Tanya Taylor and Swarovski, along with Saks Fifth Avenue, hosted an intimate, tropical-themed dinner on an unseasonably warm New York night to celebrate the Spring/Summer 2017 Saks Fifth Avenue Runway to Reality capsule collection. The soirée was held in Santina’s vibrant event space, an apropos place to feast on the Italian coastal cuisine and take in the collection imbued with tropical floral prints, which includes limited-edition pieces that feature Swarovski crystals. Guests who joined for the night out included Tanya Taylor, Chelsea Leyland, Erin Hazelton, Georgia Fowler, Giorgia Tordini, Kitty Cash, Mao Aberg, Kristen Joy Watts, Renata Zandonadi, Sabine Heller, and TK Wonder.
“It was a pleasure to collaborate with Tanya Taylor on a capsule collection of gorgeous buy-now-wear-now pieces for Saks, highlighted at their new store downtown in New York. She is a talented young designer with a fresh and imaginative approach to prints, and we are thrilled to see Tanya’s signature florals come to life when adorned with layers of Swarovski crystals,” said Nadja Swarovski, member of the Swarovski Executive Board.
“Tanya Taylor is one of fashion’s rising stars and we are very excited to partner with her on this exclusive capsule. She has a great eye for color, print and pattern, and always adds some type of fantastic twist or novelty to the collection,” said Roopal Patel, SVP/fashion director at Saks Fifth Avenue. “The Saks customer is constantly seeking out fresh fashion for her wardrobe, and I know Tanya’s capsule is going to be an instant hit with her!”
Tanya Taylor isn’t done celebrating just yet! Today the brand is hosting a shopping event at Saks Downtown from 6 – 7:30 p.m.
