Coonan's innovative line (named after her best friend Alice Barlow) was created to explore "contradictions in style" like mixing the traditional with the avant-garde and she cites both Bayside High and Snoop Dogg as sources of inspiration. While the designer is still quite new to the scene, judging by the A-list crowd who danced, mingled, and enjoyed Red Bull cocktails at the launch, she has been able to make quite an impression. Other guests of the party included Gideon Yago, Abigail Lorick, Neel Shah, Harley Viera-Newton, and Kerin Rose.
