Last Wednesday, I co-hosted a big, fabulous party to celebrate the 1st Anniversary of RunningWithHeels.com. I am a fashion columnist on the site, and my co-host, RWH's editor-in-chief Morgan Williams, and I were so excited to show off our new site design to the huge crowd that turned out. Held at the WALTER showroom in the Fashion District, we were joined by over 130 guests who drank cocktails, checked out our gorgeous "Spring Shoe Showcase," walked our red carpet, and had a really good time. Morgan and I wore beautiful dresses from WALTER's spring collection, and I have to thank Charles David for my amazing shoes!
Running With Heels is an online fashion magazine dedicated completely to shoes, with the exception of my column and that from our celebrity make-up artist Nathan Johnson. So when we started planning the party, we immediately knew we had to showcase some lovely shoes from brands we've worked with on the site. Therefore, we have to extend a huge thank-you to all of the designers who helped us make the showcase something so amazing that even the men at the party kept checking it out! Charles David, Matt Bernson, Delman, Nina, Farylrobin, Tibi, Something Blue, Banfi Zambrelli, Butter, Born, Sofft, daniblack, and Kork-Ease all provided styles admired by the entire party. And of course, another big shoe-industry thank-you goes to our sponsor, FFANY...we're so glad you were a part of this event!
Of the 130+ guests that joined us, we had friends from the fashion world like Joseph Ungoco and Sebastian Smith, and leading shoe designers like Faryl Robin and Matt Bernson. Members of industry press like Footwear News were alongside our Project Runway friends Kevin Christiana & Stella Zotis and the talented Serge Van Lian from TV's Top Design. Rounding out our VIP list? We're so happy that our dear friends WPLJ DJ Blake Hayes, Broadway star Colman Domingo, and one-to-watch actor Nathaniel David Becker could all be there to celebrate with us! Our entire Running With Heels crew helped us host, and I have to specially thank Robin Friebur for being the world's best production assistant during a very hectic day!
This is just the beginning of many Running With Heels parties to come...so if you made it to this one, thank you for coming, and if you didn't...we'll definitely see you next time!
