    Last Thursday, non-profit arts organization BOFFO Building Fashion held the opening reception of Irene Neuwirth + Marc Fornes/THEVERYMANY at the jewelry designer's new TriBeCa pop-up shop.

    Attendees included Jake Gyllenhaal, and the dance floor was filled with indie-darlings like Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, Grizzly Bear singer Ed Droste, and Strokes' drummer Fabrizio Moretti, who swayed to tunes by Chris Bear of Grizzly Bear.

    Irene Neuwirth has emerged as one the new leading jewelry designers in the US. Her use of strong colors and bold designs have made this designer's jewels a celeb favorite and can be seen sported on the red carpet by stars like Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Marcia Cross and Katie Holmes.

    Neuwirth collaborated with architect Marc Fornes to design the cavernous space at 57 Walker Street, which will host her jewelry designs through October 12th.
