A Look Inside New York Fashion Week’s Hottest Parties

While it’s the shows that attract the fashionable and famous to the Big Apple for New York Fashion Week, the parties that follow are equally as enticing.

This season there were no shortcomings when it came to the festivities.

Last Friday, the new CFDA chairman, Tom Ford, kicked off New York Fashion Week with dinner held at the legendary downtown restaurant Indochine.

Emerging designers and international editors celebrated the start of New York Fashion Week over Vietnamese fare at Indochine, a restaurant that’s been a backdrop for the fashion scene for over three decades.

And the party did not stop there. On Saturday, Alexander Wang, celebrated his “Serpenti Through the Eyes of Wang” capsule collection with Bulgari by throwing a bash at an abandoned department store on Fifth Avenue.

Models, celebrities and the stylish mingled amongst the bare mannequins in the empty Henri Bendel store, which closed all of its 23 stores and website last year.
