I-ELLA.com and Assouline Hosts Parties at the Lincoln Center InStyle Lounge
For the first-time ever InStyle magazine created a special invite-only lounge during New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
The super swanky lounge allowed editors, fashion writers, stylists, notable personalities, and other invited guests to take a break from the busy Lincoln Center tents. Attendees enjoyed delicious mini-bites, drinks, a relaxed work atmosphere with a set of working computers, a place to chat with friends and a cool place to spend time.
“After-hours,” the lounge doubled as a party space. One party hosted by Veronica Webb, offered guests a sneak peek at I-Ella.com as they enjoyed cocktails and canapés. The website is a new invite-only online marketplace where users can buy, borrow, swap and sell the latest must-have fashions. The gorgeous Webb sang the praises of the wonderful company during a short speech at the party. In addition, to Webb, I spotted founder Ella Gorgla; I also spotted Fashion Week Director of Lincoln Center Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, FEED Co-Founder Ellen Gustafson, Harriette Cole of Ebony, and stylist Lloyd Boston.
The InStyle lounge was also the chosen location for a special party to celebrate Assouline‘s new book “American Fashion Designers at Home.” I love Assouline and was thrilled to meet some of the people behind the company. Author Rima Suqi, who is delightful and so witty, was on hand at the launch party and signed copies of the book for the invited guests. The book is a totally must have for fashionistas – it includes some of American best known fashion designers at home.
