Last night, French Connection and The Daily Front Row kicked off the holidays with a packed holiday bash at the brand’s Soho location. Guests such as Garrett Neff, Alex and Keytt Lundqvist, Douglas Joseph, Jenny Albright, Ian Mellencamp, Jasmine Grace Grimaldi, Sif Saga, Mariah Strongin, Tobias Sorenson, Brendon Beck, George Wayne, and Sophie and Charlotte Bickley sipped and shopped while DJ Huggybear provided the jams. The brand also brought in musician Creative Casualty to play the electric violin and interact with the crowd throughout the night.
The hot topic of the eve was where the fashion set is heading in a few weeks for the holidays. Model Dougie Joseph is going home to spend a few weeks in his native Australia while Mariah Strongin is heading to Oregon and then Tuscany with her beau. “The decorations at this time of year get me really giddy,” Strongin told us about the holiday season. “I love baking, Christmas music, and it’s really important for me to see my family this time of the year. I like to take a relaxing second to recoup from the year and remember where I came from and know where I’m going.”
Photog Andrew Werner was on hand to capture some of the gorgeous faces at French Connection last night.
