Behind the Scenes of the International Show


 For the next several days, I will be blogging New York's glamorous International Show.  I hope you'll join me here.

Tonight is the International Show's preview benefit party before the official opening Friday morning. Plenty of satin, sequins, and stones will be strolling through the aisles at what is one of the premiere society events of the Fall. (Click here for ticket information.)

But just a mere 24 hours before, the Armory was a construction zone, with carpeting still being rolled out over the worn wood floor boards, dealers standing on 12 ft ladders to perfect their lighting, and others taking a break after a long day of unpacking, installing, and refining.
