Paris on First Ave
Fashion Graffiti at Baby and Co.
Save the date: Parisian artist Catharine Cary has been invited to tag the windows and walls of Baby and Co., and you're invited to watch it happen.
She goes by Tagueuse Elegante—the elegant tagger; Baby and Co. owner and buyer Jill Donnelly spotted her on a buying trip to Paris and, ever the experimental, forward-thinking shopkeeper, invited her to come artfully wreck, wrap, and redecorate her shop's windows.
For starters, it's going to be live. And you're invited to be a part of it.
Just as she's done at such venerated Parisian spots as Balenciaga, Paul Smith, Le Bon Marche, and Courreges, Catharine Cary brings her wordsmithing, performance, dance, and painting backgrounds to First Avenue. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday February 10, 11, and 12 between the hours and 10 and 6, the artist will be transforming Baby and Co.'s already iconic windows and interior with what Donnelly calls a "wild mash of live poetry and color."
You're invited to participate by dropping by with phrases, poems, song lyrics, and quotes inspired by Baby and Co.'s slogan for the season "Live Your Love."
