MoMA PS1’s beloved Warm Up party took a hiatus this season and was replaced by Summer Fridays, featuring D.J. sets in the courtyard from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Aug. 19 lineup featured Jenifa Mayanja and attracted a young, artsy crowd who looked effortlessly cool.
Also that night, Guild Hall held its summer gala honoring Kathy Rayner at the Mulford Farm in East Hampton. The philanthropic crowd, who wore lots of Pucci and Gucci, mingled over cocktails before being seated for dinner and dance performances.
And Frame, an American denim fashion brand, celebrated its men’s wear campaign on Wednesday with a cocktail party at the Noortwyck restaurant in Greenwich Village. Models and influencers, many dressed by Frame, compared notes about the coming fashion week.
‘I use my style to channel the energy I want to feel. I wanted to feel fun and free, and inspire joy and expression in others.’ — Courtney Alexander at MoMA PS1
‘The shirt is called “Zan.” In an abstract way, I’m showing breasts and empowering nudity and vulnerability. It opens a lot of conversations when I wear it. I love that.’ — Melody Hesaraky at MoMA PS1
‘I had the red jacket made for my birthday last year in Miami. I believe that when I go to party, I need to bring something to it in terms of personal flair or style.’ — R. Couri Hay at Guild Hall
Guild Hall raised more than $750,000 at its summer gala to support its arts programming.
