Tour the Unique & Eclectic Residence of a Renowned NYC Fashion Artist

Loading Experiences

It’s not every day that you get to visit the unique residence of a New York fashion artist, which ranks as one of NYC’s most interesting (Does your apartment have a wooden throne with skulls or mannequins with killer whale necklaces? Didn’t think so).

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive tour inside the private residence of NYC fashion artist Ronald Jackson, who has been making hand-dyed and hand-painted cotton and silk shirts for over 30 years that have been sold at luxury goods retailers like Henri Bendel, Bergdorf Goodman, and Saks Fifth Ave.

Led by Ronald, our unique fashion experience at his fascinating residence will include:

 

  • An overview of Ronald’s storied fashion career, including his laundry list of celebrity clients such as Diana Ross, Peter Martins, Liza Minelli, Peter Frampton, and Joan Jett.
  • A tour of Ronald’s unique residence, which includes sights like a crocodile in an aquarium, leopard skin couches, and a wooden throne topped off with an animal skull.
  • A demonstration around professional-grade hand-dying and hand-painting techniques.
  • A Q&A with Ronald over snacks and beverages.

 

See you there!
