We are SO en Vogue !




What a fabulous 30th Anniversary Gift
for Hammertown!!


Who doesn’t love flipping through the pages of Vogue magazine?  For over 120 years Vogue has placed fashion “in the context of culture and the world we live in—how we dress, live and socialize; what we eat, listen to and watch; who leads and inspires us”.  Always on the cutting edge of what is visually appealing, Vogue has created an equally, (if not more) engaging website.  It’s filled not only with the photographs you’ll see in the magazine but also with inspiring videos and behind the scenes stories you don’t see in the printed issue.  And, of course, there’s that added advantage of not having to carry around a 4 lb. magazine that sometimes seems to contain more ads than editorial 🙂

When we heard that Vogue’s Fashion Market & Accessories Director Virginia Smith, was including Hammertown in her “Guide to the Hudson Valley” story, we were absolutely thrilled.  We’re now officially in the Vogue Directory– meaning we’ll always be in their archives and on their radar!

Here, the Fashion Market and Accessories Director shares some of her favorite places to shop, eat, and hike.   (more…)

Pick up a copy of Vogue’s big September Issue…look for Beyoncé on the cover.
Incidentally this is only the third time a black woman has graced the cover of Vogue in its 123 year history. The other two: Halle Berry (2010) and Naomi Campbell (1989)
