We’re not big on envy, but we can’t help but feel a touch toward Ruben Toledo.
He’s not just married to his high-school sweetheart who happens to be fashion icon Isabel Toledo, he also has talent by the bucketfuls.
Ever since his eerie, disproportionate ads for Nordstrom, we’ve been jealous of his creepy, kitschy illustration style. Not to mention, he’s the proud owner of one of the most memorable moustaches since Salvador Dali – or Hamish – and for that we’re twice as envious.
So lucky for us, he’s speaking on October 29 at FIT. He’ll talk about art and fashion and also about his wife Isabel and how her influence affects his work and why he thinks “collaboration is the name of the game.”
As if listening to Ruben divulge the secrets of his artistic wonder wasn’t enough, the talk will end with a book signing, so you can get your copies of his illustrated books signed.
Also, we’d bet money Isabel will be there, too which means you can ask her what it feels like to dress the first lady or be a member of fashion’s chicest couple. For all the event info, check out the FIT website.
