Last Thursday we went to a party but we have no idea why. Emily (Rooms) received quite the invitation – a clear plastic tile – to an “evening celebrating design,” hosted by Sewell Lexus, Jacquelin + Philip Taylor and Carl Sewell, III. So we did what anyone without prior Thursday night plans who was invited to a mystery party would do, we went. Apparently Erin, Sean, Leslie and Chandler had also received the invite and came to the same conclusion.
The event was in a warehouse in the Design District with dinner catered by Dean Fearing, and with Veuve Clicquot and Moët flowing freely. A common theme seemed to connect the guests – mid-20s, from Uptown and no idea why they were invited to the chic soiree. However, no one seemed to mind either. A couple rumors suggested Sewell had picked from a few guest lists of recent events in the area.
Everyone donned their best for the mysterious party, sporting the brightest summer looks, but the models who walked among the crowd stood out as they showcased Stanley Korshak’s fall preview. The new IS by Lexus occupied two corners of the room for guests to admire in all its sleekness to match the party. Jeff Mitchell kept the gig alive behind the DJ booth and guests took turns at the photo both setup by Mirmir.
In all, it was a great party with lots of bubbles, and chic food and entertainment. A great Thursday night…even if we’re not really sure why. Thanks Sewell, love the new IS!
