Martha Stewart Living, February 2010
Donna Newman Photography
Darcy's first gallery show, “Family” at Partner's
and Spade, brought her passion for scrapbooking, illustration and the chronicling of special moments
to life. Produced by Darcy and Partners and Spade and art directed by Cheree Berry, the show featured whimsical illustrations, diaries, scrapbooks, children's drawings and other uniquely personal pieces documenting the experiences that shaped her memories of family. The show also featured the debut of Darcy's signature scrapboxes and a special exhibit titled “Fashion's Families,” portraits of families in the fashion world and those they care about. Dog's included!
Those in attendance for the opening reception also had the unique opportunity to have their family portrait taken by famed celebrity photographer Donna Newman framed with a custom illustration by Darcy and with calligraphy by Bernard Maisner. Proceeds from the event benefited Mount Sinai's Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes.
