What: Alice + Olivia Store Opening
Where: Highland Park Village
Who: Team Alice Chelsea Krahenbuhl and Madeleine Ashton; featured artist Rebecca Carter; bright young things Rachel Michell, Nancy Gopez, Meredith Brewer, Jill Gragg, Maggie Kincaid, Louisa Harwood, Kristina Wrenn, Melanie Spiegel, Debby Mullen, Marianne Newson, Brinkley Maclin, Dana Morrison, and Sunny Sliger
PC Moment: At dusk, bright lights beamed from the shop’s glassy façade, marking the perfect little spot to party within the Village. Alice + Olivia founder and designer Stacey Bendet is famous for embodying a certain je ne sais quoi, and what awaited partygoers inside — a whimsical mix of margaritas, music, fashion and fine art — was just as indescribably charming.
