Lela Rose Ditched Having A Runway Show For A Floral-Filled Fashionable Cocktail Soirée

by Guest of A Guest · September 13, 2023

    Why have a runway show when you can just throw a cocktail party?

    Ever the consummate hostess - if you've not yet read her book Fresh Air Affairs trust me you are in for a real treat - designer Lela Rose gathered a flock of her fashion favorites for good old fashioned evening of dressed up drinks. Stylist Kate Young co-hosted the soirée, which had hot spot Holiday Bar's waitstaff circling about with a parade of floral-filled sips, a nod to the brand's romantic, feminine Spring / Summer 2024 collection.

    DJ Chelsea Leyland set the playful tone for the evening, as the worlds of art, fashion, entertainment and food collided, with Idina Menzel, Quentin Jones, Pat Cleveland, Eniko Mihalik, Brianna Lance, Destinee Ross-Sutton, Maayan Zilberman, Noot Seear, Devon Windsor and more chatting the night away.
