GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS: DESIGNER RACHEL ROY KICKS OFF NYFW WITH A LADIES LUNCH FOR LADIES.

We always like a good garden party, but what we love is a good garden party in the middle of an icy New York winter. Kicking off NYFW yesterday, women’s wear designer Rachel Roy hosted an intimate lunch at Isola, the idyllic atrium restaurant inside the Mondrian Hotel SoHo. Fashion Editors and high-profile influencers like Lauren Bush Lauren, Tali Lennox, Lauren Remington Platt and Iman dined over chitarra, smoked ricotta ravioli and biscotti in support of Roy’s new “Self Rule” campaign. The female empowerment project benefits Step Up, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to “inspiring women to inspire girls,” and is driven by a Roy-designed graphic t-shirt featuring the campaign’s slogan. Packaged in elegant paper and twine, a t-shirt lined the chair of each guest, and will be available for purchase this coming April at Macy’s. All in all, it was one chic party, and one small step for womankind.
