Nina Runsdorf & Kate Young team up to celebrate the season
Friends and Upper East Side neighbors, jewelry designer Nina Runsdorf and stylist to the stars Kate Young, were joined by a whole host of tastemakers, editors, and models to ring in the festive season. The group gathered for a cocktail moment and intimate seated dinner in a private, library-style setting at the mouth-watering Soho eatery La Mercerie (chocolate profiteroles! Cheesey choux pastries! Need we say more!). Guests mingled with the hosting duo, and received a beautiful Nina Runsdorf-designed ring with a colorful, hanging teardrop-shaped gem to take home as a keepsake of the evening. Among those in attendance were Batsheva Hay, Brie Welch, Edward Barsamian, Ian Bradley, Jason Rembert, Jessica Joffe, Maayan Zilberman, Teddy Quinlivan, Violetta, and more.
