Last Friday, Saks Fifth Avenue hosted a party for the one-and-only Donna Karan to celebrate her Boston Common magazine cover. (Over the next couple of months, we’ll be working with Saks to cover some of the awesome events they’re involved with, and this one was our first stop).
The party took place in a warehouse space on Drydock Avenue, just behind the Boston Design Center. The out-of-the-way venue actually made for a gorgeous view of the sunset over the city.
A view that was even more enjoyable with a cocktail in hand.
But let’s go back inside the room before I get too poetic. Plus, the people in the room were the most interesting part of the night. Among the many fabulous Bostonians we ran into…
Christina K Pierce of CKP Fashion…
…salon-owner Mario Russo and the girls from Regan Communications
And of course, Donna Karan herself.
The highlight of the night, though, was the runway show. Donna (because blogging about someone means you can be on a first name basis with them) sent so many great fall coats and dresses down that runway that I decided to dedicate a whole slideshow to it. And here it is.
Like always, I have to give props to Andrew Wang for the A+ photos. One day I will actually stop and take a picture of him for a change, so you know he exists.
