I’ve put together a list of some NYFW parties, but I will continue to update the list during fashion week (which begins tomorrow). Your best bet is to go to Le Baron, Red Egg, Boom Boom Room, and Electric Room as I’m sure they will be hosting after parties most nights of the week. Acme and Super Linda will be hosting NYFW dinners throughout the week. Acme is hosting private events Friday, Saturday, and Wednesday (M.A.C. event).
Tonight we kick off NYFW eve with Allison Parris’ party at 1oak. Open bar 11-12. If you still want to get your name on the list, you can try to email FW12Launch@allisonparris.com. I went to her presentation+party last year; the party was very low key. With this season’s location, it may be a bit better, but 1oak never gets good until about 2am, so I’d recommend showing up late. However, if you want to talk to Allison about her new collection, get there at 11.
