Everyone knows that fashion people are much more pleasant to be around when they've a cocktail in their hands (yes, sometimes two at once is necessary). This week there are a few fashion happenings that we thought to shoutout for our New York readers. If you're not in New York, please comment with industry happenings in your neck of the woods. Hell, embed the invite. For all we know, everyone will be inspired to jot down the address and hop on a plane for the occasion.
Wednesday: Spend the day loitering at Bergdorf! From 1-2 you can meet the two designers for Marchesa's eveningwear collection and, let's not forget, take a gander at the gorgeous frocks. Grab a cocktail (it's Wednesday!) and then reappear for a chance to meet designer Roland Mouret from 4-6. Click for more info.
Thursday: One of our favorite showrooms, Archetype, is sponsoring an event that's a surefire bet for long lines and late night dancing. Spring Court, their client, presents Brantley Gutierrez's 'Sound and Light' exhibit in Nolita. LCD Soundsystem and The Secret Machines are playing and then, uhoh, there's an after party at Tribeca Grand. Click for more info.
Friday: Menswear designer Yoko Devereaux is running a Spring sale at their Williamsburg store all afternoon, followed by a birthday party/pre-summer bash at the new Trophy Bar down the street. It's right off the J Train so avoid Bedford Avenue, hit up Moto for lunch, pick up some boy clothes in small sizes, and show-off your tomeboy chic look at Trophy Bar thereafter. Click for more info.
Saturday: This Saturday, Brooklyn's hip and withit Co Op, 3rd Ward, is having an all-day open house. Activities range from Badminton to metal shop tutorials, but for fashionistas, head over anytime from 12-5 for a costume photo shoot. GoFish! in Carol Gardens is bringing over vintage clothes, hats, wigs, accessories, etc. for people to dress up in and photographer Cecily Upton will be on hand to take polariods of everyone (which they can buy for a $1).The party ends at the infamous '??' hour, which we suspect means that by 2pm the next day you'll be sitting at brunch with a complete stranger. Be careful, just because he's an artist doesn't mean he shouldn't buy your eggs benedict! Click for more info.
Sunday: Take a break from Fashion and try watching this video without smiling!
