If you need a weekend getaway, now's the time to drive to Palm Springs.
The city is in the middle of Modernism Week, a ten-day celebration of all things mod.
On this week's "The Styled Side," contributor Michelle Dalton Tyree from Fashion Trends Daily shares some of her highlights.
- On Thursday, February 18th, it's an Afternoon with Mad Men. Matthew Weiner and his creative team will talk about costumes and sets, along with Jessica Pare, who played Megan Draper. Designer Trina Turk, known for her modern take on Palm Springs style will also be there.
- New York-based Designer Lisa Perry, who owns a spectacular collection of vintage couture clothing from the 60s and 70s, will present some of those key pieces that have inspired her modern collection. She and her husband, whose firm acquired ownership of Barneys New York, own a very formidable pop art collection that has inspired the clothing for her line.
- Visitors can buy a ticket to tour the Christopher Kennedy showhouse. It's the yearly design house helmed by celebrated Palm Springs interior designer Christopher Kennedy, and they give a room to different designers to put their spin on it. Martyn Lawrence Bullard did a super-glam mirrored dining room with custom wallpaper, for example, and Carson Kressley did one of my favorite fashion-driven rooms by covering one wall full of fashion illustrations from a collaboration he did with The Oliver Gal Artist Co.
