Fashion Week has moved on to London and that’s probably a good thing considering how exhausting we found the ten day marathon of parties, shows and presentations. The first half of the week was good but the best after-parties happened as the show schedule was winding down. Kanye came out for V Man, SoHo House hosted a party for an iPad app and a new Guess flagship opened.
The V Man release party at the yet-to-be-opened Mondrian SoHo went hard as a…well, you know. Kanye West was in the building with Keri Hilson and most of the fashionable world. Drag queen Lady Bunny spun while Alexander Wang, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Vera Wang, Prabal Gurung, Brad Goreski and 300 of their closest friends surved the go-go dancers and grabbed money that rained from the sky at 1am.
Before raving downtown, most of the party goers had gone a bit uptown for drinks at the SoHo House to celebrate Alex Dellal (brother of model Alice and boyfriend of Princess Charlotte Casiraghi) and Post, his new iPad app. No royalty was spotted but the crowd of several hundred fashion types didn’t seem to mind as they drank champagne and compared notes on the front rows, model spills and street style at the tents.
