Michael Bastian unveiled his Fall collection to kick off NYFW at the Rubin Museum of Art yesterday for a front row that included Stefano Tonchi, Lisa Salzer, Linda Fargo, Kelly Bensimon, and Ken Downing. Bastian took a little inspiration from Japanese men this season…
As designers get settled back to reality apres-NYFW, last night was about time to celebrate ELLE DECORâ€™s 2013 fashion issue. Guests like Drew Barrymore, Kelly Rutherford, Nicole Miller, Rachel Roy, Waris Ahluwalia, Elle Decor EIC Michael Boodro, Hearst honcho Michael Clinton, Cynthia Frank and Kelly Bensimon gathered at John Demseyâ€™s well-decorated townhouse for the occasion. The setting, in which nearly every surface was decorated and there were pieces of art covering every wall, was apt for hosting an evening of cocktails and tasty bites. Three separate bars (one in the kitchen, one outdoors and one upstairs) kept guests imbibed as they breathed in the scent of the many Fornasetti candles burning, all while rubbing elbows with both the fashion and interior dÃ©cor crowd.
Everybody loves Michael Bastian, so the fash crowd turned out at Corsino last night to celebrate the men’s designer and kick off another fashion week. (It’s here!) Hosts Lucy Sykes Rellie and Euan Rellie welcomed Becka Diamond, Danielle Snyder, Timo Weiland, John Demsey, Kelly Bensimon, Peter Som, Adam Glassman, Jessica Joffee, Nigel Barker, and Bastian’s leading lady Eugenia Gonzalez.
