ON THE RADAR
LUMIFY // 399 LAFAYETTE
399 Lafayette, one of our newest raw venues near Astor Place, was transformed by Lumify into a beauty lounge filled with stunning activations for its "Redness Reliever Eye Drops" launch. With the help of our friends at BMF Media, the new eye drop brand, which is owned by Bausch + Lomb, utilized the event space in a unique and eye-catching way. The product launch was complete with a Copper+Crane product station, a photo booth, lounge furniture, and passed bites. Guests pampered themselves from start to finish as the space was filled with beauty bars and PRIV professionals. The new and clean aesthetic of this NoHo venue proved to be an ideal canvas for this event.
OPENING CEREMONY // (LE) POISSON ROUGE

Opening Ceremony, a U.S.-based multi-label retail store founded by Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, debuted their new collection during New York Fashion Week at the iconic nightlife venue, (Le) Poisson Rouge. Over 40 LGBTQ models and performers appeared in the show, with the host being none other than Ru Paul's Drag Race Season 9 winner, Sasha Velour. The show was attended by various famous faces, including Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland and Whoopi Goldberg. The event title being, "The Gift of Showz," continuously proved itself and ended with an unbelievable surprise performance by Christina Aguilera.

MIXING IT UP
DJ HESTA PRYNN // THE WHITNEY MUSEUM

Hesta Prynn DJ'ed Andy Warhol’s 90th birthday bash at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Her set was inspired by Andy Warhol’s love for- and enduring influence on- music. Tracks from Lou Reed, Mick Jagger, Liza Minelli, Aretha Franklin, and Debbie Harry were all in the mix—and reflected only a handful of the many musicians whose careers intersected with Warhol’s.

DJ SAMANTHA MICHELLE // CHRISTIE'S LATES

DJ Samantha Michelle performed at the Christie’s Lates event, “Modern Moves: Reinventing Tradition” held after hours at their Rockefeller Center galleries. Guests sipped rosé to the sounds of soul, rhythm and blues, early disco, and rock and roll from the 1960s and 70s. With a guest list curated by Sarah Bray and Anne Spilman, Samantha was inspired and provided an eclectic yet vividly vintage sound featuring the likes of Thelma Houston, Jacques Dutronc, Count Five, Wilson Pickett, and the great, legend Aretha Franklin.
