A CFDA Afterparty Showdown!

Comments | | Print

(NEW YORK) While we’re all anxiously awaiting Diane Kruger calling out the name of the womenswear designer of the year at tonight’s CFDA Awards, we expect that many members of the chic set are just as anxious for the whole thing to be over--so they can get to all the fabulous after-fêtes, of course. This year’s post-party itinerary includes two sure-to-be-hot stops, both conveniently located in the West Village.

Calvin Klein will host the “First Party on the High Line,” the kick-off event after what seems like ages of anticipation of the opening of the new west side elevated park. Friends of the High Line will be holding their summer benefit tonight at Chelsea Piers while the CFDA set attend the award shows, and both teams will convene après for the High Line’s first major event. Expect Italo Zucchelli (The Daily’s projected winner for the menswear designer of the year trophy), Francisco Costa, and CK-philes like Ashley Olsen, Eva Mendes, and more to stop by for a cocktail and a congratulatory (fingers crossed!) air kiss or two.

Expect another set of revellers at The Jane, hosted by hipster institution Opening Ceremony and Black Frame. Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy, Alexander Wang (who’ll also be picking up an award tonight, if our predictions prove true…) and Scott Sternberg of Band of Outsiders are all slated to attend.

So which party will be hotter? We'll tell you tonight, darlings…
