Last night guests gathered at Brian Reyes Studio for a kickoff bash for the Junior Society Dance Into Fashion Benefit featuring Reyes' upcoming collection. Socialites in attendance included Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Paul Arnhold, Jamie Schneider, and Molly Howard. -
Reyes is still fairly new to the fashion scene, launching his first collection only four years ago. This Colombian designer dresses celebrities such as Jennifer Garner, America Ferrera, Leighton Meester and Kate Hudson and his BFF Rachel Bilson. His collections are colorful and youthful, yet sophisticated.
Ballet Hispanico Director Eduard Vilaro welcomed guests and invited them to try on pieces from Reyes' collection. Attendees got the chance for a one-on-one shopping date with Reyes. All ages were present some looking sophisticated, others casual but trendy. There were dancers, looking poised and put together but also friends of the designer, representing his clientele (or his "ideal woman".) These people make business casual look chic. Every trend and style was represented in the crowd: stripes, polka dots, plaid, floral prints.
Lily Grant was very nautical in stripes
Diana Ruettiger went for fun in polka dots
Paul Arnhold looked rugged but trendy in plaid
Meredith Raskopf was lovely in a floral printed top
I wonder if Mr. Reyes dressed all of his guests...
