Lucie Bigelow Rosen, a chic 20th-century philanthropist and theremin soloist who, together with her husband Walter, founded the Caramoor music festival in 1946 on the grounds of their estate in Katonah was the inspiration for our fall fashion shoot. With her own sense of style in mind, we invited young local musicians to join us beyond the historic 18th-century Swiss gates of what is now known as Caramoor Center for Music & the Arts to model locally sold fashions and to give you a peek at some impressively talented young women and spectacular hidden spaces.
