An Uptown Soirée Goes Down The Rabbit Hole...

by Guest of A Guest · June 7, 2024

    This Wednesday evening, New York's chicest found themselves down the rabbit hole, all the way uptown. An annual society favorite, this year's New York Botanical Garden's Conservatory Ball was its most whimsical yet, inspired by the property's summer exhibition, Wonderland: Curious Nature.

    Guests arrived for the black-tie affair in their Through the Looking-Glass best, finding themselves quite at home in the flower-filled show, which features thousands of stems and lawns of kinetic mushroom sculptures by FauldHaus Art Collective.

    Following cocktails, Peter Som, Sophie Elgort, Jennifer Creel, Laura Kim, Isolde Brielmaier and more sauntered over to the very psychedelically decorated Conservatory Tent for a beautiful evening of dinner and dancing.

    Curious to see who wore what?
