I realised I never shared these images with you.

As you can see, it was one of the most stylish parties I ever attended.

It was held in honour of Ari Seth Cohen, founder of the fabulous site Advanced Style, who was back for a short visit in New York.

Our hosts were the amazing Debra Rapoport and star of the Advanced Style Movie (whom I featured and interviewed here) and her partner Stan in their beautiful West Village apartment.

Enjoy some of the impressions of the party with images taken by Denton Taylor and his wife Teresa. There was a great mix of both young and older people. Unfortunately, I did not get to speak to everyone on the party so I don’t have all the names but I think you will enjoy all the style that was on show!

The party brings back fond memories of my time in New York and of all the fabulous people I met there. Thank you so much for inviting me Debra and Stan. Can’t wait to go back soon!
