Isabel Toledo

Anyone who sew and/or love fashion knows who Isabel Toledo is.

Mrs Toledo is the Cuban-American designer that made the beautiful lemon green suit that the first lady of the United States wore on the Inauguration of her husband Barrack Obama.

Well, I read in "Vanidades" a Spanish fashion magazine (it's actually more than that) that FIT will open an exhibit dedicated to Isabel Toledo from June 6,2009 thru September 26,2009.

It's a must see if you are in the New York area. I will report back after I see the exhibit.

I think that calls for a trip to NYC. Thanks for the heads up, I've been meaning to get up that way soon anyway.

Alethia.- gracias por la información. Mira también esta página del KentState Museum. Se celebró hace tiempo una exposición de esta diseñadora, con maniquies hechos por su esposo. Espero que te guste.
