Dept. of Hungover.
Certainly, the sign of a successful party is when the room becomes packed with friendly, beautful people, plenty of drinks are served, awards, laughter and gossip get exchanged and you wake in the morning with barely a memory of how you got home.
That is how it all went last Friday at The Hotel on Rivington
(which proved to be true to its name as the most gentrification we had ever seen in such a small space).
When we first started having AT get togethers, it was a slow footed affair, but Friday we tipped into a whole new realm. Finalists and contestants showed up shoulder to shoulder with designers and vendors who were all in town to attend ICFF.
We just barely held the attention of the crowd long enough (due to an errant birthday party at the other end of the room) to thank our sponsors and introduce our top four finalists.
Brandon, Patrick, Paul and Robert all showed up with groupies in tow (Hillary sent regrets as she was away for the weekend), Design Public
showed up to herald their launch this weekend at Design Downtown, and The Awesome Lane Johnson
took photographs of it all. The party didn't wind down until after 10pm. Take a look at the pics and post your gossip below... MGR
