Fashion Week Parties it Up for Bowie, Libertine

When it comes to New York Fashion Week, no amount of sleet, snow and bitter cold can keep the stylistas away from the best parties. And fittingly kicking off FW at Electric Room at Dream Downtown was the David Bowie Tribute show. Performed by M.A.R.S. – comprised of Michael Houghton, Andy Hilfiger, Robby Hoffman and Scott Lipps (Marky Ramone jumped in on drums, and longtime Bowie guitarist Earl Slick also joined in) – they played for a packed house of models and industry luminaries such as Tommy & Dee Hilfiger, Elle Dee and Erin Cullison. It was a worthy fashion encomium to The Thin White Duke.

A couple of nights later, the party continued at Khan’s perpetually groovy Electric Room, as iconoclastic LA fashion house Libertine (Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are fans) returned after a 10-year hiatus from NYFW. Its glamorous after party bash was celebrating the latest collection by designer-maverick Johnson “Johnny Boy” Hartig. A glittering mix of the famous and fabulous, including Gemma Kahng, Pippa Cohen and Chloe Greisman, partied it up in enough to make up for the label’s decade long absence.
