On Friday September 17th, That Girl At The Party and celebrity stylist and TV personality, Nole Marin hosted the “I Survived Fashion Week” Party sponsored by Logitech. The celebration marked TGATP’s first foray into events and our first collaboration with the wonderful Mr. Marin, as well as, the relaxing end of a very busy Fashion Week for all in attendance.
I was honored to present the first of a series of parties to be held at the beautiful Logitech Loft in Tribeca. Logitech, a world leader in personal peripherals, driving innovation in PC navigation, Internet communications, digital music, home-entertainment control, gaming and wireless devices, outfitted the space with the latest in consumer technology, which provided an engaging afternoon for the stylish crowd comprised of fabulous fashionistas, my fellow bloggers, and friends and family members of TGATP and Nole. My theme for the event was an elegant house party. By providing really good food and a gift bag chock-full of all of TGATP’s favorite products, guests were made to feel as if they were at my home. In addition, I created a specially designed TGATP playlist featuring an eclectic blend of party music from Electronica to Ska to Motown to Rock to Jazz standards. I was kitted out in a dress by Issac Mizarhi and stunningly beautiful costume jewelry from the Lia Sophia Red Carpet collection.
Tastings, TGATP’s pick for the best caterer in NY, provided an amazing menu of hor d’ourves including a lobster bisque ball that melted in our mouths and the most sumptuous Beef Sliders on the market. In addition, we had yummy Crispy Daunade Rolls, delicious Vegetable Summer rolls, and delectable mini Chicken Empanadas. Dessert was a taste pleasing combo of Lemon Creme Brulee and Mini Bittersweet Brownies. Wine was provided by Penfolds with beer sponsored by Sugar Hill. In addition, we were blessed to have wonderful raw food smoothies prepared with Sun Warrior products by raw food expert Danny David and my new favorite chocolates from Vanessa Barg‘s company, Gnosis Chocolate. Vanessa’s chocolates are definitely my new weakness, especially the Aphrodisia, which definitely lives up to its name!
Gift bags consisted of all of TGATP’s favorite products and cards from my favorite places, including awesome noise reducing ear phones from Logitech’s Ultimate Ears division, gorgeous rings from the Grayce by Molly Sims line, adorable sports watches from Wooloot, “pay-it-forward” Boom Boom Cards, mini bottles of Moroccanoil, melt-in-your-mouth cookies from pastry artist Robert Ferranti, copies of the hot new fashion mag, Runway, Zestra, Kind Bars, Pop Chips, and gift cards from Crunch Gym, Sleek MedSpa, and Oasis Day Spa. Vanessa also kindly contributed a bar of Gnosis Chocolate to each gift bags.
Celebrities in attendance included Nole, actress and new TGATP BFF Antonique Smith best known for her portrayal as “Faith Evans” in the Biggie bio pic “Notorious”, and Derek Warburton of “Derek Loves Shopping”. Ronnie Kroell from the first season of “Make Me A Supermodel”, who is currently filming a second reality series, was also in attendance.
