Feb. 8 kicked off Fashion and Arts Week, an event designed to bring new life to the beautiful Cleveland Street District.
Strolling the sidewalk on that balmy evening, one could hear music wafting from every lighted doorway and relaxed conversation from every outdoor table.
A good first stop was the new studio of Craig Taylor (pictured right), whose world-famous shirts have been worn by Oprah and other notables. His designs hung from racks in colorful disarray, lining the brick walls and reflecting off the strings of lights in the windowsills. Visitors strolled throughout the small rooms, stopping to ask a question of the designer, whose breezy nature and ready smile made him as easy to approach as an old friend.
