PatBo & FIT’s Couture Council Young Patrons celebrated the museum’s new exhibit
Taco Tuesday, but make it fashion. Guests gathered at Nolita’s Café Habana for Casamigos tequila shots, blackened fish tacos, Cubano sandwiches, and the eatery’s famous grilled corn and fried plantains to celebrate the new FIT exhibit, ¡Moda Hoy! Latin American and Latinx Fashion Design Today. The event was hosted by FIT’s Couture Council Young Patrons, and celebrated PatBo’s inclusion in the exhibition. Open to the public from now until November, the assortment sees over 60 objects which highlight designers of Latin American heritage living and working in the United States. Sitting pretty in the downtown set’s go-to neighborhood Cuban spot—all in sparkling, embellished, and flowing PatBo numbers, of course—were Candace Bushnell, Kimberly Drew, Jonathan Cohen, Sarah Hoover, Nikki Kynard, Gabby Prescod, Sandrine Charles, Melvin Lawovi, Ashley James, Lizzie Asher, Laura Day Webb, Nolan Meader, Valerie Steele, Stephanie Nass, Casey Kohlberg, Stephanie Suberville, Kimberli Gant, Alexander Hankin, Christina Grasso, and more.
In LA, Christian Louboutin & Rossy de Palma raised a glass to the Flamencaba collection
Vamos! Christian Louboutin was joined by longtime supporters of the house as he toasted to his latest installment of the globally-minded ‘Caba’ series. (ICYMI: this time, he cast his eyes to Spain for the limited-edition Flamencaba collection.) For the collection, the shoemaker teamed up with his friend Rossy De Palma—you can even see her embroidered in illustrations on certain pieces. De Palma joined Louboutin on co-hosting duty for the bash which was held in the villa-style surroundings of Downtown LA’s Carondelet House. Upon entering, guests were treated to a traditional Spanish tablao experience, thanks to a performance by a trio of Flamenco dancers, a live guitarists, and plentiful servings of sangria, tapas dishes, and fresh paella. The evening brought out the likes of Avril Lavigne, Zoey Deutch, Diego Boneta, Evan Ross, Sara Sampaio, Tiffany Haddish, Dita Von Teese, Quincy Brown, Kiersey Clemons, Elisa Sednaoui, Sofia Reyes, Brad Goreski, and many more.
