Bogie, Kimba and I want to send blessings and best wishes on the Easter Sunday. We put on our Easter finery and enjoyed strolling through the New York Easter Bonnet Festival.

THE JOY OF EASTER
Nothing rings in Spring more beautifully than Easter Sunday. Films, musicals, songs, poetry, toys, foods, deserts and yes fashions have been inspired by this holiday. Here in New York City we have a traditional Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival which for years, when we are here in the city, have not only attended but have enjoyed participating while wearing my creations.
This year was no exception. After hunting down just the right materials to bring my creations to fruition, I rolled up my sleeves and with diligence went on to produce these whimsical outfits and hats for us.
One word comes to mind to describe public reaction is “Thrilled”. There were smiles, careful inspections, oohs and ahhhs. Then of course the expected photos being snapped left and right. My personal joy comes from knowing that something I created with my imagination and my two hands brings so much joy to others.
Enough said. Here are a few photos taken by my friend, the talented photographer, Dez Santana who I tricked into posing with me and Bogie in one shot.
I hope my boys and my creations bring joy to your hearts and please feel free to repost and share.
Stay tuned I will soon be giving all a closer look at these masterpieces, to see the detailed work and custom tailoring that went into producing these original couture creations.
Love Anthony Rubio, Bogie and Kimba
