I just came across Mrs. Bloomingdale's obituary online. As I have read the FIDM Museum blog the last couple of years her name has been often credited for her generous gifts. I know she has been an amazing supporter of the institution and the museum. I know you will all miss her.

So sad to hear the news of Betsy Bloomingdale's passing. She was a lady who certainly left a positive mark in this world of ours. Thank you Betsy!

The end of an epoch -- there has never been anyone quite in her fashion class (at least in L.A.). She understood the haute couture to her bones, wore it regally, and supported its designers and craftsmen & women richly. Whatever her politics, she was an enthusiastic supporter of the fashion world, its greatest designers and their art, and design generally. I don't think her role as a great hostess should be underappreciated, either. She knew something of the art of entertaining and did it with grace and originality. She understood something of the redemption of charm & beauty -- and lived it.
