Daily Candy launched its Fashion Week blog—sorry, ahem, Fashion Week Dossier for NYC fashion week—and is picking up again for LA Fashion Week through March 16. In celebration, the DC team kicked itself off with a party at the Brasserie at the recently-minted Palihouse extended-stay boutique hotel.
The crowd had the requisite fashion-y types—PRs, designers, journalists, stylists, etc. Of note, NYC-based handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff reported a successful trip to Paris to sell her chic wares; LA designer Geren Lockhart of Geren Ford was present, outfitting virtually the entire DC crew, save LA Editor Crystal Meers, who wore Whitley Kros, designed by party attendee Marissa Ribisi (sister of Giovanni, married to Beck). Also of note - the Brasserie's hamburger sliders, which were unfashionably fattening and delicious.
