Rebecca Taylor Designs for The Empire Hotel Ambassadors
Like Nanette Lepore, who recently designed uniforms for staff at the Thompson Hotel, designer Rebecca Taylor is lending her design talents to the Empire Hotel. The New Zealand Native teamed up with the hotel to create a signature ensemble, “The Empire Femme Fatale Dress,” to outfit the hotel “ambassadors.” “I am excited to collaborate with the Empire Hotel on this unique project” explained Taylor. “My design for the dress was inspired by the hotel’s interior design, modern, chic and sexy all wrapped in one.”
What’s more to celebrate the dress, the hotel teamed up with mixologist to create a signature cocktail to be served during fashion week. After fashion week is over, the dresses along with an autographed sketch of dress (bidding is open now) will be sold to charity with proceeds benefiting New York Foundling charity.
