FEATURED VENUE
CARRIAGE HOUSE AT WAVERLY PLACE
Carriage House at Waverly Place is an elegant statement venue in the heart of Greenwich Village. Constructed in 1826, the Carriage House was the former residence of notable playwright Lorraine Hansberry (A Raisin in the Sun) and a hub for artists and thought leaders in the 1960’s, including Nina SimoneJames BaldwinLena Horne, and Harry Belafonte. Later in the 1990’s, it was the home of Kate Moss and then fiancé Johnny Depp.

The Carriage House offers clients a unique and unexpected New York experience. Both corporate and social event friendly,  guests easily enter the 1,800 SF triplex through the main building and cross one of two private courtyards included in the rental. The Great Room features 25-ft high ceilings, a vaulted skylight and a working wood burning fire place. The recently renovated full kitchen is complete with a concealed Subzero refrigerator and full size wine coolergas rangeconvection oven, and finished with high-end Italian cabinets and fixtures. The downstairs Suite adds additional space for entertaining or for back of house, while the upstairs Loft is a dramatic overlook for a DJ or focal point.

ON THE RADAR
SHOPBOP | 201 MULBERRY
Just in time for Fashion Week, Shopbop transformed 201 Mulberry and brought its women's designer wear website to life. Filtered through an autumn lens, producers re-envisioned the white box space with a palette of fall colors and textures. Editors and influencers perused the collection and tagged favorite items with the #MakeShopbopYours hashtag. Shopbop also partnered with Foster Dogs NYC to pair guests with anyone's greatest accessory, an adorable puppy for adoption.

YOUNG LIVING | MICHELSON STUDIO
Young Living introduced a new collection of essential oils and related products at Michelson Studio. Our friends at TH Productions transformed the space and created elaborate sensory experiences for media and influencers. Within the West Village photography studio, four 14' x 14' individually crafted rooms were built to conceal whimsical settings paired with fragrant aromatherapy. Each room modeled the company’s new essential blends, bringing the essence of the rooms to life. Each expertly executed, it would be hard to choose a favorite between the Lavender, Citrus, Peppermint and Floral suites. Cleverly presented bites by Mary Guiliani Catering & Events added to the experience while the stunning sunset views from the studio were the proverbial cherry on top.

DJ SPOTLIGHT
HESTA PRYNN | DJ SPOTLIGHT
We sat down with the fiery red-head and DJ extraordinaire, Hesta Prynn, who shared her inspirations, passions and most unique performance.

What is your background and what inspired you to become a DJ?
I started out in an all-girl hip-hop group called Northern State.  We toured with The Roots for two years. Questlove taught me how to DJ on vinyl and the rest is history.  

If you could play for anyone, anywhere who and where would it be? 
I have been lucky enough to play for designers I love, like Oscar de la Renta and Erin Fetherston, as well as personalities like Jimmy Fallon and Amy Schumer. I have also opened for Kendrick Lamar and Solange.
 
What's your go-to song guaranteed to get a crowd on the dance floor?
I've been called an "encyclopedic" DJ because I play the hits in all genres.  I like to mix the hits with throwbacks. I'm the person who will play Dua Lipa into Tears for Fears into Justin Bieber into Stevie Wonder. Michael Jackson works across the board, as does Whitney Houston. If it feels good, I'll do it and the crowd always responds. 
 
Where is the most unusual place you've performed? 
In June I performed on a yacht in Cannes during a crazy windstorm. My vinyl literally flew into the sea! 
 
Aside from creating music, what are your other passions? 
I volunteer in a women's mental health clinic and I am about to publish a children's book about female political leaders from across the world. I also co-produce the New York City Drone Film Festival and the upcoming Los Angeles Drone Film Festival which were both started by my husband. I know a lot about drones!
