Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28’s New York Fashion Week Party People

Every international fashion tribe needs a fabulous way to kick off the Fashion Week season, and for the editors, designers and stylists who gathered at the beloved downtown restaurant Indochine last night, the Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28 dinner provided all the elements of a perfect party.

Our collaboration with the international style icon is brand new now for spring, so Thursday’s party was both a celebration of modern wardrobe essentials and all that lies ahead in New York City this week. From stylist Rachel Zoe and Valentino brand ambassador Carlos Souza to Caroline Issa, who helped host a very similar Nordstrom collaboration kickoff this time last year, these were guests whose iCalendars are star-studded and show-packed. The beauty of the night and our guests is that they make it all look so chic and easy.
