Dear Shaded Viewers,

I've been busy with work and holiday parties so am catching up on posts now. On December 6 my friends Sylvia Heisel and Scott Taylor provided an installation for the unveiling of Ralph Pucci's new mannequin style, LADY. Scott and Sylvia accented the Pucci Showroom with a cloudlike maze of giant balloons (6 to 9 feet tall) made from natural rubber. The installation perfectly complemented Ralph Pucci's new mannequin designs (the mannequins are made in New York City. Take THAT, China!) which were dressed in clothes by emerging designer Brandon Sun.
