro Russia that hits newsstands Friday.
Ford photographed Pat Cleveland and South African model Conrad Bromfield for the cover and for a fashion story that runs over 14 pages and shows the two models larking around in looks from Ford’s spring women’s collection. For More
Nick Cave is an American fabric sculpture, dancer and performance artist.
He first gained widespread recognition for his “Soundsuits”: full-body outfits crafted from discarded objects found in antique shops and flea markets. Part sculpture, part costume, the complex, kaleidoscopically colorful works of art can be displayed as objects, and also often feature in solo and group movement performances. They are the kind of artistic hybrids that could only be created by an artist such as Cave, who trained as a dancer through the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York and now directs the fashion graduate program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
The Chicago-based artist currently has an exhibition at The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston. The exhibition will be on view through May 4.

American inventor George Eastman introduced the second Kodak camera ever made in 1888, with the slogan, “You Press the Button, We Do the Rest”. This was the birth of snapshot photography, as millions of amateur picture-takers know it today - It was a small, leather-covered wooden box that was priced at $25 (around $600 today) with a capacity to hold enough film for 100 photographs. The entire camera was returned to the factory for the film to be developed and printed.
