New York City, one of the most populous cities in the world, exerts a significant impact upon culture, finance, commerce, entertainment, technology, art, and fashion. It was a great pleasure to journey here in summertime, endless interesting places to visit, lots of entertaining events, festivals, activities and more.
We took the chance to engage the most anticipating and inspiring annual exhibition in the fashion world, the Costume Institute exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the theme of this year is called Heavenly Bodies - a dialogue between fashion and medieval art to examine fashion's ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism.
Throughout the galleries, you will find papal vestments shipped from the Vatican, religious artworks and couture pieces from the early twentieth century to contemporary haute-couture and ready-to-wear designs, including original pieces from Gianni Versace and Cristobal Balenciaga featuring Catholic iconography, also the most influential designers and fashion houses in the world: Chanel, Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin, Christian Lacroix and Alexander McQueen.
Magical night views in Manhattan
New York is so fascinating, one of the reasons is its ethnic and cultural diversity and vibrant mix of world influences, with immigrants making up the majority of the residents in some neighborhoods, all five boroughs illustrate this melting pot through music, activities, shops and restaurants, and the most appealing part for us was being able to sample exotic cuisine and products!
Another exciting event that we attended was Macy's 4th of July fireworks. We decided to watch the show from Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City where we could have a panoramic view of the captivating Manhattan skyline. The venue was totally packed hours before the show started, but the overwhelming fireworks display was absolutely worth it!
Despite all the fun and pleasure, the main reason to travel to NYC is to visit AIMEEKU stockist in SoHo - Dreams On Air, such an adorned boutique store with vivacious representatives and acclaimed designer brands which is located on the absolute prime block with Chanel and Balmain luxury fashion shops.
Our last day in NYC happened to be Manhattanhenge which is a circumstance that occurs twice a year, during which the setting sun or the rising sun aligns perfectly with New York City’s street grid, creating a glow of light across Manhattan's brick and steel canyons. It's a pity that it was a cloudy evening, so we didn't capture a radiant sunlight, but still a beautiful memorable moment!
