Charles LeDray at the ICA

Last night some friends and I checked out the Charles LeDray show at the ICA and it was the craziest and coolest thing ever. If you were ever into collecting minitures as a kid (aka if you are female) it is particularly mind blowing although anybody will be impressed by LeDray's talent. There are literally thousands of tiny handmade pieces of clothing and accessories and every detail is spot on. Out of the entire show there are only three found objects, which means when you're looking at the painstakingly recreated clothing stores LeDray made everything from the dust covered drop ceiling to the rows and rows of pint sized hangers.
