During Fashion Week I was asked to host an event at the Marimekko Flagship store on 5th avenue. I was excited to host and be a part of this because my relationship with the brand goes back to my days as a home design editor when I was working in magazines. So this time around, it was fun for me to be involved in the clothing side of things versus only home decor. I loved picking out my outfit – hello striped shirt and amazing horse pants! And to feel extra special for that evening, I was able to snag appointments beforehand with The Stylisted to get my hair and makeup done. The day of the event, I felt so pampered. The girls,Kailie Joe and Natasha Vinson came to my apartment and all I had to do was sit there and watch a movie while they worked their magic. It took the stress off of me of having to get ready because all I had left to do was show up at the Marimekko store, change into my outfit and I was ready for the night!

Needless to say, the party was a blast with so many fun people there supporting the brand. I gave a little speech at the beginning of the night, then spent the rest of the time mingling and meeting a lot of customers who have been wearing Marimekko for decades. There was a DJ, champagne and a photo booth, which I think almost everyone used at least once. (I know I used it at least three times!) But I would say the photos above and below, taken by Andrew Werner, tell the story of how colorful, electric and fun the event really was, so make sure to click below to see the rest of the photos from the event. They’re really fun, trust me. :) xo
