Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave

We drove to San Francisco and had a wonderful hike through Lincoln Park overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge on one side and the Pacific on the other.

The exhibit was at the de Young – Legion of Honor and encompassed 15 years of work.  “Papiers a la Mode”, “Medicis” and “Mariano Fortuny”  60 costumes made entirely from paper.
