Rebecca Minkoff just launched her first-ever denim line. To celebrate the exciting launch, the Cali-raised designer threw a big bash in New York, where she currently resides. Although Minkoff has settled into the East Coast life quite nicely (she's set to open a 3,800-square-foot flagship in NYC's SoHo neighborhood this fall), she still turns to the West to perfect her designs: "All of our Rebecca Minkoff DENIM is made in the heart of downtown Los Angeles with the finest-quality, locally sourced, power-stretch fabrics."
