Coutorture Cocktails: April 14-18


Another week, another round of parties and goings' on. Strap on your new spring shoes and your weather-appropriate pre-summer layers, and hit the street.


Monday: Today marks the first day of Opening Ceremony's Super Scary sale, where new Spring merchandise is marked up to 75% off. The sale will last for the rest of the month with new deliveries being marked down upon arrival. Maybe it's the recession, maybe it's just Opening Ceremony's way of getting us in the door so that we can fall in love with all of the full price merch. Either way, 'Super scary' is an appropriate title for a month-long sale at every fashionista's favorite New York boutique.


Tuesday: Take a long lunch and visit The International Textile Design Show which runs through the 16th. If you're at all interested in trend forecasting, or are simply a textile nut, this show will have stalls of manufacturers from all corners of the world.


Wednesday: Our network partner, The Fashion Bomb, is throwing a party with Te Casan. Spring 08 shoes will be marked 20% off, The Fashion Bomb's curator, Claire Sulmers, will be djing, and cocktails will be in abundance. Te Casan, if you remember, is the label to host Natalie Portman's vegan shoe collection (100% of proceeds donated to charity). This collection, is not that which will be marked down at the party, but you know, just sayin'.



Thursday: Clothing brand Dangerous Mathematicians, in spirit of the quickly fading Lower East Side music scene, is throwing the Dirty Salsa Party at their Rivington Street boutique. Expect the usual saucy mischief as they've been known to throw some benders. The party starts at 8pm so you've plenty of time to have dinner and pop in after the party gets underway.


Friday: Technically just a regular old party, Studio B's Mighty Healthy Spring Release Party will probably produce more wild outfits than any of the week's parties combined. We therefore dub it Coutorture Cocktail worthy. What convinced us to include it is when we realized that Slick Rick would be doing his thing. Slick Rick, one of Studio B's many mascots, always inspires the bebe fashionistas to break out their crazy-gear. You could go, if you feel like it.
