Artist Joy Malin on FW's Friday:5ive

 Our sweet neighbor, Joy Malin, is an artist who most recently has discovered her amazing talent for animal portraits. We've seen her over the years, taking canvases of gorgeous florals or figures in and out of the building, sending off her masterpieces in the back of her clients' cars, conducting art classes in the park and in her apartment.

We mostly see her walking her amazing little guy, Charlies, the cutest little Yorkie you'd ever want to meet, around Tompkins Square Park. Joy and Charlie always have an ebullient hello for Mignon.

Loup Charmant fashion shoot behind the scenes

After having to reschedule the production several times due to weather and then model and photog availability, Wednesday's location shoot for Loup Charmant's website mood pix found us at Ft. Tilden and Rockaway beaches on the most beautiful day. Seriously. There couldn't have been a more gorgeous day. And styling with this professional and talented crew couldn't have been more enjoyable. Loved the opportunity to work with photographer Jonathan Bookallil, makeup artist Yuko Mizuno (both with Rona Represents), hair stylist Gloria Espinoza (for the second time!), Jonathan's right and left hand men Andrew and Will, LC assistant Quinne Meyers and, of course, the inimitabdes creative converter, Kee Edwards, designer & founder of Loup Charmant.

In between styling, I snapped a few behind the scene shots. Hope you enjoy!

Backstage, after the show, Seco spoke of

Gant by Michael Bastian SS13

Two of the Jonas brothers stopped by the packed Gant by Michael Bastian presentation at Industria Wednesday afternoon. And if they were in search of wearable clothes worthy of an exploratory trip through far-flung locales -- or even wild city streets -- they certainly found them here.

To paraphrase Rick Nelson, I went to a garden party...there was magic in the air.
