A Look at the Less Sartorial Side of Fashion Week

by EVAN MULVIHILL · September 16, 2010

 

With celebs mobbing so many of Fashion Week's stellar events, we thought we'd turn our eye toward three of last night's parties that flew a little bit under the radar. With a focus on abstract art, fine art, and photography, they proved that Fashion Week is much, much more than an Anna Wintour-directed parade of fancy clothes:

Last night, Vartali Salon hosted a Wine and Cheese reception for "Coral And Ice", the new exhibition by Anne Doubliet. In addition, a new bio-pop music video was screened, which was directed by Bad Brilliance (artist Andrew Strasser), hence the balloon. (Can we get one of those for our next party? Everyone had a blast posing with it.)

In the West Village's Gallery Sand, Marianne Aulie and Cody Ross, also known as Priestess NYC, put on a fantastic, modern art/fashion show. There were also cupcakes, as well as the chance to browse the gallery's more traditional fine art.

Max's Kansas City Book Party

Video installations, rock photography, and music, oh my! The gallery opening for Max's Kansas City: Art, Glamour, Rock and Roll celebrated luminous photography by Bob Gruen, Anton Perich, and others, with writing by famed rockers Lou Reed, Lenny Kaye, and Danny Fields.
