Pamela Love began making jewelry in 2007 in a closet studio space in New York City’s garment district. She quickly won a CFDA award and her collection was soon stocked by boutiques around the world. Love’s creations are deeply spiritual and intuitive, influenced by astrology, alchemy, botany, and the materials and textures of the American Southwest. Her inspirations are steeped in folklore and she incorporates traditional tribal artisan patterns from North Africa, Mexican folk art, and medieval European iconography into her designs. In this personally curated monograph, Pamela Love: Muses and Manifestations, Love presents intricate still life compositions of her jewelry with objects and ephemera, juxtaposed with photographs from her collections and snapshots from her travels.

 

frida-1_1Frida Kahlo was not only an iconic artist but also a daring fashionista whose unique style continues to inspire and influence the worlds of fashion, media, and art today. Fashion is an optical effect that Kahlo employed with shrewd intelligence and artistic intention, and her original, multicultural aesthetic made her the center of attention wherever she went. Frida Kahlo: Fashion As The Art of Being is a vibrant tribute to Frida Kahlo’s bold character, style, art, and fashion and reflects the kaleidoscopic ways her unique story and personality have been interpreted and adapted as few others in our time.
