NYC Nightlife Takes Over Paris For Fashion Week

by Stephanie Maida · October 4, 2016

Richie Akiva, Angelo Bianchi, Tommy Saleh? In New York City, these are the names to know in nightlife if you're hoping to party alongside the likes of Kanye, Kendall, or any other major star on the scene. Apparently, they're the names to know in Europe as well. This Paris Fashion Week, NYC heavy hitters brought hot spots like 1OAK, Up&Down, and The Blond to the City of Light for some highkey debauchery, France-style. On Thursday, Gigi Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio and Doutzen Kroes partied at L'Arc to toast Akiva's birthday, along with Butter Group partners Ronnie Madra and Darren Dzienciol. The 1OAK x Up&Down pop-up at L'Arc continued through the weekend with more New York partygoers. Meanwhile, on Rue de Bassano, 11 Howard's premier watering hole, The Blond, took over Raspoutine in its first international venture. Collaborating with Tommy Saleh’s (in)famous New York New York party, the venue partnered with Wilhelmina Models and Cult of New York to throw a wild bash for the style set. Peek the pictures and ask yourself, could Paris ever be as cool as New York? (It's possible.)
