The 20th Anniversary of Sex and the City

Posted on June 11, 2018 by Tracie Pfrogner

Twenty years ago, HBO debuted Sex and the City, a show about four women living vicariously in New York City, with Manolos on their feet and a Cosmopolitan in their right hand. This show wasn’t just a show, it was a lifestyle representing single fabulous women living out their dreams in New York City. We were there with Carrie when she received the post it note break up all the way to her “something blue” Manolo Blahnik heels when she finally married Mr. Big. From brunching to babies, Sex and the City covered everything about being a woman in the early 2000’s.

A Look at “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”

Posted on May 30, 2018 by Tracie Pfrogner

Walking into the Medieval and Byzantine Art area of the Met feels as if you are walking into an old monumental church. Crowds solemnly look up at the raised platforms of glittering Dolce & Gabbana and Versace garments like saints coming down from heaven. The overall exhibition is incredibly dramatic, featuring many show-stopping looks from designers like Jean-Paul Gaultier and Christian Lacroix. The entire vibe is almost eerie, with the sounds of church organ music that plays as you walk through the various areas.

Celebrating Mother's Day with Michaels

Posted on May 11, 2018 by Tracie Pfrogner

Family is at the core of what we do here at Michael’s, since 1954! On Mother’s Day especially we would love to take a moment to share some of our favorite things about our own mothers, whether they are far from home or they work alongside us every day (like our President and Vice President, Laura and Tammy!). So today, we are taking a moment to shout out motherhood and give these important women in our lives the spotlight. These women have raised us and shaped us into the people we are today, and we don’t need just one day to thank them for everything they’ve done. Keep reading to hear some of our Michael's girls thoughts on motherhood.

Hey fellow Michael’s Girls, today we’re coming to you live from our new location at 1125 Madison Avenue! We are so excited to be opening tomorrow in our new home at 84th St. One of the most exciting things about our new location is that we are literally footsteps away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a New York City staple. It’s so surreal to think that just last night we were mere meters away from the majestic celebrity-filled iconic Met Gala red carpet.

Celebrating Earth Day Before There was an Earth Day!

Posted on April 06, 2018 by Tamara Gates

Since the turn of the century, my family has believed in sustainability and “going green”.  Way before it was a thing, we were doing it. My great-great grandfather Simon was a tailor in the late 1800’s.  He could not believe the amount of beautiful garments that were often abandoned at his lower east side shop in NYC. He did not have the heart to toss them in the trash and instead believed that someone would love to have these pieces in their closets.

Moving on Up!

Posted on March 01, 2018 by Laura Fluhr

EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT! Onward and uptown! Michael's is on the move. We are leaving our wonderful home of 64 years and moving north to a fabulous ground floor location, 4 blocks up on Madison. 1041 Madison provided an excellent environment during our formative years and a wonderful place to grow up and mature. Now that we have become a destination business with clients and consignors from around the world, it is time to take our place at street level on Madison Avenue so we can better serve our clientele.
