New Year’s Eve in New York City can be a magical night if you go to the right parties. We didn’t want you to spend your hard-earned dollars on something mediocre, so here is our guide to the hottest spots for ringing in 2012. Dress up, kick on your sparkly shoes and paint the town sequin at these fashionable fetes.
Satya Twena didn’t fall into design by mistake. Raised in an eclectic family of artists, the appetite to create was in her blood from the very beginning. After years working in the interior design business, Satya decided to test the waters of the fashion industry after realizing her great love for millinery. Lucky for us, her architecturally-inspired hats designed with experimental materials are truly wearable art. I got the chance to sit down with Satya and chat about her family history, vertical inspiration and the rise of the fascinator.
My girl Lindsay Luv has been busy lately! She was recently featured on the BlackBook Magazine website, and also DJed their last event on Wednesday. Her interview is amazing! They talk about everything from her inspiration as a DJ to where you can find her in NYC. Be sure to check out the full interview at BlackBook.com, and don’t forget to come see Lindsay DJ at the Soho Grand Hotel every other Thursday!
Work was not easy on Friday after we all partied the night away at the Soho Grand Hotel the night before. If you weren’t aware, Fashion Indie co hosts a party every Thursday night at the hotel that’s organized by Niko Liakaris. We’re also lucky enough to team up with DJ Lindsay Luv, Jon Daly, Gabi Richmond and Against Nature as well.
This week we had a few special guests from CFE (Centre for Fashion Enterprise) and guest DJ Allan Bendy, along with Kate Lanphear and some friends from NYLON magazine all in attendance. Belvedere was kind enough to provide the party with way more than enough vodka, and like all of Niko’s parties, we didn’t let any of that go to waste.
Fashion’s Night Out was no match for the usual Thursday night routine that has been picking up steam week after week. Thursdays at the Soho Grand Hotel hosted by Niko Liakaris, Jon Daly, Gabi Richmond, and yours truly Fashion Indie welcomed an even bigger crowd than normal this week! However, this week was a cause to celebrate, as it was the after party for the opening of a brand new boutique Against Nature. Keep your eye out for this week’s flyer in the next couple days, it will definitely be a great way to end your Fashion Week.
Thank you to Adam Perella for providing us with all these amazing shots from the party! Be sure to check out more of his work on his website!
It’s plain and simple: the Soho Grand Hotel is the one and only place to see and be seen by New York’s trendiest on Thursday nights. Photographer Katya Moorman captured the action as buyers, models, investors and designers strolled in for a few drinks and a bit of socializing. Incase you didn’t see the Twitter updates, yes, there were brief appearances by Josh Hartnett, Demi Moore and Grace Jones, among others. If that’s not enough to get you to join us next time, I don’t know what else will!

Big name actor Josh Hartnett was spotted weaving his way through the crowd to the bar at the Soho Grand last night. Like every Thursday night, the Soho Grand was the place to be as some New York’s trendiest turned up to enjoy some amazing drinks and even better music from DJ’s Lindsay Luv and Jamie Biden.
It seems that the hosting skills of Niko Liakaris, Jon Daly, Fashion Indie and Fresh Productions NYC are top notch, because another notable character by the name of Grace Jones was spotted enjoying the scenery as well. While Grace was chatting up the room feeling right in her element, Hartnett took a view of the room for a corner seat the bar to enjoy his drink.
After a long weekend of vodka infused fun, I finally have a second to relax and recap what happened in my head. If you don’t know by now, Fashion Indie has taken a fondness to a certain Thursday night party that is shaping up to be one of the trendiest parties in this city. Thursdays @ Soho Grand is a new party hosted by Niko Liakaris, Jon Daly, Brandon Bogard, and Gabi Richmond at (duh!) the Soho Grand Hotel every (duh! again) Thursday.
This week featured some amazing photography from the super talented (and newly aquianted) Katya Moorman of Style Defined. There were some very fashionable folks in the crowd too, just check the gallery! Want to join the party?
