{I N S P I R E D} Designing Women: Open May 1-26 by Eileen Boyd

I can't tell you how consistently inspired I am by my creative peers who challenge me to dig deeper and design fearlessly everyday. And the latest collaborative exhibition of all-women design rockstars has me so excited to spread positive vibes and girl pride! 

The women of Egg Collective have come together to host a benefit expressing true girl power through the varied works of female artists and designers. The girl trio behind Egg Collective has always been focused on female empowerment, collaboration, and camaraderie. And, in that vein, they had the genius idea of putting together a show that unites the top female designers and artists operating in NYC to support the Girls, INC NYC foundation, which empowers young women to be our future leaders. The show is called Designing Women and is currently on display through May 26th at Egg Collectives Hudson Street Showroom.

Bravo ladies! This is one spectacular show!

A few weeks ago, Beth and I went into the city to meet with a client. We were walking down Broome Street in Soho and just as we were about to pass by Tomorrowland, a beautiful art display caught my attention and we just had to go inside to see it. It turns out the uber-cool Japanese boutique had taken its collection of scarves and artfully suspended them in frames as an art installation. I'm constantly inspired by fashion and the intersection of design in all forms, and seeing these silky, wearable works of art were no exception. Not to mention the great design books, sartorial eye candy and chic jewelry all housed in a really fun space. My creative wheels have been turning ever since!

Walking into Mish's 30 Bond Street studio in NYC isn't like shopping for jewelry at just any jewelry boutique. It's an unforgettable experience that speaks to all of the senses. Beth and I paid a visit to Mish a few weeks ago on a trip into the city—the purple door and green facade called to us immediately of course. (With the fashionable charm and historic architecture outside, you'd think you were on Bond Street in London.) Once we stepped inside, the feast for the eyes continued, from the hand-painted malachite mural, to the upholstered walls with nailhead trim, to the jewels themselves, all on display like pieces in a museum. Made with South Sea pearls and precious stones, Mish Tworkowski's fancy and whimsical baubles, bracelets, brooches and more will stop you in your tracks. See for yourself!
