I had the great fortune to stumble across the Ideal Glass Pop-Up Shop & Art Gallery on 22 E 2nd Street, (Between Bowery and 2nd Ave).  Calling themselves an interdisciplinary industrial space for the development and presentation of unusual works, the Ideal Glass gallery is definitely worth a look.  When I visited it was to see the Art Wear at the pop-up shop but their portfolio also consists of video, music,  and multimedia projects.  The Ideal Orkestra frequently plays at  the Amelie Wine Bar on 22 West 8th Street, their jazzy original tracks keep guests entertained in the candlelight of the French inspired bar/ dining room.

The clothing in the store was really inventive and though the space was small it was a great showcase of what was on offer from the imagination of Uta Bekaia.  A costume and fashion designer from Tbilisi , Georgia, Bekaia has been working inNew York city since 1998.  Working mostly in costume design he has created work for theater and film companies, he has also done work for interior and industrial design companies.  He is currently part of SaintHollywood a New York based multimedia art project and took part in 2012s Williamsburg Fashion Weekend.
