It was all magic at midnight last night, as FENDI launched its uber glamorous new capsule collection with French sunglasses designer Thierry Lasry. Lasry co-hosted the event with DJ and fashionista Leigh Lezark, who also worked the turntables with her fellow Misshape Geordon Nicol. For their second gig of the evening (they also spun at the Wildfox presentation downtown), the DJs were impressively on point. Giovanna Battaglia, Laura Love, and the Brant boys also made it out to FENDI's Madison Avenue store for the event, catching a special performance by Jillian Hervey a.k.a. Lion Babe.

The Frick's 16th annual Young Fellows Ball was no doubt on every major social calendar last night, as most of New York's glamorous young art enthusiasts made bold appearances. This year's theme, A Dance at the Spanish Court, was inspired by the special exhibition, Coypel’s Don Quixote Tapestries: Illustrating a Spanish Novel in Eighteenth-Century France. The influence of classic Spain was prevalent in some of the night's best looks, which included red floral hair accessories and even fans by Lanvin, the event's sponsor.

With any luck, significantly warmer days are ahead of us. But for the moment, it's feeling far more pre-fall than it is particularly vernal outside. You can't rush spring - something which all of the recent seasonally inappropriate, bare legged and light jacketed people on the streets don't seem to understand. The weather is just too complex a system, one that outsmarts even the most advanced of shadow analyst groundhogs. So keep that turtleneck sweater on, and enjoy what will hopefully be the last weekend where pudding and porridge prove the perfect plates to cozy up to.

I’m a naturally shy person. I’d never call myself witty (or a wordsmith) and I’m certainly not someone who can enter a room and know how to easily chat up strangers. Nope, that’s not me. I’m quiet and socially awkward and nervous. Maybe that makes me insecure or maybe it makes me endearing? Either way it’s me and I’ve gotta to work with what I’ve got. That’s not to say I don’t push myself to step outside my comfort zone. I can recall a specific time when a dear friend (who is equally shy) and I made a pact before entering an event: We would not stand behind a glass wall all night. Today I can proudly say EyeSwoon has shattered my glass wall. So even though I still get butterflies in my belly every time I have the opportunity to cook with a designer, chef or influencer who I admire, I remind myself to use what I love, FOOD, as they grand unifier. It’s the thing that levels the playing field and it’s something I always approach with passion and confidence.
When Jessica Hendricks graduated from New York University, she found herself in Cambodia, a Buddhist country located in the Southeast region of Asia. Upon traveling to Ankor Wat, an exquisite site filled with ancient Buddhist and Hindu temples, Jessica learned about the infamous 1970s genocide. She also came by Nicholas Kristof’s novel Half The Sky, which mainly explores the alarming worldwide issue of human trafficking—Cambodia being one the places where modern-day slavery still exists and targets young females. Inspired by Cambodia’s history and its current issues, Jessica created The Brave Collection—a line of jewelry handmade in Cambodia by local and talented artisans.
