On Thursday, August 28th, Inseparable: The Soundwall Experience held its closing reception at Gallery 151. The music-inspired group art show featured works by Ricky Aiello, Joseph Arthur and Spencer Tunick, Mia Berg, Jordan Doner, Walker Fee, Fab 5 Freddy, Elliot Goldstein, Bradley Theodore, Justin Jay, Matt Jones, Derek Reist, Carrie Mae Rose, Allan Tannenbaum (courtesy of Rock Paper Photo), and Jay West. Guests enjoyed specialty cocktails from BYEJOE and music and DJ set by BC Kingdom as they took in the unique pieces. Laura O’Reilly of Wallplay (who co-curated the exhibition along with Gallery 151 founder Michael Namer), then introduced Carrie Mae Rose who spoke about her space-inspired piece in the gallery. Jay West was also on hand to tell the story behind his painting, “Yellow Yield or Kneel.” He explained why he chose Mozart's “Lacrimosa” to accompany it, and what his piece means to him.

Fashion week is back in NYC, and after a relaxing summer designers and magazines are ready to kick off fall in a big way. The fashion crowd will once again host parties at some of the best venues in New York, while also determining which of the new crop of restaurants, bars, and hotels will have them coming back all season. While we still expect a few surprises along the way, we've put together our list of the top venues of the week where you can be sure to run into industry A-listers.

I have a confession to make: last year, I ended up in the emergency room because I did NOT survive fashion week. How I got there I’ll get into some other time (as in you can ask me privately one day over a Negroni.) It was not pretty and yes, it was in complete relation to malnourishment and burning the candle at both ends. What started off as a fun week gallivanting from shows, to blogger lounges, to parties – all while trying to cram in a little thing called “work”– ended up in complete and utter disaster, and has had me fearing fashion week ever since. This happened not because it was my first fashion week, but because I wasn't prepared. So here I am, giving you one full day to prepare to take care of your body (they say it’s a temple). And because I don’t want you to end up in the hospital, I have decided to put together the dos and don’ts of surviving fashion week (or month for the fashion folk that probably have their doctor on speed dial).
With New York Fashion Week kicking off, it's one of the busiest times of the year for people in the creative industry. Nonetheless, we're looking forward to spending a few nights off to take in a good show. The offerings in NYC this month are pretty incredible, and even if you skip the chaos of Fashion Week, you're bound to find the high-profile guests at one of these concerts. From the anticipated return of Interpol to the Jay-Z headed Global Citizens Festival, these are the can't-miss concerts of September!
