I had my first showing of The Kouklitas at the end of Fashion Week in New York last month, and lots of wonderful things have happened since then. I've been laid off from my job (I'm probably the only happy person about this given the state of our economy.) Which means I can work full time on the dolls while collecting unemployment--and looking for another job of course (cough, cough.)
Blushing Muslin was staged at Red Flower, a small shop on Prince Street between Elizabeth and Bowery that sells a line of high end bath, beauty, and home products made from the most wonderfully organic variety of flowers and scents. The booze was flowing, music was playing, and about 70 people came in and out the doors over the course of the evening. It was a wonderful crowd, and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks friends! The next show will be bigger and better. Stay tuned for more news from the Kouklitas.
There were thirteen dolls on display, some you may have seen and some who were finished hours before the doors opened. The gallery was up through Mid-march. I have since brought all the dolls back to my apartment with the exception of the few that were sold, and although the girls are glad to be home, I have to prepare them for another trip -- To Henri Bendel's!
