Celebrity Stylist Mary Lafayette
and Publicist Tamara Walker
Te Casan is one of the most beautiful
spaces in Manhattan to hold an event and this glorious
shoe emporium recently celebrated the signing of
celebrity stylist Mary Lafayette to the Victoria
Agency. On September 26th, cocktails courtesy of
White Diamond Vodka and Redbull were flowing as
guests mingled and admired the limited edition luxury
footwear in over 7,500 square feet of sprawling
luxury. Bre Scullark from America’s Next Top
Model hosted the event as fashion insiders networked
and sauntered about the party.
Lafayette has a strong portfolio,
and she has styled Mary J. Blige, Chris Tucker,
Kimora Lee Simmons, and others. “I think my
success is due to the diversity within my work,
and I one day hope to work with Madonna. I always
strive to let my creativity show through in a clean
and somewhat edgy way.” Upon speaking with
Lafayette further, she commented, “I have
always been a little fashionista, and this is a
tremendous opportunity for me. I’m very excited
about joining the Victoria Agency, and look forward
to successful representation.”
Giant Magazine, Cibu, Kyotofu,
Def Jam Records, and Smooth Movements’ luxury
car service sponsored the event and filled the goody
bags with delectable treats. And 20% of the evenings
proceeds benefited the American Cancer Society.
Gift bags, celebrities, and charity – oh my!
This was definitely an evening to remember.
