Weekly Roundup In New York: Launches, Anniversaries, And More!



The Big Apple was buzzing all weekend with happenings as New York Fashion Week continues. The streets were jam-packed with style as some of the biggest names in fashion and design walked show to show in the city, only to sit down and walk other people walk past them on the runways.

Diane Von Furstenberg held her runway show last night with a series of coats ripe for fall in caramel toned browns and fringe jackets to ring in the colder climates. The collection was lauded in the jewel-toned warehouse it was shown in. After the event, DVF creative director Jonathan Saunders held an after party at Club Berlin that quickly became the place-to-be for all New Yorkers strutting their stuff for NYFW.

The Beatrice Inn celebrated its 1-year anniversary under chef Angie Mar. The restaurant has found success under a number of different owners, including Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, and the success shows no sign of stopping under Mar. A former chef at the restaurant, Mar bought the space when it was up for sale and has envisioned it as a paradise for all things meat. Guests enjoyed champagne and on-the-bone beef ribs cooked perfectly under Chef Mar’s team to celebrate the milestone.

Blue Light, the upscale cocktail lounge to rival Meatpacking’s club routine, opened to great success over the weekend. The bar’s biggest accomplishment is working to revamp the concept of bottle service by serving “bulk spirits” in decanters to tables willing to accept the up charge for the full-bottle status. While the downstairs cocktail bar The Lately offers great cocktails in a fun space for $17, Blue Light is a great, laid back alternative to the house music-thumping of other Meatpacking establishments.
