Fashion Week here in NYC ended last week and many are still recovering from what some like to call, "The Fashion Week Hangover." The big real estate event at Cipriani, Hernan Lander and FTL Moda and Art Hearts by Aids Healthcare Foundation and New Roots with David Burke wrapped up the festivities nicely despite the never-ending snow storms.
Cipriani always has the most stylish guests at their events whether or not the theme has anything to do with fashion. Earlier today, at Harry Cipriani on 59th and 5th, one of the executives from Valentino was seated just a few tables away. The menu at Harry Cipriani offers unique specialties as well as classic Italian dishes. While having the rare opportunity to dine with one of the glamorous Public Relations spokespersons, it was thrilling to try the baby artichoke salad with avocados and shaved parmesan as well as the ahi tuna with fennel and fresh mozzarella topped with basil. Dining at Harry Cipriani is quite a scene indeed, with such close proximity to Bergdorf Goodman and Henri Bendel's, the 59th Street location for Cipriani, Harry Cipriani is the perfect place to see and be seen.

The last day of FW at Lincoln Center began with Hernan Lander. Each piece that graced the runway featured a unique take on the Fall trends: Houndstooth, sheer backs, leather accents and longer hem lines. The icy weather did not keep the fashionistas away and the Hernan Lander show was well received. To view the entire collection, please visit: http://www.hernanlander.com
FW ended with FTL Moda and Art Hearts Fashion presented by Aids Healthcare Foundation. Several designers collaborated on the show and each look was interesting and very colorful. The theatre was packed with over 1500 in attendance. Please visit: http://www.artheartsfashion.com/ to learn more.
Another charity, New Roots, The International Rescue Committee featured a "Pop-up Shop" in the storefront of the Empire Hotel with a menu by celebrity chef, David Burke.
Since 1933, The International Rescue Committee (IRC), has helped refugees rebuild their lives in the United States with the New Roots program promoting community gardening, small-business farming and education about nutrition. Members of the media were able to sample some of the dishes created exclusively by David Burke for the New Roots program. To learn more, please visit: http://www.rescue.org
FW may be over, but chic designers and great venues like Cipriani never go out of style.
