(NEW YORK) "The funny thing is, this was supposed to be a pop-up," said Giovanna Randall of her brand Honor's new boutique at 68 Gansevoort Street. "But when it was finished, it looked so beautiful that it just needed to be permanent." For a brand that just launched, officially, for Spring 2011, it's not a bad start. The designer's store opening party, held last night, benefitted New Yorkers for Children, the not-for-profit organization that works to improve the lives of children in foster care in New York City. Accordingly, philanthropic chicettes like Ashley Wick, Amy McFarland, Lesley Blume, and Lisa Salzer staged a mass exodus to the Meatpacking, sporting diaphanous floral separates, various shades of nude.

Champagne and white wine were invoked—in quantities—to cool down the fashions et on the warmest night of 2011. "We skipped spring and went right to summer!" said event co-host Cena Jackson. Annelise Peterson broke out the short-shorts for the occasion, while DJ Alexandra Richards managed to find time to throw a white gown over her swimsuit just minutes after arriving at the airport from Turks & Caicos. For Randall, it's been an indirect road to fashiondom. Trained as an opera singer, she studied pre-med before attending FIT and turning her attentions to design. Randall's collection, which is manufactured in New York, is named after her younger sister. Not a bad homage.
