After spending six years in Asia featuring her underground fashions, Designer Grace Edwards returns to show case her latest and new collections of couture gowns, bow ties, cumberbunds and holiday accessories for a night out on the town.  

Grace has always designed for the avante garde and fashionistas of the world whether it be here in New York City, Hong Kong and Tokyo which happens to be her favorite city.

The event took place on December 13th, 7:00 to 10:00 pm at Pomona Lounge NYC right off of Fifth Avenue and 58th Street next to the Paris Movie Theater and steps away from the Plaza Hotel.

Haute bohemian, eclectic, eccentric and edgy sophistication

Grace Edwards, a Philippine born self-taught artist, and a New York resident since 2001, began her career creating one-of-a-kind avant-garde club wear in 2005. Thought of as an underground designer, she liked the idea of appealing to the nightlife crowds around the world. “My clothes are meant to move and flow while on a dance floor in New York, Manila, London, and Tokyo”. Grace’s philosophy is that ‘fashion design comes from the soul and is a natural reflection of one’s past experiences’.

In October of 2005, Grace was selected as a participant in the AOL Entrepreneur online reality series, “The Startup.” Her business, Grace Edwards New York, Inc. was one of three businesses chosen out of 2,000 candidates, and the only New York business spotlighted. “The Startup” chronicled a day in the life of three entrepreneurs during their first year of business. The segment featuring Edwards began filming on August 12th, 2005, in New York, and continued for 58 weeks. The program first aired online on November 1st, 2005.

After experiencing start-up success on the AOL on-line reality show, Grace opened her studio in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, and became the best well kept secret in town amongst New York society hipsters. Her clients included New York’s young celebrities and rock stars, underground artists/designers, and Wall Street moguls.

In February, 2012, Grace moved the entire contents of her studio in New York to Manila, Philippines, when she felt it was the right time to change scenery, believing that when you follow your heart and soul, success will always be around the corner.

In February, 2013, Grace is now ready to launch her new website and on-line-boutique!!

On June 1, 2018, Grace is back to New York City after 6 years of a very succesful venture in Tokyo, China and Manila. She will be launching her new on-line boutique!!

Long Islanders started their holiday season this year at the Vanderbilt Museum.

Each year, on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, the Vanderbilt holds its annual Tree Lighting in the courtyard of the Mansion.

This year the Tree Lighting ceremony took place on Saturday, November 24, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. This FREE, festive, family-friendly event featured carol singing with the Northport Chorale, a children’s ornament-making workshop, cookies and hot chocolate, and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.

The event was sponsored by Northwell Health.

William K. Vanderbilt II – known to family and friends as Willie K. – loved the oceans and the natural world. In his sea-going global travels, he collected fish and other marine life, birds, invertebrates and cultural artifacts for the personal museum he planned to build on his Long Island estate.

Willie Vanderbilt exhibited thousands of the marine specimens he had gathered – one of the world’s most extensive, privately assembled collections from the pre-atomic era – in his own marine museum, the Hall of Fishes, which he opened to the public in 1922. Wings of the mansion house galleries of his natural-history and cultural-artifact collections, and the Habitat with its nine wild-animal and marine-life dioramas created by artisans from the American Museum of Natural History.

Today, the 43-acre waterfront Vanderbilt museum complex counts among its extensive collections (which total more than 30,000 objects) the mansion, curator’s cottage, a seaplane hangar and boathouse, antique household furnishings, rare decorative and fine art, the archives and photographic record of Vanderbilt’s circumnavigations of the globe, and published books of his travels.

Vanderbilt realized the potential for his sprawling estate to become a museum “for the use, education and enjoyment of the general public.” He established a trust fund to finance the operation of the museum and deeded it to Suffolk County, New York, upon his death in 1944. The county opened the museum to the public in 1950.
