One of New York’s hottest studios, Milk, hosted quite the bash Sunday evening. All the fashionistas piled into the freight elevator to be dropped on the eighth floor amidst a whole slew of happenings from designer presentations to drinks and tasty fish tacos served by Top Chef’s finest, Sam Talbot. My first stop was to GQ‘s recently named best new menswear designer in America, Billy Reid. A studio turned forest, the models couldn’t have blended any better with their surroundings. The Woodsman, The Washed American and The Woodford Reserve Master Distiller are just a few titles to describe Reid’s timeless collection.
Next stop: Peter Jensen. I was thrilled that the regular for London’s catwalks finally made his way here. Perfectly fitting for the holiday, love songs were performed live by Nina Perrsons from The Cardigans as models strutted out in forties, school girl styles, inspired by Murial Spark’s The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.
Other highlights of the evening included Camilla Staerk and Victor Glemaud‘s collections on display, as well as meeting one of my favorite bloggers, the adorable 13-year-old, Tavi. Then it was off to the Gansevoort Rooftop to party with Billy Reid before calling it a night.
