Throughout the month of June, in celebration of LGBT PRIDE, The Bloomingdale's flagship store in New York City honored The Stonewall Pride Collection. Designers who have made bold contributions to the fashion community were asked to lend their most iconic pieces. Two Bob Mackie masterpieces stand tall and proudly along the designs of Chris March and Ali Rahimi for Mon Atelier. The Stonewall Pride Collection honors those who have greatly contributed to bringing a sense of beauty and glamour to film, television, concerts, and the red carpet.
During Pride Month, it is fitting to present these creations so everyone can enjoy them up close. Two of the featured Bob Mackie pieces were worn by non other than Pop icon, Cher during her show in Caesar's Palace Las Vegas in 2010. One is a striped purple "zoot suit" with a matching wildly plumed hat and an intricately beaded head piece that served as "wig" for her performance. The other Cher piece is a navy beaded gown with an elaborate blue flower along the side, a matching head piece, and long gloves which she not only wore at Caesar's but in a Vanity Fair photoshoot as well.
The Bob Mackie pieces will be on display on the 3rd floor of Bloomingdale's on 59th street in New York City until June 30th.
We loved looking at Bob's intricate work up close. Have you seen it? What do you think?
