On March 18, Dallas fashion designer Kira Plastinina took on the Big Apple by welcoming influencers and members of the fashion media to an intimate dinner party on the 21st floor of the chic Glass Houses in Manhattan.
The modern space provided the right ambience for celebrating her Lublu Kira Plastinina fall/winter 14-15 collection. Plastinina and co-host, renowned stylist pal J. Logan Horne, enlisted the help of designer Dan Mazzarini of BHDM Design, who used a palette of black, white and bronze to create a dramatic evening effect, using the city skyline as a backdrop.
“I’ve imagined prints and patterns found in the city landscape,” Plastinina said. “The city is always a magically dark space, which you can see through the negative space in the patterns.”
Guests — including Nicky Hilton, musician Mia Moretti, Dannijo’s Jodie Snyder and Danielle Snyder, Aslaug Magnusdottir, Gabriel Levy, Cleo Wade, and Black Banditz founder Dan Regan — were greeted by a series of photographs highlighting the collection, shot by fashion and lifestyle photographer Josh Welch. Then drinks, dinner and conversation ensued.
“Last night was very special,” Plastinina said. “I was honored to have stylist and fashion it-boy, Logan Horne, co-host with me as we celebrated with our fashion family. Between designing spring 2015 and work travel, I am very much looking forward to enjoying my last couple of months at SMU.”
