New Yorkers are notoriously busy people, but things seem to get even crazier when the month of September rolls around, even more so during Fashion Week. But with editors, influencers, and celebrities dashing up, down, and across town to take their seats (or stand) along the runways of Pier 59 and Industria studios, the real fun comes after the show, in the form of fabulous parties. Yes, the idiom "Work hard, play hard" proves true, especially when Fashion Week is in full force, and speaking of fabulous parties, L'Officiel USA hosted an intimate dinner in honor of our September men’s issue cover star, Mark Ronson, at the storied New York EDITION hotel.
For the occasion, guests gathered for a brief respite from all the crazy energy of the week, sipping champagne inside The EDITION's luxe lobby. The real highlight of the evening came in the form of a seated, three-course dinner, prepared by the master chefs of The Clocktower restaurant. Elegant, fresh flower arrangements courtesy of Michael O'Connor seemed to glow against delicate votive candles, creating the perfect ambiance for a celebratory, A-list dinner sans smoke and mirrors.
Fellow attendees included Adam Selman, Teddy Quinlavin, Luke Gilford, Rainsford, Swimsuit Issue, Oyinda, King Princess, Parker Kit Hill, SSION, and more. As the night raged on, you could sense an aura of care-free fun, echoed by the sounds of laughter and great conversation, two things recent New York Fashion Weeks have seemed to lack.
