Ah March is upon us. This means that Spring is right around the corner. And what does Spring bring besides April showers and May flowers? Music Festivals! SXSW in Austin, Coachella in California, Winter Music Conference and Ultra in Miami- there’s so much to see and hear, and so many fashion choices to be made!

Festival fashion is always such a fun project to plan out. Fringe, tie dye, cut off denim shorts, Native American and South American styles mixing with vintage designer and so much more- it’s a time where people are free to be as stylish as they want (take celebrities wearing high end fashion to their VIP tents) and as laid back as you feel (like plush cartoon inspired onesies.) Either way, jewelry plays a HUGE factor. It’s fun, it’s personal and it, well it’s jewelry! That’s always a good thing.

Mario Testino Displays His Photos of Beautiful Native Peruvian Clothing

Screen shot 2013-11-21 at 4.46.13 PM

Famed photographer Mario Testino took a different turn with his highly acclaimed work to capture the breathtakingly colorful clothing of Native Peruvians of the mountainous region of Cusco. His exhibit is called “Alta Moda” or High Fashion in Spanish. The fabulous photos will be on display at the Queen Sophia Spanish Institute in New York until March 29th, 2014. The images are vivid and truly inspirational. The color and texture, along with musical and cultural elements really set these photos apart from lots of mainstream fashion photography.

Queen Sofía Spanish Institute, under the chairmanship of Oscar de la Renta, is the first American venue to present ALTA MODA, a series of photographic portraits by acclaimed photographer Mario Testino. Known primarily for his work in fashion magazines, Testino makes a bold departure with this series. Alta Moda—literally “high fashion” in Spanish—documents Peruvians in their vibrantly colored and ornately adorned traditional and festive dress from Cusco, one of the highest mountainous regions of Peru. ALTA MODA by Mario Testino is accompanied by a series of related public programs that will additionally serve to reinforce the Institute’s mission of promoting greater awareness and understanding of the culture of Spain in the United States through a steadfast dedication to advancing scholarship in the humanities and the arts. Please check the website www.qssi.org for a schedule of events.

So, if you happen to be in the city during the next 4 months, take a day to mosey on over to the exhibit. For now, check out some of the photos below!
