Harper's Empty Bazaar

Harper's Bazaar magazine is celebrating its 140th anniversary. Quite a feat, so a special book has been published and even translated into Chinese for readers here in Taiwan.
The magazine also launched an 'exhibition' to attract crowds. Unfortunately, judging from the situation this afternoon, those crowds are unlikely to materialize.
I was the only person in the plaza on the 4th floor of Taipei 101 to bother looking at the exhibits: a very old Mercedes from when cars still looked like bicycles with four wheels, two old pieces of luggage from Louis Vuitton, a piece of crystal from Lalique, and two Issey Miyake dresses. The rest: just old pictures, magazine covers and the like.
Absolutely nothing worth writing home about. The only reason why I write about it here is to save you the effort of wasting your time trekking out to Taipei 101 to see it. Just read the magazine. And the others, Elle, Vogue, Madame Figaro.
There was a tent down outside the Taipei 101 shopping mall for its fashion month, though. My feeling is it would be far more interesting if you could get your hands on an invitation for those events. Where you are sure to see fashion in action.
