Charlotte Ronson, LensCrafters, Sunglass Hut and CFDA Hosts a Fabulous Party
The jet-set types unencumbered by the trouble of the masses–including unreasonable weather conditions such as single digit temperature put on their fanciest weather appropriate boots and took-over the Gramercy Park Hotel’s Rooftop Terrace. The guests joined LensCrafters, Sunglass Hut and the Council of Fashion Designers of America to celebrate the 4th annual Design Series for Vogue Eyewear. This year participating designer Charlotte Ronson, welcomed guests into the festively decorated space.
On the night the rooftop was filled with candles, gorgeous floral accents and a massive graffiti inspired step-and-repeat for the night’s notable guests including Ann Dexter-Jones, Nicky and Barron Hilton, Fern Mallis, Alexi and Ariel Ashe, Timo Weiland, Mara Hoffman, Dani Stahl, and Eleanor Yivisaker Ann Dexter-‐Jones, Nicky and Barron Hilton, Fern Mallis, Alexi and Ariel Ashe, Timo Weiland, Mara Hoffman, Dani Stahl, and Eleanor Yivisaker. As you would imagine this rarefied group stopped to snap pictures for the waiting photographers before joining the party. The decor, one would assume, was designed to captured the flirty and feminine vibe of the collection which just so happen to draw inspiration from Charlotte’s muse– Vogue Eyewear Global Brand Ambassador Eva Mendes.
In addition to partying amid a lavishly decorated space, guests also sampled Charlotte’s favorite fresh, healthy juices and receiving personalized tips from a nutritionist, designed beanies bearing graffiti art emblazoned
with signature nicknames. And then like any properly “hydrated” set they danced to the Samantha Ronson (who was wearing an adorable animal printed sweater bearing his sister dog-Oliver) spunned tunes.
