NYFW Day 4
On the final day of my trip, I had one goal: shop at quite possibly the awesomest fabric store on the planet, Mood. Made famous by the Project Runway designers' frantic, frazzled treks before each challenge, the web site boasts that 1200 people come through the store each day. Now that I've been to Mood, I have a new appreciation for the designers able to find the "perfect" fabric and embellishments in under 30 minutes (and extra empathy for the designers who wind up with unfortunate fabric choices). There are multiple levels, and sooooo many beautiful fabrics! I planned to buy fabric at Mood and make myself a special dress, but there was simply not enough time. Instead, I bought a white and pink "Thank You, Mood" tee and some playful trims for an upcoming sewing project.
