Two generations of fashion icons met last week at Advanced Style, our Fashion Week party with Ari Seth Cohen and Tavi Gevinson of The Style Rookie. We have deep respect for the art of fashion, and little for the pretension and conformity that can come along with it. So it was a true thrill and well of inspiration to meet with like minds for whom style is about self-expression and magic and not about being photographed. That said, we’re really glad we were photographing, for now we have a bit to remember a great night with. And Iris Apfel's googly-eye bracelet in such close proximity to Tavi's Laura Palmer princess crown. Why? Just because.

We had an incredible time on Tuesday night with the ladies of Advanced Style — our Fashion Week party with Tavi Gevinson and Ari Seth Cohen boasted waves of mind-melting fashion, ceiling-scraping hats, and two 100th birthday parties. And, it’s no easy feat to get 200 people at a Fashion Week party to sway back and forth in a singalong, so hats of to Ilona Smithkin and her Eyelash Cabaret. Here’s some footage by German fashion blog TwoforFashion to give you a taste. More photos, interviews and video to come…


We’re thrilled to host Tavi Gevinson of The Style Rookie and Ari Seth Cohen, editor of Advanced Style — featured above on Nowness — on September 13 at Ace Hotel New York for a cross-generational celebration of style, flamboyance, color and not giving a #$%@ about what other people think. We’ll be cutting a 100th birthday cake by Nine Cakes and enjoying a gallery show of Ari’s foxy cast. Tavi and Ari are hosting some informal salons on style and Ilona performs her Eyelash Cabaret. Stay tuned.
