Event: Port District Block Party




Last Saturday marked the Port District first anniversary, and to celebrate they threw a big block party. The three stores celebrating were Maison Rabih Kayrouz, Karen Chekerdjian and IF. The road has closed off and a big tent was set up in front of the stores so guests could mingle. There was a DJ, an open bar and a very original food presentation. Plates are just so passe, Prosciutto di Parma and cheese were sliced right infront of you and you just grab whatever you like. Guests were able to wonder from one store to another and admire the amazing work by these designers. 
I've always been a big fan of Maison Rabih Kayrouz and every since I saw him at the London Meets Beirut Conference, I really wanted to meet him. I finally got my chance on Saturday, and was able to take a photo with him.......

It was great to see all the work live right in front of me, as wonderful as it is to look at photos of beautiful gowns on my computer, it's a whole other story being able to feel the textures and see the details up close!

After drooling in the RK store, I headed over to Karen Chekerdjian to look at the amazing brass work. I wasn't able to spend a lot of time in there or speak with her because she was being interviewed and there were two camera crews... Fun fact though, my dad and her dad went to college together! What a small world :)
The last stop was the IF boutique. If I had all the money in the world, or at least just not as broke as I currently am. I would have a BIG shopping spree in this store. Everything is very Soho and completely wearable, with pieces from many labels such as Comme Des Garcon, Dries Van Noten, and Martin Margiela just to name a few.
