Twinkle Spring 2008 at Bryant Park

A couple weeks ago, a golden ticket came in the mail...



I felt like the luckiest knitter in the world! It was so exciting to attend a show at Bryant Park, even if I had to stand in line for half an hour and then pack myself in next to the photographers and get up on my tiptoes to see the runway over their heads. Waiting in line inside the tent was so entertaining: the best people-watching experience, ever! It was a neverending parade of fashion superstars and visionaries, fashion clowns, fashion victims, etc.

And the show itself was fantastic. Not as many knits as I expected, mostly printed silk dresses and flowy tops. Here's my shot of the final runway parade:




And Wenlan coming out to take a quick bow:





Since I couldn't get a decent photo, here's one from getty of a great knitted vest from the collection:


Other than the vest, I could only spot one more knitted piece, which was a white dress that I wasn't too crazy about. Her fun, colorful and quirky prints really made up for my dissapointment in the quantity of knitted pieces. It was really exciting to be there- thanks for the invite, Wenlan!


**Update** for those who have asked, I got the invite through my job at coclico, and will be selling some twinkle clothing, jewelry, and belts in the shop next spring.

Lucky you! Sounds like you had a really good time. The gauge on that vest is itsy-bitsy compared to what's in Big City Knits!

Wow. How completely awesome that you got to go! Thanks for sharing it with us. Love that vest (even with the bobbles) and the pattern on her backdrop. I need to work more glitzy art deco-ness into my life.
