Celebration was in store when we attended stylist-to-the-stars Lauren Rae Levy's New York birthday celebration and New York Fashion Week kickoff. Always one for themes, Lauren threw a classic "Black and White" party. Each and every guest managed to come up with a creative outfit, blending the duality of the colors together. Party guests included many of Lauren's friends including GQ mens stylist Keino Benjamin, noted fashion photographer & Fleur'd founder Andrew Werner, PR mogul Courtney Daniels, Refinery 29 writer & P.S. It's Fashion creator Liz Black, and many more. Located at the Lower East Side hotspot "The Box," which is self-proclaimed the "Theatre of Varieties," guests enjoyed drinks provided by Tequila Partida, SVEDKA (we had quite a few!), VOGA Italia moscato, and even some delectable light bites courtersy of Tu-Lu's Gluten-Free Bakery. Indulging on all of these spledors, guests were lounging on the comfortable white couches, soft beds, and even took to the stage at the end of the night. Browse through the pictures and experience the party for yourself.
