Last night Artwalk NY celebrated its 20th anniversary auction to benefit The Coalition for the Homeless. The event has a rich history of raising significant funds for the cause, with notable artists like Chuck Close and Yoko Ono repeatedly donating art for the auction. Past honorees have also included notable New Yorkers Patrick McMullan and Alec Baldwin, with the film power-couple Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany selected this year. The incredible food selection, Harley Viera-Newton's fun music mix, and the charitable crowd only rivaled the phenomenal artwork, resulting in a wonderful night and a memorable 20th anniversary for Artwalk.
As one of fashion's most innovative and influential labels, Hood By Air could not be expected to limit its presentations to Fashion Week, New York or otherwise. We were hardly surprised, therefore, when we were invited to last night's HBA party at the Museum of Modern Art. Titled "Id," in relation to the label's two other shows this season—"Ego" at NYFW and "Superego" in Paris—the multifaceted event, in conjunction with MoMA's PopRally, featured stunning visual-audio displays, an industrial strength fog machine, and standout performances by Ian Isiah, Mykki Blanco, and Boychild. And while the theme wasn't quite Halloween, the (many) #FashionGoths in attendance most definitely brought in the chill-factor. Click through for an inside look at the exclusive HBA x MoMA PopRally.

With fans like Michelle Obama, Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman, it's no doubt that Peter has become one of our favorite faces in fashion since debuting his brand in 2001. We caught up with Peter Som and his CEO Elana Nathan to find out what they are working on post-fashion week, and spent a little time picking their brains on some much-needed style tips for the upcoming season.
