Tommy Hilfiger Store Opens in NYC Fifth Avenue
At the end of all the madness that is fashion week Tommy Hilfiger celebrated the opening of their global flagship store on New York City Fifth Avenue with what else a party. After sitting one of the worst show, I was so over fashion and just wanted to go home but I was encouraged by friends who were at the party to attend the opening. And, since I was on the list I decided to take a quick train ride down there so see what all the excitement was about. Well, I am glad that I did.
There was a crowd of excited folks right outside the store waiting for the attention to begin and the famous people to arrive. So taken aback by all the commotion and with huge dread I make my way to the PR people and say my name and in walks Alicia Keys with bodyguard and boyfriend (Swiss Beats). Both the PR girl and me are like, was that “Alicia Keys?” Though, I never saw her inside along with many of other famous attendees that included Anna Wintour, Alicia Keys, Mena Suvari, Ally Hilfiger, Penn Badgley, Naomi Watts, Mary-Louise Parker, Russell Simmons. So, my initial fear aside I make my way inside to party after I grab my glass of bubbly of course and immediately recognize the sounds of DJ Cassidy on the turntable. I know, I am sad.
The store itself is filled with all the preppy clothes your heart can desire. And, it is a huge space complete with a spiral staircase, chandeliers, cool resting areas but that no one took advantage of because everyone was too busy dancing. That is until eight hit when the music stop and we were told to make our way to the tents for the Tommy show and with that the party was over but the store is open. So check it out for yourself.
