Worth a visit to the Metropolitan Museum, the exhibition – www.metmuseum.org/deathbecomesher – explores the aesthetic development and cultural implications of mourning fashions of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Approximately 30 ensembles, many of which are being exhibited for the first time, reveal the impact of high-fashion standards on the dictates of bereavement rituals as they evolved over a century.
This summer The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art are presenting PUNK: Chaos to Couture. The exhibition will examine punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the 1970s through its continuing influence today.

After more than six decades on the Upper East Side, the Spence-Chapin Thrift Store
— which raises money for the nonprofit’s adoption organization of the same name — is leaving
its 1473 Third Ave. space when its lease is up in June, after more than
10 years at that address. A second branch at East 96th Street and Second
Avenue closed a few years ago to make way for Second Avenue subway construction.
the last few years, the iconic shop has been running on a deficit, the
organization’s spokeswoman Leslie Case said. It could not compete with
larger nonprofits that can throw more administrative heft behind their
thrift stores, like Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center or the Salvation Army.
