after the glamorous day at the Tents, the beautiful
people were a-buzz at Fifth Avenue’s Henri
Bendel when the Style 360 Launch Party kicked
off their alternative to Bryant Park by celebrating
the debut of eight exclusive designers.
Nikon teamed up with photographer
Mark Seliger and Alexis Phifer, head designer
of Ghita, to create unique photo fashion looks
for the in store party. Mecury Mariner created
a spectacular display fraught with brown and
white Henri Bendel gift boxes and fodder. Many
guests took refuge among the glitz and glamour
in Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar.
The evening was a triumph
of high fashion, the haute monde, and chocolate
dreams. The Style 360 Launch Party was more
than an alternative to New York Fashion Week,
as it was one of the most elite parties in town,
complete with a red carpet and an uber exclusive
guest list. As far as we could tell, the gift
bag alone was worth the journey, and the fabulous
cocktails topped off an evening of sheer elegance.
