wear your history

Life through the lens of Michael Cepress, an artist invested in the adornments of the world, the dress of its people, and why any of it matters in the first place.  It is not Fashion, but Style that leads the way - celebrating the power of cultural storytelling through the magic of clothing.

The Clearwater

I had the amazing opportunity to sail down the Hudson River on The Clearwater, which was Pete Seeger's glorious sailboat and gift to us all as a reminder of the magic of sailing and the beauty of the river. In 1969 Pete launched The Clearwater, fueled by his brilliant voice as a folk musician and political/environmental activist - in his words he wanted to “build a boat to save the river.”

Today's skies were bright and clear, and I could not have imagined a more lovely way to experience New York and the Hudson. History is all around us, and once in a while we just might be lucky enough to step into its heart to hear its story firsthand.
