    I love trolling around the Met site for unique gifts. Here is an interesting one for the fashionista on your holiday shopping list.... from the site: Cuban-born artist and fashion illustrator Ruben Toledo was inspired by objects in the Museum’s Costume Institute to create the witty illustrations on this shiny vinyl tote bag. The history of fashion parades around the border, and iconic styles such as Dior’s New Look and the little black dress are featured in the center. Toledo (born in Havana, 1961) is a renowned sculptor, illustrator, fashion chronicler, and critic. His illustrations have appeared in top fashion magazines and journals around the world, including the New Yorker, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country, Paper, Visionaire, Interview, and the New York Times. His work has been exhibited in The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the textile museum at the Louvre, and his collaboration with his fashion-designer wife, Isabel Toledo, was the subject of both a book and a museum exhibition titled “Toledo/Toledo: A Marriage of Art and Fashion” at The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Vinyl. Height 9 in., width 8 in., depth 4 1/2 in.; strap length 14 in. Ruben Toledo “History of Fashion” Tote Bag
