The Eklund Gomes Foundation
Last Thursday at The Garage, the ‘Kings of New York real estate,’ Frederik Eklund and John Gomes celebrated 10 years of partnership at Douglas Elliman. The Garage was transformed into an opulent enchanted forest with living walls, crystal chandeliers, nouveau French furnishings, and a mysterious white haze that clung to the floor for added effect (pictured bottom left).
The dynamic duo preempted the announcement of their joint charity, The Eklund Gomes Foundation (supporting New York’s homeless), with a marching band and majorettes. Then following the announcement, a 21-person angelic choir serenaded guests. Later, the hosts brought down the house, when they reappeared dressed as space-age Marie Antoinettes, wigs and all, and VOGUED to Madonna while accompanied by glow stick whirling backup dancers. It really was spectacular. You had to see it to believe it.
